Claire Danes lists SoHo apartment

comp:00004fd4460e:00000017b6:7b0e 0 <div class="the-content clearfix"> <p>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.</p> <p>And although Danes and her husband Hugh Dancy have just listed their <a href="http://www.zillow.com/homes/for_sale/SoHo-Manhattan-New-York-NY/">SoHo apartment</a> for $5.988 million, it&#8217;s doubtful she&#8217;ll be moving West anytime soon.</p> <p>Danes got her big start on the mid-90s television show &#8220;My So-Called Life&#8221; 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 &#8220;Romeo + Juliet,&#8221; opposite Leonardo DiCaprio. Currently, she&#8217;s back in television, starring in Showtime&#8217;s &#8220;Homeland,&#8221; in a role for which she received the 2012 Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series.</p> <p><a href="http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/42-Wooster-St-APT-4-New-York-NY-10013/2118854122_zpid">Danes&#8217; SoHo condo</a> is in an 1882 building, marked by exterior columns and exposed wood beams and sits on a quieter, cobblestone street. Inside, Danes&#8217; 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.</p> <p>The listing is held by Elaine Schweninger of Town Real Estate.</p> <p>According to Zillow&#8217;s <a href="http://www.zillow.com/mortgage-calculator/">mortgage calculator</a>, a monthly payment on the home would be $21,821, assuming a 20 percent down payment on a <a href="http://www.zillow.com/30_Year_Fixed_Mortgage_Rates/">30-year-mortgage</a>.</p> <p><strong>Related:</strong></p> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.zillow.com/blog/2012-05-22/hunger-games-josh-hutcherson-buys-home-previously-owned-by-heath-ledger-ellen-degeneres/">Hunger Games&#8217; Josh Hutcherson Buys Home Previously Owned by Heath Ledger</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.zillow.com/blog/2012-05-21/leonardo-dicaprios-malibu-home-for-rent-75k-a-month/">Leonardo DiCaprio&#8217;s Malibu Home for Rent</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.zillow.com/blog/2012-05-18/fit-for-a-queen-game-of-thrones-star-lists-mid-century-home/">&#8220;Game of Thrones&#8221; Star Lists Mid-Century Home </a></li> </ul> </div>
