Louis CK lists his ten-year-old New York townhouse for $8.5 million


Comedian Louis CK is saying goodbye to his longtime New York townhouse after being downsized to a $3.85 million apartment in Greenwich Village, The Post has learned.

Located at 35 Charlton St. in Soho, the comedian, born Louis Székely, bought the three-story, five-bedroom home in 2012 for $6.5 million, records show. The property is now on the market for $8.5 million.

Described as a “rare opportunity to own a piece of history,” the townhouse is part of the longest row of Federal and Greek Revival buildings developed by John Jacob Astor, the listing notes.

Built in 1829, the house spans 4,800 square feet and has 13 rooms in total.

Details include a second-floor terrace, private courtyard, and neighborhood views.

“There are endless value-added opportunities, either as a sprawling single-family home with a separate rental apartment below, or as a completely private residence,” the listing adds.

Carl Gambino and Justin Montero of Compass hold the list.

Meanwhile, The Post reported this week that Louis CK purchased a unit on the eighth floor of the famed downtown Art Deco building, One Fifth Ave.

Comprised of four bedrooms and three bathrooms, this co-op is a two corner unit combo that was available for the first time in nearly 40 years.

Additionally, the comedian, who admitted to sexual misconduct in 2017, is also unloading a third downtown home. It originally hit the market for $2.5 million earlier this year and has since received a $600,000 price cut after it was unable to find a buyer.

If he sells this house on demand, he will lose a large sum of money. Louis CK originally bought this two-bedroom, two-bathroom Greenwich Village pad for $2.45 million in 2014, according to

He also owns a Tudor cottage on 2 acres facing the bay east of Shelter Island.

Despite the controversy surrounding the 55-year-old, he won a Grammy in April for Best Comedy Album.
