Actress Brooke Shields reportedly has gone to contract to buy a Greek Revival-style town house in Manhattan’s West Village that has been on the market for $5,600,000.  The New York Post’s fine celebrity real estate columnist Braden Keil today broke the story of Shields apparently having gone to contract to purchase the four-story brick town house, which is at 226 W. 10th Street in Manhattan. Currently configured as a four-apartment, 18-room building (with four kitchens), the town house was built in 1905 and measures 3,314 square feet, according to public records. Other features in the town house include eight wood-burning fireplaces, five and a half baths, and original wide-plank floors, mantels and moldings, according to listing information. Outside is a south-facing, 800-square-foot garden, Keil reported. b-ii.jpgb-iii.jpgb-iv.jpgb-v.jpg The current owner of the town house is a development company called 226 West 10th Street LLC, according to public records. The seller had paid $3,775,000 in late 2006 for the property. Check out an online listing sheet for the unit – complete with photos – here. Where does Shields currently live? Keil reported that she lives in downtown Manhattan, and indeed, records show that she appears to own a co-op unit in the SoHo area, at 458 Broadway. Also, Shields’ Darla Trust (also known as Darla Family Trust) owns a 5,345-square-foot house at 1710 San Remo Drive in Los Angeles’ Pacific Palisades area.
