This $18.5M NYC townhouse appeared on ‘Succession’ — and now it can be yours

A New York City limestone townhouse with "Succession" ties asks $18.5 million.

This Upper East Side limestone townhouse, which serves as the fictional home of Jeremy Strong’s Kendall Roy character in season 1 of “Succession,” has it all.

And now it’s back on the market for $18.5 million — down from the home’s original $26.5 million ask in 2015.

Beyond that buzzy HBO series, which ended its run last year, this home has had other moments in the spotlight.

Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig also played house there for a “Saturday Night Live” skit, and it’s also been the setting for shows like “Elsbeth,” “Younger” and “Law & Order: SVU” — and even the backdrop for multiple Vogue magazine shoots.

Built in the 1880s, the stately five-story, gut-renovated residence at 160 E. 83rd St. is, most of all, a star in its own right.

The sellers bought the residence for $5 million in 2005 from the estate of a late portrait artist, whose subjects included President Richard Nixon, Mayor John Lindsay and the Shah of Iran, according to the New York Times.

At the time, the home was divided into two duplex units. It’s now a single-family spread with a two-story addition.

The five-bedroom, 6.5-bath home features Doric-styled columns, dormer windows, an elevator and five gas fireplaces. Details also include mahogany floors, 12-foot ceilings and a spiral staircase anchored by an oculus at the top.

The parlor floor boasts an eat-in chef’s kitchen with lovely wood-beamed ceilings, radiant-heated floors, and two ovens and dishwashers.

A rear glass wall in the kitchen overlooks the large garden, while a glass-enclosed staircase with a mahogany banister leads from the kitchen to a glass-enclosed gym. Currently operating as a basketball court, the space could also be a home gym, a yoga studio or a playroom.

A rear staircase leads to a wood-paneled library with a bath, and could be converted into an additional bedroom.

While the smart-wired abode is 18.4 feet wide in the front, the rear of the home expands to a gracious 54 feet. The elevated garden — built on bedrock — is also triple-wide, offering extra privacy.
