Taylor Swift is “Ready for It.” “It” being a brand new Manhattan townhouse, that is! The megastar singer just dropped $18 million on a stunning, 27-foot-wide pad in the heart of the stylish Tribeca neighborhood. It’s safe to say this property is the dream home both Swifties and non-Swifties alike.
Fully renovated from top to bottom, the 5148-square-foot townhouse manages to encompass all the amenities one could dream of in a Manhattan home. On the lower level, a theater, gym, spa steam bath, and bar provide as many options as a luxury gym membership, without the sweaty locker rooms. Head up the stainless steel stairs to the first floor, where a nanny/guest suite has its own entrance, while the Boffi kitchen is furnished with Miele & Gaggenau appliances and limestone heated floors, as well as Italian cabinetry. The great room is a spacious and comfortable spot to hang out by the fireplace, with a large skylight allowing plenty of light to stream in. On the second floor, antique French wide plank oak floors continue into two bedrooms, both of which have custom closets, Italian limestone baths, a jet tub, and waterfall showers. Almost unheard of in New York, the spacious planted terrace features Japanese paper glass walls and a natural gas grill, perfect for when Taylor’s girl gang decides to come over. On the third floor, the luxurious master suite is the picture of relaxation, thanks to wide plank floors, his/her walk in closets and dressing rooms, a wet bar, and a master bath furnished in limestone.
Here’s an interesting fact: the townhouse is actually the spot where disgraced French politician Dominique Strauss-Kahn served out his house arrest in 2011. We’re guessing Taylor is well aware of her new home’s history; as you would expect, Swift is no newcomer to the New York City real estate market, having owned in the Tribeca neighborhood in the past. But that’s not Swift’s only territory: she’s owned a bevy of sprawling estates throughout the US, including a $25 million mansion in Beverly Hills, CA, a seaside estate in Watch Hill, RI with a sign out front that reads “I knew you were trouble when you walked in- no trespassing”, and multiple properties in the country music capital of the US, Nashville, TN. Talk about our “Wildest Dreams”…
