Director's Moody Manhattan House Is Back, Asking $12.5M

New, 1 comment

Last film director James Oakley's townhouse in Manhattan's West Village was on the market, it was available for $5.8 million. Now, three years later, the house is virtually unrecognizable having been completely redone by interior designer Fernando Santangelo, and and re-listed for $12.5 million. Oakley told T Magazine, in a recent profile, "I hate white, I despise it." To that end, he told Santangelo to cover every surface in the "muddy colors found in old master paintings," as the designer described it. Since it's always a fantastic idea to completely remodel a house to your highly personalized tastes and then immediately re-list it, this ought to work out great.
