Josh Klausner Sells West Village Home for $42.5 Million


802 Greenwich St

Hollywood screenwriter Josh Klausner and his wife the oil heiress Hyatt Bass have sold their Manhattan mansion for $32.5 million, reports the New York Daily News.

Looking more like a school building or even a police station than a private home, the three floor red brick mansion sits at 802 Greenwich St on the corner of 12th Street in the West Village.

The more than 12, 000 square foot house looks the way that it does because it was designed to be secure, like having your entire house being a safe room. This was done because Bass’ mother was held hostage in the family’s Connecticut home back in 2007.

The fours story house was designed by Annabelle Selldorf and was built as a “fortress” with enhanced security. There are state-of-the-art security cameras all around it. It does have a garden, however.

The sidewalks around it have embedded heaters which will automatically melt the snow in winter time. This will certainly be a relief to the new owners since they will not need to shovel in front of the house as is required under New York City ordinances.

The property was acquired by Bass in 2001 for $7.5 million and the new house was first reveled to the public in 2013. There is no word on how much was spent on its transformation and Bass had originally sought as much as $35 million for it.

Klausner and Bass never actually lived in it and the buyer’s identity was not revealed.

Josh Klausner wrote hit movies like Date Night and Shrek Ever After.
