Born-and-raised New Yorker Claire Danes may be considered a Hollywood star, but she chooses to live in her childhood neighborhood of SoHo rather than Los Angeles.
And although Danes and her husband Hugh Dancy have just listed their SoHo apartment for $5.988 million, it’s doubtful she’ll be moving West anytime soon.
Danes got her big start on the mid-90s television show “My So-Called Life” with a role she earned an Emmy nomination and won the Golden Globe award. She moved on to film, nabbing the role of Juliet in “Romeo + Juliet,” opposite Leonardo DiCaprio. Currently, she’s back in television, starring in Showtime’s “Homeland,” in a role for which she received the 2012 Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series.
Danes’ SoHo condo is in an 1882 building, marked by exterior columns and exposed wood beams and sits on a quieter, cobblestone street. Inside, Danes’ 4,000-square-foot loft-like apartment has high ceilings, 16 windows, exposed brick and hardwood floors. The 3-bed, 3-bath home also includes a wood-burning fireplace and direct elevator access.
The listing is held by Elaine Schweninger of Town Real Estate.
