Live Next To Sandra Bullock In SoHo!

I was searching online and saw that the lower-level apartment at 116 Sullivan Street is for rent by B’apple Real Estate broker Martina Dechevska for $8,995.  Its also a whopping 1,700 square feet (1,250 on the first floor and 500 in the lower level).

For most of you who don’t know, 116 Sullivan Street is a landmarked townhouse that has been undergoing an extensive renovation for the past year.  The building was originally constructed in 1832 as a two story townhouse and two additional stories were added in 1872 when more immigrants were moving to the neighborhood.

I toured the apartment this past Sunday at the open house!  Check out my one minute YouTube video!

Rumor has it a physician bought the apartment and has been renovating it ever since into a single-family home.  However, the owners decided to put the lower-level unit for rent.  Its a one-bedroom, 1-and-a-half bath ground floor apartment with a non-windowed lower level area and wine cellar.  There is also private outdoor space.

A notable neighbor is Sandra Bullock, who owns an almost identical townhouse next door at 114 Sullivan (although only one story was added).  While Sandra doesn’t live in the townhouse full-time, friends in the neighborhood have rumored that Sandra lets friends stay at her house since it sits unoccupied most of the time.  {Vince Vaughn stayed there at one point while he was filming a movie in NYC}

114 Sullivan was purchased in 2000 by John Tru Chambleea lawyer from Austin, Texas, who has represented Bullock in other real estate transactions.  It was listed on Streeteasy as 4,144 square feet and purchased for $3.35M.  The townhouse is probably worth around $12M today so a great investment, indeed!

Would you pay $8,995 for a ground floor one-bedroom for the chance to live next to Sandra?  I would love to hear via Facebook, Twitter, or email me at Danielle@sohostrut.com.
