This Fictional Fashion Editor’s Upper East Side Townhouse Is for Sale

May 10, 2023 at 8:52 PM PST

If you enjoy daydreaming about luxury homes, you are going to love this listing. As reported by Curbed, fictional fashion editor Miranda Priestly’s Upper East Side townhouse is now up for sale at $27.5 million. Miranda Priestly is the name of the cold-hearted but fashionable character from the iconic movie The Devil Wears Prada.

Actress Meryl Streep brought to life what many viewers and fans thought Vogue’s editor Anna Wintour to be. In the movie, an unforgettable scene takes place where Miranda orders Andrea to “deliver the book” to her impeccable townhouse. Of course, Andrea doesn’t follow directions as instructed. Miranda eventually catches Andrea going down her elegant stairs as she’s talking to her husband.

Located at 129 East 73rd St. between Park and Lex, this townhouse is five stories with an impressive seven bedrooms and a full basement. It also comes with a garden and a private mini-basketball court on the roof. (All of this could be yours for just $27.5 million!) Adam D. Modlin of the Modlin Group will be handling the Miranda Priestly townhouse sale.

The public records show that the 12,000-square-foot townhouse last sold in 2003 for $8.8 million. Since then, the occupants have not altered much of the home since it was in the film.

The townhouse was built in 1906 by an architect named Stanford White. In 2005, it was renovated by Diamona Barratta who kept a lot of the original details, according to Architectural Digest. The location has double front doors and a second-floor terrace with additional French doors and a loggia.

It’s safe to say that Miranda Priestly’s home is still impressive after all these years.
