Chris Rock is a long time resident of New Jersey and seems to be in an Empire State these days.
Rock, the four-time Emmy- and three-time Grammy-winning comedian and actor — who’s done everything from 1999’s hilarious spoken-word track “No Sex (In the Champagne Room)” to taking on Will Smith’s Oscar-winning Slapped in a Netflix stand-up special earlier this year – was in town house hunting.
We’ve heard he toured a $9.45 million condo in Soho, the pictures of which show a lovely, wood-paneled interior fit for a man with rock taste.
The two-bedroom, three-bathroom residence at 60 Greene St. is a spacious 3,918 square feet and occupies the entire fourth floor of a five-story 1873 cast-iron building.
The open floor plan home features nearly 13-foot ceilings, large windows, hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, classic columns, exposed brick and a wood-burning fireplace with a statement mantel of backlit onyx tiles.
There is also a professional chef’s kitchen and elsewhere a raised deck area for relaxing and entertaining.
The sellers bought the unit in 2013 for $6.79 million.
Beyond Touring This Luxury Home, Rock, 58, was also recently spotted on a sweet walk with his eldest daughter, Lola Simone Rock, 21, in Soho – just as the trailer for his latest film Rustin was released. In the film, Rock plays the late NAACP executive Roy Wilkins, who led the 1963 March on Washington.
