Townhouse From The Squid and the Whale Listed for Sale

As first reported by Curbed NY, the brownstone that featured in the 2005 flick The Squid and the Whale has been listed for $3.45M. The Wall Street Journal takes a look at the property today: the film's writer/director Noah Baumbach found it a couple of years before the current owners bought the 1874 home and overgrown garden for $1.61M. These guys subsequently renovated it while keeping original details, such as weight-and-chain windows and mantelpieces, intact. Now the four-story townhouse has a kitchen with French doors, an arched entrance to the parlor floor, restored crown moldings, an Ipe-wood deck, and a living room bedecked in bright-pink paint. Have a look above. Overall, the result has created a downright cheery space—it's hard to believe this place ever set the stage for a movie about a family suffering through a divorce. Have a look above.
