Bob Weinstein Lists New York City Brownstone Townhouse

SELLERS: Bob Weinstein and Annie Clayton
LOCATION: New York City, NY
PRICE: $19,000,000
SIZE: 6,608 square feet, 4-5 bedrooms, 5 full and 3 half bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Several thoughtful helpers kindly sent word that mega-producer Bob Weinstein, founder and head of Dimension Films and co-founder and former co-chairman of Miramax Films, and his ex-wife, former book editor Annie Clayton, listed a carefully, comprehensively and, no doubt, expensively renovated brownstone townhouse on the Upper West Side of Manhattan with a $19 million price tag. Property records show the Weinsteins snapped up the five-story townhouse in May 2009 for $15 million. Floor plans included with current online marketing materials show the 6,608-square-foot townhouse, built in 1910 just half of a block off of Central Park and not lived in since its overhaul, has four and potentially five en suite bedrooms and a total of five full and three half bathrooms plus five gas fireplaces, an elevator that less than perfectly services only the lowest three floors, several small balconies, an L-shaped backyard, and a landscaped roof deck.

A raised stoop opens to the parlor floor entrance hall that features a carefully restored oak staircase with “intricately woven and carved wood spandrel.” The parlor floor also holds a street-facing eat-in kitchen with “furniture quality” cabinetry, a small-ish formal dining room clad in “period correct” wood paneling, and an expansive living room with a wood-paneled dado and fantastically extra-tall 10-pane French doors that lead to a petite terrace. Beyond the living room there’s a slender home office and powder room while downstairs, in the semi-subterranean garden level, there’s a recreation room with built-in stage, a family room that opens through French doors to the courtyard-sized backyard, and a laundry room that also opens out to the yard. A sitting room with wood trimmed bay window on the third floor is joined by a master suite replete with fireplace, Juliet balcony, bedroom-sized walk-in closet, and compartmentalized bathroom while three amply proportioned en suite guest/family bedrooms are located on the fourth and fifth floors. A potential fourth en suite guest/family bedroom on the fifth floor was unexpectedly and idiosyncratically converted to a pint-sized indoor basketball court with rustic knotty pine paneled walls

Property records show Mister Weinstein continues to own a six-bedroom and 7.5-bathroom, multi-unit combination duplex penthouse at the illustrious Beresford building on Central Park West that was acquired in the fall of 2004 for $20 million and floated as an off-market listing at $34 million before it was officially put on the open market in June 2009 at $29.75 million. Property records also show the prolific film and television producer, nominated for an Emmy 14 times as an executive producer of “Project Runway,” additionally owns a 2,914-square-foot condo in a prominent building on Astor Place in the East Village that he picked up in 2005 for $3 million.

    The Weinstein-Clayton home features a high-quality, thoughtful renovation and decidedly livable parlor floor; yet, its reworked contemporary plan is not to my personal favor. This brownstone is also priced similar to a comparably renovated, recently listed, and quickly sold townhouse at 43 W. 73rd Street, where I once was ensconced on the third floor. Notwithstanding competitive pricing, as an east coast ex-pat I’ve ceased issuing predictions concerning possibly expeditious real estate sales in New York!

    The property will sell rapidly. Why do you always start every post now crediting someone else for the information Mark?
