Academy Award nominee Hugh Jackman is selling his home in Manhattan. The West Village condo has been owned by the Australian actor for over a decade.
For Jackman, a two-time Tony Award-winning thespian who has spent a significant chunk of his career on Broadway, the high-rise triplex residence has been a primary home, not just a pied-a-terre, and it’s clear the artist has invested much personally in the home. The property is priced accordingly, at $38.9 million.
The building’s address is a distinguished one, and other celebrities who have called it a home — or a home away from home — include actor Nicole Kidman. It was designed by modernist architect Richard Meier. Followers of West Coast real estate may recall the Meier-designed Malibu home of art collector and billionaire Eli Broad, which appeared for sale in 2020, and Meier’s six-bedroom, 18,500 sq. ft. modern villa in Beverly Hills, which David Geffen acquired for $68 million that same year.
The West Village building housing Jackman’s upper-floor home was completed in 2001. Nestled between the Hudson and the city, the building is situated for unusually fine and varied views, and Jackman’s unit, which concludes on the 10th floor of the building, gets the best of them.
The residence’s overall style follows through from the building; glassy and more than a little ethereal, its white interiors would give Melville’s Ishmael the willies. Strikingly beautiful, the home’s highlights include the sculptural corkscrew staircase that commands the eye like a particularly effective art installation, and the fire feature accent wall that helps give definition to the office on the middle level.
The home’s master suite occupies the entire top floor of the triplex.
Jackman’s upcoming films include The Son, with Laura Dern and Anthony Hopkins.
