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.
