The house from The Royal Tenenbaums is available to rent (for $20,000 a month!)
If you want to feel like you’re living in a Wes Anderson film, now’s your chance.
Fans of Wes Anderson will be excited to know that the house where The Royal Tenenbaums was filmed is now available to rent. The director is said to have spotted the house and admired its “storybook quality”, and asked the owner for permission to shoot there.
The film is not the house’s only claim to fame. It was also the home of U.S. attorney Charles H. Tuttle, and several well-known New York personalities including Fiorello LaGuardia and James Russel Parson, were regular guests. The six-bed home on Convent Avenue in New York doesn’t come cheaply, however: it will set you back $20,000 a month to stay.
At a huge 6,000 square feet, spanning over five floors and featuring over 50 windows, it’s an enormous house. Inside, it has plenty of beautiful features such as parquet floors, timber window frames, and stained glass windows.
The entrance level features a large living room, as well as the dining room which has a small kitchen area adjacent. The main kitchen is on the garden level, which features a pantry, while there is a patio area with space for an outdoor table.
The first floor has an additional family room, as well as a bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe. There are five further bedrooms across the next two floors, with the main bedroom having its own walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom. It is carefully decorated throughout.
