Muscular son of Scotland and star of the only rom-com that matters, Gerard Butler, has put his home on the market. The 3,150 square foot, two bedroom, two bathroom duplex is asking $5.995 million and is jam-packed with over the top features.
The Phantom of the Opera star’s home was featured in Architectural Digest, where he described the design as “something elegant and gorgeous and at the same time rather masculine and raw. I guess I would describe the apartment as bohemian old-world rustic chateau with a taste of baroque.” The interiors were designed by production designer Elvis Restaino, inspired by Butler’s love of “crumbling walls.” I mean, we totally get it.
Unique features of the Chelsea apartment include: 11-foot mahogany doors, limestone columns supported by lions, a ceiling fresco, numerous chandeliers and the aforementioned crumbling walls. The kitchen is outfitted with modern appliances and the second level offers up copious amounts of outdoor space. The home movie theater includes a stone lion’s head from an old library, two Indian columns and a repurposed piece from a cathedral in the Bronx.
