The former secure at 23 Cornelia Road was constructed in 1912 and landmarked in 2010, but did it actually even exist till 2016, when it was briefly occupied by Taylor Swift (whilst her $50 million Tribeca loft underwent renovations)? Considering that being canonized on her 2019 album, Lover, the 5,500-sq.-foot West Village carriage property is now permanently bonded with Ms. Midnights. And while it’s poised to rent as a personal home setting up in the New Yr (for a fair $45,000 a thirty day period), the constructing had a significant 2022 as the New York residence base of a luxe Italian home furniture brand and an celebration space for hire. It turns out the put exactly where Swift allegedly cemented her connection with actor Joe Alwyn (following reportedly conference at the 2016 Met Gala) is also a terrific area to promote pasta and wine and celebrate Katie Holmes. What follows is a recap of all the brands,celeb sponsors, and “experiences” that, at minimum for a night time, acquired to “rent a place on Cornelia Avenue.”
It was a tranquil winter on Cornelia Avenue. The home, no lengthier Taylor’s edition, served as a foundation of operations for Italian household furniture manufacturer Zanotta, and most of the press about the handle was linked to admirer pilgrimages (such as a dachshund-centric ode in the early months of the calendar year).
Clover bloomed in the fields, spring broke loose, and “Page Six” revealed an special: “Katie Holmes dines at Taylor Swift’s aged Cornelia Road carriage house.” The Italian wine model Santa Margherita rented the space to start a new rosé (distinctly not your roommate’s cheap-ass screw-major), and Holmes was the guest of honor! In accordance to “Page Six,” she was “talking about how she loved that it was Taylor Swift’s house.” I enjoy that, much too. (If you are a savvy Gaylor truther wanting for clues in this report, the greatest we could come across was that the two attended the 2019 launch celebration of an Amazon x Refinery29 holiday pop-up.)
The summer season welcomed a different launch bash to 23 Cornelia: QNY Imaginative promised a evening of “signature classics from Pasta Garalfo” and vegan focaccia (certain!) from Bindi Desserts inside the “Greenwich Village 5-storey layout-centered ‘landmark’ developing, and previous property of Taylor Swift, also highlighted in the music ‘Cornelia Road,’ on her Lover album.” The evening’s menu was described as “a journey to learn and style.” Hopefully, the journey was not hell and brought attendees heaven.
August slipped absent like a minute in time with no a PR celebration having spot at 23 Cornelia.
September saw a thirty day period of tears and no public PR events at 23 Cornelia Street.
Condominium Therapy reports the not-mystery news that Zanotta had been occupying the room in a piece titled “Peek Within Taylor Swift’s Former NYC Residence.” The story contains a movie tour of the property showcasing the firm’s fragile lights and present day-furniture kinds. The tour, even so, is disappointingly non-reminicisent of Easter-egg-stuffed Lover tunes-video clip dwelling.
The home was also opened to tours this thirty day period as component of the New York Junior League’s Fall House Tour, which apparently brought in $50,000 (only a little bit significantly less than what it now expenses to hire the townhouse for a solitary month and about the exact same price as the price tag of a resale floor seat to the Eras tour).
The Cornelia Road defeat actually picked up when Zanotta announced it would invite company to the showroom to swim in the pool and even slumber in the same location exactly where Taylor slept (also, allegedly, maybe Joe Alwyn). But not just any individual could waltz in, mentioned Marta Zanotta, niece of designer Aurelio Zanotta and the company’s internet marketing and interaction supervisor. “You simply cannot enter and obtain anything, and you can’t arrive in with no an appointment,” she advised the New York Submit. “This is a house with a soul.” We know the soul of this house all as well well, truly.
A 7 days later on, the household was put on the market by Corcoran for $45,000 per thirty day period ($6,000 extra than Taylor paid out in 2016). The TikTok tour of the 5-story townhouse went viral as Swifties fantasized about paying out higher education-tuition-amount prices to dwell there.
As of this thirty day period, the apartment is even now out there for hire in accordance to listing agents at Corcoran. Wishing our very best to the long term tenants.
