Channing Tatum’s Former Tribeca Townhouse Listed For $6.5M
In Magic Mike, Channing Tatum plays an — ahem — “dancer” who dreams of becoming a furniture designer. The movie’s plot is loosely based on Tatum’s own life, so we wondered: Is it possible the actor shares his character’s love of salvaged wood and architectural design? If his former home is any indication, the answer is likely yes.
This historic townhouse in NYC’s Tribeca neighborhood was built in the 1830s. The space was originally used as soap factory during the Civil war and over the last several years, current owner W. Robert Curtis has leased the home out to tenants willing to pony up his asking rental rates of $18,000 to $35,000 a month. (Tatum rented the place the summer of 2012.) Curtis is now selling, with a listing price of 6.5 million.

Spotlights hidden between the ceiling’s original oak beams bring extra light to the kitchen work area. A central island with a built-in cookbook shelf is home to a double sink and Miele dishwasher.
The fourth floor kitchen boasts a Viking commercial range and a SubZero refrigerator. Black-stained poplar cabinetry contrasts with the warm oak of the ceiling above and floor below.
Original exposed red brick dictates the design direction in the living room and throughout the home. The building’s original mechanical hoist, seen in the back corner, is still intact.
The open steel staircase connects the home’s four floors and lets lots of light flood through, making the space perfect for a collection of potted houseplants.
The two bedrooms are each on their own dedicated floor. The four-post wrought iron bed in the first floor guest room compliments the space’s vintage-industrial vibe.
A floor-to-ceiling steel and glass sliding door offers a modicum of privacy for the master bedroom’s sleeping area that’s tucked away in a cozy nook. (We’d call it the perfect bachelor pad, except Tatum was already married to wife Jenna Dewan when he took up residence here.)
The rooftop walk-out to the home’s private terrace is the perfect summer hangout.
Can you beat the view? We think not.
