Calling all Margot Tenenbaum wannabes! It's time to dust off your fur coat, wooden finger, and secret pack of cigarettes and make an offer to rent the iconic home featured in The Royal Tenenbaums.
Made famous by its starring role in Wes Anderson's 2001 cult-favorite film, the Hamilton Heights mansion, set on the fictional Archer Avenue in the movie, is on the market for the first time since 1999.
In real life, it stands on the corner of Convent Avenue uptown and its actual history is just as fascinating as the family that inhabited it on screen. Spanning 6,000 square feet, the Flemish Revival townhouse was built in 1899 by the notable Jacob D. Butler, and it was once the home of U.S. attorney Charles H. Tuttle, who ran in the city's governor race against Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Much of the home's original architectural details are intact, including stained glass windows, ornate woodwork, and six fireplaces, giving the interiors a suitable degree of Wes Anderson-approved charm. Other rooms, like the kitchen and bathrooms, have been given sleek and modern updates that, honestly, we could probably live with.
The place is officially available to rent, fully-furnished, for $20,000 a month.
