Located on the fourth floor at unit 4D at Pickwick House, 35 Bethune Street, New York City, the 1,100-square-foot luxury pad includes two bedrooms and two new stylish state-of-the-art spa bathrooms (featuring heated towel racks and heated floors and 6-ft marble tubs), a living room in the corner of the building with wood-burning fireplace and strip oak flooring, a gourmet kitchen with large marble counter and eat-in area, two ample bedrooms with two extra-large windows and customized closets. The apartment is light-flooded throughout and is “all set amongst trees with views of sky,” according to the listing, which also mentions that “it feels like living in the country, in the most exciting part of the city.”

Built in the late 19th century, the 6-story, 21-unit brick building was originally a printing factory and a century, after being ravaged by a fire, was converted into a condominium and gut-renovated with construction materials like limestone, glass and jade tiles, heated flooring and Calcatta marble while keeping the original 10-ft wood-beamed ceilings. Highlights also include hardwood flooring and brick wood-burning fireplace. The rent price of the pad is $500 more than what the actor himself.
