Swifties, take note! The historic West Village carriage house that inspired Taylor Swift’s 2019 song “Cornelia Street” is available for rent. The four-bedroom and seven-bathroom townhouse will run you $45,000 a month. Spanning three stories, the 1870-built structure stretches 21 feet wide, allowing for roughly 5,500 square feet of living space.
The 11-time Grammy-winner rented the New York City home in 2016 while renovating her Tribeca townhouse. Her song “Cornelia Street,” from the 2019 album Lover, details memories from her time inhabiting the space and the beginnings of her relationship with her current partner, actor Joe Alwyn.
An arched wooden garage door with iron details centers the brown brick facade, flanked by two matching side entry doors. A guest bedroom with an ensuite half bath is tucked behind the garage area. On the garden level below, a 30-foot-long indoor swimming pool and an adjacent lounge area complete with a fireplace enjoy basalt stone tile floors and double-height ceilings stretching 27 feet high. Back doors open to a small garden patio.
On the second floor, a living room with light parquet wood floors is complete with leaded glass windows and a fireplace with a gray marble hearth. An open-plan kitchen and dining area is lined with floor-to-ceiling casement windows (“windows swung right open, autumn air,” Swift croons on the track). On the other side of the living room is another guest suite, currently staged as an office space. Upstairs, two larger bedroom suites each enjoy walk-in closets and private terraces, one of which offers an outdoor lounge space with another fireplace. A rooftop terrace supplies more opportunities for outdoor lounging, along with downtown views.
Currently, the home is being rented by Italian furniture firm Zanotta, as an immersive showroom space for networking and displaying their high-end wares. The property last changed hands in 2019 for $11.5 million, records show. Laurence Carty, Irene Lo, and Jennifer Rahilly of Corcoran hold the rental listing.
