When sh’e not in the Middle East hunting down terrorists on Homeland, Claire Danes was right at home in the relatively safe West Village. She and her husband Hugh Dancy purchased a four-story 4BR/4.5BA West Village townhouse for $6.876 million. The four story Greek revival townhouse built in the 1880’s. The parlor floor is a grand open room with 12 foot ceilings and is the heart of the house. There are 4-5 bedrooms, 4 baths, unusually high ceilings, wonderful mantles, antique floor boards, and tin ceilings throughout the house. In addition there is outdoor space on 3 levels, a courtyard, a terrace off the library and a roof garden with charming Village roof top views.
She sold her Soho loft for $5.85 million. Located at 42 Wooster Street, it has three bedrooms and three bathrooms underneath 11-foot ceilings. Other amenities include a wood-burning fireplace and a rotating breakfast bar.
