The Music Man is making moves: Actor Hugh Jackman has listed his longtime West Village apartment for approx. $54.7 million. The Australian-born “X-Men” and “Les Miserables” actor, 53, and wife Deborra-Lee Furness, 66, purchased the five-bedroom triplex for $29.5 million in 2008, according to records.

“They’ve been there for over 14 years, and they love the apartment and the building, but felt at this point they needed something new,” said Corcoran’s Deborah Grubman, who is representing the listing along with David Adler and Paul Albano, also of Corcoran. “They’re committed New Yorkers, and they will not just be staying in New York City, but will be staying in the immediate area.” (Mr. Jackman is currently starring alongside Sutton Foster in a Broadway revival of “The Music Man.”)

Located in boutique condo building Meier South Tower, the 11,000-square-foot home occupies the eighth, ninth and 10th floors of the building, and is the only individual apartment to have also been designed by the building’s architect, Richard Meier, Ms. Grubman told Mansion Global.

The apartment is designed with wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Hudson River, with views maximized by an enormous double-height great room, per listing photos.

“The apartment obviously has huge square footage, but also a huge volume of space because you have the double height living room,” Ms. Grubman said. “When you walk into that entertainment floor, it’s just a wow, with floor-to-ceiling glass. Having the [unit] facing west means those views are of the Statue of Liberty, the boats, remarkable sunsets.

“It’s really kind of a postcard for New York,” Ms. Grubman added.

Four bedrooms with en-suite baths are located on the eighth floor along with a recreation room, a library/guest bedroom, and a terrace overlooking the Hudson River, according to the listing. The great room, which includes a fireplace and space for a large dining area, is located on the ninth floor, as is a home office area and a professional gourmet kitchen with marble counters, breakfast bar seating and wall-to-wall views.

The 10th floor is configured as a primary bedroom suite, which includes a studio or exercise area, as well as a bathroom with dual sinks and a soaking tub with views of the river. The home centers around a sleek white spiral staircase that connects each floor.

Amenities in the building include a fitness centre, full-time doorman and concierge, as well as Jean-George Vongerichten’s Perry Street Restaurant.

“It’s a boutique building, not too big, very congenial and quite intimate,” Ms. Grubman said. “It’s incredibly well-staffed and well run. [Mr. Jackman and Ms. Furness] have absolutely loved and enjoyed the apartment, and raised two children here.”

The listing came on the market on Monday, according to records. Mr. Jackman was not immediately available for comment.

The ball is in the buyer’s court with this knockdown/rebuild opportunity

Glenhaven in Sydney’s Hills District is one of those areas that locals tend to keep to themselves. Leafy with large blocks on offer, the suburb takes its name from its valley location, with the northern end originally known as the Glen and the southern end called the Haven. 

En route from Parramatta to the Hunter, Glenhaven has become an ideal place for growing families in search of a little more space, or even room to house several generations under one roof.

The challenge is finding properties that tick all the right boxes.

As demand for trades and supply chain issues continue to ease, now could be the right time for a knockdown/rebuild project for would-be buyers looking to create their dream home.

Fairmont Homes specialises in knockdown/rebuild projects in Sydney. General manager at Fairmont Homes, Daniel Logue, said there are key features to look for when choosing a knockdown/rebuild site.

“The key items we look for are the site falling to the street, not to the rear, to help with stormwater drainage as well as access to the site,” he said. “Neighbouring property front setbacks are also important. In some older areas, the older houses are set closer to the street, meaning your new home will have to be set to suit.

“Value for money and the return on the end sale price of the home is another issue.”

If possible, he said designing a home that meets the criteria of the Complying Development legislation will speed up approvals considerably.

While suitable knockdown/rebuild sites can be hard to find in Glenhaven, there are still hidden opportunities if you know where to look.

One block at 158 Gilbert Road, Glenhaven is ideally suited for rejuvenation. With almost 850sqm to play with, it slopes down to the street and sits between neighbouring properties that have already been stylishly updated.

 

 

An existing basketball court at the rear could provide the perfect teen backdrop to a family home, or it could make way for a larger house with landscaped gardens and pool. Alternatively, it could be the perfect position for a cabana or granny flat to serve as in-law accommodation or a source of secondary income.

With recent sales of completed homes in nearby streets reaching well above $5 million, it’s a great opportunity to make a slam dunk of a buy into one of Sydney’s best kept secrets.
