Miranda Priestly’s New York City Townhouse Is Listed For $27.5 Million

The real Upper East Side townhouse from the film ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ is now up for sale.

When The Devil Wears Prada came out in 2006, the Academy gave Meryl Streep a Best Actress nomination for her depiction of the mercurial Miranda Priestly.

17 years later, the film has cemented its place in pop culture history, with Priestly’s quotes living in our heads rent-free.

In the movie, Andrea Sachs (portrayed by Anne Hathaway), had to deliver “The Book” to Priestly’s address. This “book” is actually a mock-up of the latest Runway issue.

As reported by Curbed, the townhouse hit the market for $27.5 million listed by Adam D. Modlin of the Modlin Group. According to reports, the 12,000-square-foot home was last sold in 2003 for $8.8 million.

Judging from the previews of the interior, it seems that the owners haven’t changed much since the townhouse was featured in the film.

The Interior

When Hathaway’s character enters the home, the scene shows the foyer and corridor with a powder room and two coat closets. Even the art on the walls and the blue carpet on the winding staircase seen in the film remain.

The limestone masterpiece of a home, designed in 1906 by architect Stanford White, features seven bedrooms, two kitchens, and 10 bathrooms spread across six stories.

While much of the original architecture is intact, the owners have added modern amenities such as a gym, a library, a custom half-basketball court on the roof, plus a Jacuzzi. The formal gallery features a marble fireplace and Murano chandelier.

The kitchen on the first floor has a massive island and black-and-white checked marble floors. The additional service kitchen boasts a second set of full-sized premium appliances.

The home is certainly built for a queen. Or, at least, the very important editor of an esteemed publication.
