All our Swifties, this one is for you. The iconic West Village carriage house that inspired Taylor Swift's song, Cornelia Street, of her 2019 album, Lover, is now available for rent. The Grammy Award winner rented the townhouse back in 2016, where she penned the famous song, thought to be about her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, who she began dating around the time. Now, fast forward a couple of years, and the iconic apartment is available for rent- for $45,000 a month, that is.
The song focuses on her relationship with Alwyn, which all began while she lived on Cornelia Street in her gorgeous townhouse in Greenwich Village. In the song, Swift sings that she would never be able to "walk down Cornelia Street again" if they ever broke up, and well, they haven't! When she moved into number 23 during the summer of 2016, the apartment was owned by former Soho House executive David Aldea, who confessed he "didn't know who Taylor Swift was" to Vulture. Despite its rather unassuming exterior, it didn't take long for fans to realize where she was, and now that it's available for rent, Swifties are all over the opportunity.
The gorgeous Cornelia Street apartment spans three stories, with four bedrooms and seven bathrooms at 5,500 square feet and roughly 21 feet wide. So, nothing too tiny for an NYC space. The 1870-built structure boasts an indoor pool, gym area, and private garden on the basement level with huge double-height windows. The ground level is where the dining room, living room, garage, and one bedroom sit and is actually where Swift herself posted a video writing the song, King of my Heart. The top floor holds two larger bedrooms suites with popstar-level walk-in closets, private terraces, outdoor lounge spaces, and a fireplace. However, the highlight of the apartment is the rooftop level that provides unbelievable views of Manhattan.
The apartment is currently being rented by an Italian furniture firm, Zanotta, and used as a showroom space for networking events to display their high-end pieces. In 2019, the property was sold for $11.5 million. So, this could be your chance if you're looking for some Cornelia Street magic.
