The Post has learned that Robert De Niro’s nearly 37-year-old former New York City home has sold for $11.98 million.
Records show that the four-bedroom, four-bathroom West Village property was owned by the legendary actor from 1975 until 2012, when he sold it for $9.5 million.
Initially listed in 2019 for $22.75 million, the home saw a huge drop in prices before finding a buyer last month.
It was also rented briefly in 2018 for $45,000 per month.
The Italianate-style residence, built in 1852, features views of James J. Walker Park. The house has four floors and a basement, and has been restored and renovated over the past three years, according to the listing.
Features include a chef’s dining kitchen with a marble-topped central island and six-burner stove, a lounge area overlooking the backyard and garden, a mudroom, and a formal dining room with fireplace and 12-foot ceilings.
The master suite leads to an outside balcony.
Most residential homes have struggled with the market over the past decade. Take, for example, “Real Housewives of New York” star Sonya Morgan, who has been trying to sell her Upper East Side home since 2013.
De Niro, 78, has his primary residence in Gardiner, New York, which sits on 98 acres of land. When he bought the property at the time, in 1998, it cost him just $1.5 million.
He also owns a house in Montauk.
De Niro has since rented a few other Manhattan platforms, but in 2012 – the same year his long-time townhouse was listed – he reportedly bought His first home is in London.
The actor was in the midst of a controversial divorce battle with his wife Separated wife, Grace Hightower. The two married in 1997. Last summer, at the height of the pandemic, De Niro’s attorney, Caroline Krause, revealed in a court hearing via Skype that he would live in his upstate New York home in order to “The foreseeable future.”
“He intends to reside in Gardiner for the foreseeable future,” Krause said of De Niro — who grew up in Manhattan and has deep roots in the city. “It’s after all 76 people and in the category of people for whom COVID-19 poses a risk.”
Last week, judge Hightower request denied He is entitled to half of what he earns.
Hightower argued that the 2004 prenuptial agreement she made with the “The Irishman” star gave her half of his earnings when they were together — claiming it was marital assets to be divided equally.
But the Appeals Chamber dismissed Hightower’s arguments, and upheld a lower court’s ruling in February.
