It took seven years, a major renovation, and multiple price chops, but interior design duo Cortney and Robert Novogratz finally sold their West Village townhouse for $14.5 million.

The Novogratzs bought the 1,935-square-foot space at 400 West Street for $4.3 million in 2007 and after extensive renovations transformed it into 7,180-square-foot home. It hit the market in 2009 at an asking price of $25 million.

It took several brokers and price points, the last one at $15.95 million, before an overseas buyer closed on the townhouse for $14.5 million, the New York Post reported.

Town Residential’s Steven Gold was the listing broker.

The stars of HGTV decor reality show “Home by Novogratz,” installed a new elevator at the five-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathrooms townhouse that also has 1,900 square feet of private outdoor space.

The townhouse was also the former home of both Julia Roberts and Heidi Klum.  [NYP]Dusica Sue Malesevic
