Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick are reportedly looking for a buyer for their $19 million townhouse in the West Village.

The Charles Street property, which the celebrity couple purchased in 2000 for $2.99 million, is being shopped through a whisper listing, the New York Post reports. No marketing materials are publicly available.

In 2016 the actors bought two townhouses at 273 and 275 West 11th St, which they have been working on combining into one megamansion. In the interim, they’ve been living at the Charles Street property with their son, James, and twin daughters, Marion and Tabitha.

Whisper listings, an opaque corner of the luxury real estate market, have proliferated in recent years, offering sellers privacy and a chance to test the market before publicly listing a property.

Last month The Real Deal reported that an off-market listing for an Upper East Side townhouse owned by antiques dealer Carlton Hobbs was abruptly pulled off the market after the Wall Street Journal reported it was for sale.

The Real Estate Board of New York has made efforts to tighten its rules for whisper listings. Its 2019 universal co-brokerage agreement stated that no broker “shall promote or encourage” owners to list their properties off-market. In November the National Association of Realtors also approved a policy to cut down on whisper listings. [NYP] — Sylvia Varnham O’Regan
