The movie star power couple Sarah Jessica Parker and Mathew Broderick have put their Greenwich Village house up for sale, again. This time they hope to get $22 million for it.

Its master bedroom suite, which takes up a full floor, has a 25′ x 12′ private terrace and his and her walk in closets and its bathroom has a hand carved stone tub that sits in the middle of it. The house is 25 feet wide.

Broderick and Parker bought the house in 2011 for $19 million. They previously tried to sell it in 2012 for $35 million, but found no buyers at that price and so they took it off of the market.
Reportedly, the two never actually lived in it; even though, they had the house renovated.
The listing on Zillow boasts that it is, “located in quintessential Greenwich Village between Fifth & University [it] is the architectural and historical embodiment of pristine New York luxury living. The Garden Floor is outfitted with a Boffi stainless steel and rich walnut eat-in kitchen, bookend marble wall fireplace, Boffi shelving and storage units, with off-kitchen access to the south-facing, split level Garden.
