While not particularly well known in the UK, husband and wife team Taran Killam and Cobie Smulders are extremely popular TV stars in the US and therefore any movement in their real estate portfolio tends to hit the headlines. Cobie Smulders, the star of “How I Met Your Mother” and Taran Killam, star of “Hamilton”, appear to be moving on with the sale of their property at 2 River Terrace in Battery Park City. So, what kind of value for money should you expect for your $4 million?
Inside the Battery Park City apartment
The condo style property offers 1580 ft.² were extremely large ceilings at 10 feet high and some exquisite views of the area. The home has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and also boasts a private 650 ft.² landscaped terrace. The property is also adorned with bamboo floors and is certainly something different to your normal condo style property.
If you take a look at the living area it is very spacious, filled with modern furniture and also highlights the wooden floor theme. The property on the whole is open plan which maximises the space available and also ensures there is more than enough natural light. If we then move into the kitchen, again there is a heavy wood theme which hides many of the mod cons you would expect in the modern day kitchen. Like so many celebrity properties there is also the kitchen “island” around which there is more than enough space to prepare and cook your meals.
The bedrooms are very different and this is obviously a family property with an excellent bedroom for a child. At this moment in time the child bedroom is adorned with dolls, some rather eye-catching wallpaper not to mention an extended single bed. This really is something different and while not to everybody’s taste it does highlight the family nature of the property. The master bedroom offers a little more in the way of a toned down decor with an array of neutral colours and a very large window offering views over the World Trade Centre and Hudson River.
What price did Cobie Smulders and Taran Killam pay for the property?
Records suggest that the property was acquired for $2 million back in 2011 therefore a $4 million asking price would crystallise a significant gain. In reality Cobie Smulders and Taran Killam should have no difficulty shifting this property although it is interesting to learn that they recently sold one of their other real estate assets in California for $1.4 million. Do they believe the US property market will weaken under Donald Trump or are they simply cashing in their assets to buy a larger property?
In will be interesting to see whether this property moves fairly quickly or like many celebrity properties we have covered of late is left hanging on the market. To be honest this particular property is well-positioned, offer some very eye-catching views and the open plan nature of the home itself will be to the liking of many potential buyers.
