This is an old post and this property has been sold. M. Night Shyamalan does not live here any more...
Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan has listed his seven-bedroom mansion in Gladwyne, Pa. for $7,999,000.
Shyamalan, 36, is selling the 22-room, 12,970-square-foot mansion at 1500 Monk Road in Gladwyne, which is a suburb of Philadelphia. He purchased the mansion new in 2000, paying $4,516,819 to buy the house and 1.93-acre property, according to public records.
Features in the four-level mansion in Gladwyne that Shyamalan is selling include nine full baths, two partial baths, Brazilian Cherry custom hardwood floors, crown moldings and chair rails and baseboard trims, according to listing information. Other features include Pella's Architect-series windows, Kountry Kraft cabinetry, recessed lighting, gathering areas on each level, a designer gourmet kitchen and breakfast room, a home theater, a billiard room, a fitness room, a library, two office spaces, a dedicated playroom and a four-car garage, according to listing information. Outside are lush grassy areas, a secluded English garden oasis, several flagstone terraces, a heated pool, a spa and a 20-foot slate waterfall, according to listing information.
Shyamalan's mansion is in something of a celebrity neighborhood, given that it's literally next door to the 8,141-square-foot, former home of NBA star Allen Iverson. Iverson had purchased that house, which sits on a 1.91-acre parcel at 1432 Monk Road in Gladwyne, in 2000 for $2,400,000, and he sold it in April 2006 for $2,850,000, according to public records. Iverson famously kicked his wife Tawanna out of the Monk Road house in 2002 during a fight, and later went looking for his wife at his cousin's apartment. Iverson subsequently was arrested on charges related to the incident, but charges later were dropped.
