Guess who was home-hunting this past Sunday? Jake Gyllenhaal!
The “Prince of Persia” actor was spotted taking a look at a townhouse in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City.
The New York Post first reported seeing the actor at an open house for the $3.75 million townhouse at 37 Harrison Street.
Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon of Core Group Marketing are representing the four-level landmarked home.
Floor plans of the residence show that the entrance of the house opens into the main level’s large living plus dining room. There is an eat-in kitchen on the level and a backyard garden too.
The upper level of the house is accessed through a flight of staircase. The level has two bedrooms with huge walk-in closets. The master suite takes up the entire top floor of the townhouse.
There is a basement level below the main floor that offers ample storage space. It can be used as an office too.
Interiors of the home feature tiled and hardwood flooring, French windows and wooden doors along with drywall and beamed ceilings.
The listing describes the place as, “architecturally rich and rare house at 37 Harrison Street (originally 327 Washington Street) retains a remarkable abundance of its original detail.”
The listing also notes the home’s rich history.
“Built in 1828 and landmarked in 1969, the Wilson Hunt House is one of a group of nine Federal houses whose scale and profile exist nowhere else in New York City. Located on a site that was once the well-known farm of Annetje Jans, to whom it was granted in 1636 by Dutch Director General, Van Twiller, the area surrounding the house has evolved a bit over the last several centuries.”

According to Curbed, Gyllenhaal has been on the prowl for a new house for about five months now. The “Source Code” actor was spotted taking a look at another penthouse on 65 Thompson Street in West Village sometime in December last year. The home was listed for $3.5 million and the website speculates that Gyllenhaal’s budget maybe something in the range of $3.5 million to $4 million.
Gyllenhaal was spotted sporting a bearded and ponytailed look at the open house. That is his get-up for his upcoming flick “Southpaw,” which will be shot in Pittsburgh. The actor has already shot in the area while filming “Love and other Drugs.”
