The Tonight Show host, Jimmy Fallon, and his wife Nancy Juvonen are looking to offload their New York triplex for $15 million. According to Architectural Digest, “Fallon initially purchased one of the units for $850,000 in 2002, several years before marrying Juvonen, in 2007, and the pair have spent the ensuing decades expanding into three neighboring apartments. The home now spans 4,950 square feet, with six bedrooms and five bathrooms.” Built in 1883 this Queen Anne style 9-storey red brick building is one of the earliest and most sought after cooperatives in New York City and is renowned for its beautiful lobby with Tiffany glass ceiling, Grueby and Minton tiles, and original fireplace, hearth, and mantle mirror. Fallon’s home features original, restored window frames and casings throughout, original, restored hardwood floors throughout, and the highest quality fixtures and finishes combined with a curated collection of treasured vintage and antique finds from around the world.
Enter this imaginative space via the seventh floor and into a gracious entry foyer. Off the entry is an elegantly proportioned living room, papered in rare vintage wallpaper from the 1940s and panelled in skewed wood-planking designed by Bednark. A plush custom sofa and in-ceiling projector make this room the perfect place for casual gatherings. Move into the west-facing eat-in kitchen, the heart of the home, which has awe-inspiring views over Gramercy Park, featuring state-of-the-heart home appliances, and custom cabinetry with E.R. Butler hardware. The room offers comfortable dining for six and bar seating for eight beside a gas fireplace with an original mantel set with vintage tiles. Adjacent to the kitchen is a show-stopping walk-in pantry that once functioned as a working sound studio (and is still fully soundproofed). Along with the living room and kitchen, two spacious bedrooms with two full baths, a home office, and a laundry room complete the seventh floor. A beautifully custom-crafted staircase unites the home’s three floors and is adorned by a whimsical mural. Below the staircase is a children’s dream: a hidden playroom equipped with monkey bars, secret hatch doors, a chalkboard wall, and a “jailhouse intercom” to the upstairs playroom.
The “piece de resistance,” of the home’s eighth floor is the west-facing “Saloon Room.” This spectacular entertaining space features a vintage bar-back with custom inlaid stained glass and is complemented by a custom-designed fully equipped wet bar and a gas fireplace with stone hearth. Also on the eighth floor are two additional bedrooms (one currently used as a home gym) and a full bath. Ascending to the ninth floor, the highest floor of the building, you will find the primary suite and the private wing of the home. The primary suite is a zen and peaceful retreat, bathed in light from newly installed skylights. Features of the primary suite include a gas fireplace, wet bar with refrigerator, custom built-in massage bed, and a cozy seating area designed to evoke the inside of a hull of a tree. Two fully outfitted walk-in closets and a bath with his and her vanities, a steam shower, and an entirely separate room with a soaking tub complete the primary suite. The ninth floor also features two spacious bedrooms, another full bath, a second playroom, and a second laundry room – completing this unparalleled and unique offering. Fallon’s one-of-a-kind home is on the market for $15 million with Jeremy V. Stein and Debbie Korb of Sotheby’s International Realty.
