Jimmy Fallon’s Playful New York Penthouse Lists for $15 Million
Jimmy Fallon bought his first apartment, a one-bedroom bachelor pad in a historic co-op building on the east side of Manhattan’s Gramercy Park, for $850,000 in 2002. Nearly two decades later, he and his wife, Nancy Juvonen, are putting their six-bedroom penthouse, which spans three floors of the building, on the market for $15 million.
The eclectic, colorful apartment explodes with personality. Pieced together over more than a decade from combining four units, the roughly 5,000-square-foot space is filled with nooks and crannies, cubbyholes, narrow corridors and secret passageways. Nearly every wall, including the insides of cupboards and closets, is covered in art, from paintings of the couple’s favorite people to vintage wallpaper from the 1920s through the 1960s.
“I always like a secret bookshelf or a secret room,” the late-night talk show host said in an interview with his wife. “Like from ‘The Hardy Boys’ or something.”
On the property’s main floor, the couple has a large central entertainment space they call the saloon room that has vintage shelving—including custom inlaid stained glass—and a stone hearth. Decorated in tartan wallpaper, a large antler chandelier and deep coffered wood ceilings, the room has a corner seating nook with a domed top designed to look like the constellations.
Ms. Juvonen, 53 years old, a movie producer with a passion for design, has placed novelty objects and treasures from the couple’s adventures all over the property. “I don’t like part of the room to be done and the other part you’re not supposed to really look at. I like layers and layers and layers,” she said. “I feel like there is energy in these inanimate objects.”
