Oprah’s favorite interior designers, Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent, are on the move again. Last fall, the restless stars of TLC’s Nate & Jeremiah by Design listed their historic Hancock Park estate in Los Angeles for $13.8 million. Now they’re unloading their one-bedroom Manhattan apartment for $800,000.
The sunny 12th Street apartment is nestled inside a 10-unit, 19th century co-op brownstone in the heart of Greenwich Village, near Washington Square Park, Union Square Park and lower Fifth Avenue.
The high-end apartment retains its authentic prewar Village charm featuring the preserved original marble fireplace, 11-foot-4-inch ceilings, shutters and oversized south-facing windows. However, interiors offer a contemporary vibe. There’s also functional micro kitchen, built-in storage and laundry in the classic building, which is centrally located in a neighborhood where creatives, celebrities, savvy tourists and New York University students intermingle.
“We used the space as multi-functional—for living, dining and working,” says Nate. “We kept the interior simple so the space felt like a relaxing and tranquil refuge from the bustling city.”
The eventual buyer can opt for more than mere reality star digs. For an additional cost, they can receive the star treatment as well—with staged décor included. Styled by the dynamic duo, the apartment is a potential dream starter home, curated with a mix of vintage pieces and furnishings from Nate and Jeremiah’s personal collection. So yes, the home has some TLC.
The apartment is ideal for “a buyer who appreciates design, classic details and the perfect Greenwich Village location,” says CORE broker Emily Beare, who has the listing. “Having the option to buy furnished will further draw in someone who is design-forward.”
Attracted to the brownstone neighborhood, Nate and Jeremiah purchased the apartment in 2014, the same year they married. As their fame, incomes and careers soar, it seems they’ve upgraded for more space elsewhere in Manhattan. After all, they’re now the proud parents of two kids (Poppy and Oskar) who are often featured on their TV show.
“We no longer need the apartment as we now live elsewhere full-time in New York City,” says Jeremiah. “We had used it as a place to stay while we lived out of state.” That state was California. But this apartment is bonafide New York. An open house scheduled for Sunday, September 8th.
