Anne Hathaway is on the move again! After selling her Dumbo condo back in 2014, and then buying an Upper West Side pad in 2016, the Oscar winner is now selling that UWS penthouse. The 2-bedroom, 2-bath home at 18 West 74th Street has just hit the market for $3.495 million. The actress and her husband, Adam Shulman, purchased it for $2.55 million, so they stand to make a tidy profit on the sale.

Is Anne Hathaway Making Room for Baby No. 2?

The Brooklyn-born Hathaway welcomed a son, Jonathan, in March 2016. The 37-year-old announced via Instagram in July that she and Shulman were expecting their second child together. Though no official announcement has been made, the family — with an infant in tow — was spotted in a Connecticut park in December. Given that this home has only two bedrooms, it’s possible the Hathaway-Shulman clan needs more space to welcome their new bundle of joy.

See the Apartment

This home has come a long way since Hathaway purchased it four years ago. Gramercy Design oversaw a massive renovation, replicating original and period moldings while adding modern touches. All the windows are new, the floors are white oak in a herringbone pattern, and the kitchen features Lumix quartzite countertops, sleek hidden cabinetry, and high-end appliances from Miele.

The apartment’s common space is made for entertaining, boasting an open floor plan that flows out to an envy-inducing terrace with a sitting area and separate alfresco dining space. Back inside, the living room has a cozy ethanol fireplace, while the dining area features 18-foot ceilings with a skylight. All of this is accessed via a private key-locked elevator that opens to an elegant foyer.

And the views can’t be beat. The penthouse’s south-facing terrace overlooks the neighborhood’s most famed buildings, the Dakota and the San Remo (which is a celebrity hotbed itself!). Of course, that means it’s also just steps from Central Park.

About the Building

While Hathaway is certainly not the only celebrity who has called the Upper West Side home, she did choose a unique building. 18 West 74th Street, a historic Neo-Georgian structure, was one of the last private homes constructed in the neighborhood. Built in 1902, the five-story co-op features just five units, each one its own floor, and it still sports its original sweeping staircase and intimate elevator. The listing agent for this penthouse home is Jeremy Stein of Sotheby’s International Realty.
