Peter Jackson is parting with two penthouse condominiums, and they’re not in Middle-Earth or even Midtown, but rather Tribeca. The filmmaker behind “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy and “The Hobbit” has listed his two apartments at 155 Franklin Street for $21.5 million, Curbed reported.
He bought them in 2008 for $17.35 million, with his executive assistant and two lawyers listed on the deed.
In the listing, Lara Nangle of the Corcoran Group urged the prospective buyer to do what Jackson never did: combine both units into a duplex with a private multi-level wraparound roof deck. If combined, the result would be a 6,100-square-foot five-bedroom, five-bathroom duplex with a 4,000-square-foot private outdoor space and 1,900-square-foot two-bedroom, three-bathroom guest apartment with a separate entrance. There is also a “generous” walk-in closet in the master bedroom, the listing said.
The current owners invested in a new roof system, parapet repair and a new HVAC system, the listing said. [Curbed] – Mark Maurer
