After nearly 25 years, the legendary star of stage and screen Nathan Lane is finally letting go of his stylish condo in Lower Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood. It’s available for $4.65 million, the Wall Street Journal reported.
The star’s show-stopping spread is located in the Romanesque Revival warehouse known as Merchant’s House, originally built in 1891 for the Merchants’ Refrigerating Company. Lane purchased the 2,757-square-foot pad in 1997 for $916,500, and then hired the renowned designer William Sofield to have his way with it. And that he did, adding elegant details that make Lane’s home a true standout.
You’ll find an example of Sofield’s consummately tasteful eye for detail in the remarkable, Arts and Crafts style, wood-burning fireplace, with a custom, handcrafted stone surround and brick hearth.
The fireplace is located in the great room on the main, entry floor of the three-level condo. The great room also features a dining area, an office area, a beautiful modern kitchen, and a cozy home entertainment alcove with a bar. There are soaring 15-foot ceilings over this level, uncommon in New York apartments. Currently, listing photos show the walls adorned with the performer’s memorabilia.
Up the grand staircase with its unique banisters like theater ropes, there’s a sizable master suite, with an equally spacious bathroom that includes a steam shower.
There’s a bonus room on the lowest level that could be used as a second bedroom, a game/media room, or an office-type workspace.
Storage space is often an issue in New York units, but not in this one. There are plenty of built-in cabinets, shelves, and other accommodations in the condo itself, and also a 5-foot-by-10-foot storage unit in the basement.

Located on Tribeca’s popular “Gold Coast,” in the Historic District, Lane’s condo is part of a four-building, pet-friendly condominium complex with a virtual doorman system and video intercom entry, so you can see who’s coming up to your flat, and not have to tip the doorman.
The building is surrounded by Tribeca’s world-famous shopping, dining, and nightlife, as well as charming parks including the Hudson River Park, just a few blocks away. It’s hard to imagine a more convenient living space in all Manhattan.
The Broadway fixture, who is 65, has garnered three Tonys for his performances in “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” “The Producers,” and “Angels in America.” He’s also known for his big-screen work in movie versions of “The Birdcage, “The Producers,” “Mouse Hunt,” and “Guys and Dolls,”
His work on the small screen includes roles in such popular series as “Frasier,” “Modern Family,” and “The Good Wife.” He received critical acclaim for his role as F. Lee Bailey in the limited series “The People v. O.J. Simpson.”
