Josh Hartnett Slashed Price on Downtown Manhattan Penthouse Loft (EXCLUSIVE)

New York City, N.Y.
$3.8 million
(approx.) 1,965 square feet, 1 bedroom, 2 bathrooms

“Penny Dreadful” star Josh Hartnett, currently on the silver screen in the “remarkably unexciting” fact-based survival drama “6 Below: Miracle on the Mountain,” slashed the asking price of his loft-style penthouse pied-à-terre in lower Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood to $3.8 million. The current price is not quite 10% below the too-confident original price of $4.25 million but still considerably above the $2.4 million he paid for the approximately 1,965-square-foot urban aerie in 2004.

The sunny, south- and west-facing loft, an trapezoidal-shaped open-concept space that extends to 54-feet-long with hardwood floors, high ceilings, a snazzy custom lighting system and heavy-duty maintenance fees of $5,033 per month, is lined along two walls with ten four-pane sash windows set into a white-painted exposed brick wall and fitted with electronic shades. A floating built-in cabinet runs the full length of the walls underneath the windows and other custom built-ins provide loads of additional storage as well as conceal the refrigerator, a stackable washer/dryer and the air-conditioning equipment. The smaller of the two bathrooms is just off the kitchen and the larger offers a double-sink vanity, soaking tub and glass-enclosed steam shower with built-in bench. A large skylight over the top-of-the-line kitchen floods the inner section of the loft with natural light, a slightly elevated platform just inside the front door serves as the bedroom — there’s a windowed dressing area and fitted walk-in closet tucked up behind that — and a corkscrew staircase winds up to an approximately 940-square-foot terrace with wrap-around city and skyline views.

The 25-unit, boutique building, built in 1915 and converted to a co-operative in the late 1970s, overlooks Bogardus Gardens and provides residents with a video intercom entry system, a full-time super, a bike storage area, a landscaped roof terrace and both passenger and freight elevators.

Hartnett stepped away from glare of the Hollywood spotlight in the years after his spectacular rise to fame and international heartthrob stature in the late 1990s and early 2000s with blockbuster films like “Pearl Harbor” and “Black Hawk Down” and returned to his native Minneapolis, Minn., where in 2002 he paid $2.395 million for an dignified 11-room Victorian in the upscale Lake of the Isles neighborhood that he sold at a loss in 2015 for $2.3 million. Last year he was reported to be searching with his longtime girlfriend, British actress Tamsin Egerton, for a family-sized home in North London’s Hampstead area with a budget of around $5.2 million and two typically unimpeachable tattletales swear that in late 2016 he covertly shelled out $4.65 million in an off-market deal for a 1920s residence and guest house in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles.
