If this Grove Street townhouse gives you a strange feeling of deja-view, that’s probably because it’s had more cameos than Alfred Hitchcock.
For a couple of decades, Paramount based its New York set on the stretch of Greenwich Village where sits this 1850 Greek revival townhouse. Plus, on the corner there’s the enviably hip, yet affordable loft from Friends. Given the $14.9 million price tag on this five-bedroom spot at 28 Grove, you’re unlikely to get too many under-employed gorgeous young things living down the street these days.
This 22-foot townhouse sold for a mere $5 million in 2006. Since then it’s been gut renovated, without losing the original marble mantelpiece or eight-foot front garden. There are also some features that we can safely say are not original, including an elevator and a breakfast closet that keeps all those shiny appliances from spoiling the 19th century chic, according to the Halstead listing. --Laura Kusisto
