Hugh Grant and Gerard Butler might be duking it out for the $15.45 million penthouse triplex at 54 Bond St. in NoHo.

Both actors have checked out this grand, three-bedroom, 4,862-square-foot bachelor pad on a charming cobblestoned block. Developer Adam Gordon says the entire building is also for sale at $32 million — and can be turned into an 11,000-square-foot, single-family mansion (plus retail space), with the basement used for storage or transformed into a lap pool.

Gordon bought the cast-iron, landmarked structure, which dates back to 1874 and is also known as the Bouwerie Lane Theatre building, for $15 million in 2007.


TIME TO BOND: Hugh Grant and Gerard Butler (inset) both paid a visit to 54 Bond St.
The penthouse has swirling mahogany staircases where a craftsman molded each piece of wood by hand. There are two full gourmet, dine-in kitchens — one with an adjacent wine-tasting room. The penthouse also includes 1,277 square feet of outdoor space, including a roof deck and a terrace.

Just what every rich actor needs....yet another multi-million dollar house they'll never be there to live in.

Too bad someone doesn't buy it and turn it into a historical site so everyone can benefit from it.

Triplex = one building split into 3 dwellings/apartments/condos, or an apartment with 3 floors

In the case of the Bouwerie Lane Theatre building, both definitions apply. It is split into 3 different apartments, and the penthouse apartment has 3 floors.

Let's ogle the listing, shall we.

Good grief! They have a grass lawn on the rooftop!

Yep, yep and hell yep to you all.

Now as to Divine Brown ... I wonder if she has some ho' friends who stroll nearby. Generous spirit that I am, I'm only thinking about the photo ops and exchange rate.

GB would be insane to purchase this after the address has been printed for all and sundry. Either he is earning much more than assumed or he is dreaming because the cost of that apartment would feed a small starving nation.

But hey, I can't tell him how to spend his money. It's his.

The fact that the building used to be a theater probably has special meanings to actors.

The realtors are using the actors to draw interest in the listings. I'm interested. However, if I had the money (HAHAHAHAHAHA) I'd get something with a real yard, and a fence and electrify that sucker.
