Here is a peek inside the New York City Upper East Side home reported to be owned by filmmaker/director Spike Lee that is currently on the market for $32 million dollars.
The home located at 153 E. 63rd and it is known as the Hatch House...constructed from stables back in the early 1900s. The home was gifted to the first owners by the Vanderbilt family and famed burlesque dancer Gypsy Lee Rose is said to have owned it for 3 decades. Spike Lee bought it in the 1990's for $16 million and is now selling it for twice as much.
The 8200+ square foot home is made up of two buildings surrounding a courtyard. It features 5 bedrooms, 8 baths, staff quarters and a gym.
This property is listed by Sotheby's Serena Boardman.
It has been reported that the home was owned by famed modern artist Jasper Johns too! Lots of famous names it seems have lived under this roof.
What do you think? Would you take it or leave it? I like the house. Love the arched windows and the long walkways connecting the two buildings. I also love the idea of having my own private courtyard right in the middle of New York City. I'd take it!
