T’was the night before Christmas when all through the house, not a creature was stirring not even a… new owner?

Fashion stylist Karl Templar has just snapped up 348 West 22nd Street — the Chelsea townhouse where Clement Clarke Moore wrote “The Night Before Christmas” poem in 1822 — for $8 million, city records show.

The 4,300-square-foot home was put on the market in May 2016 for a little under $8.7 million, and was most recently asking $8.1 million. It had been divided into a triplex and two studios but was delivered vacant to Templer, a British-born, New York-based stylist and creative director.

At 21-foot-wide, the townhouse currently comes with seven bedrooms, period details, marble mantles, parquet wood floors, multiple terraces and an oversized south-facing garden. But we suspect Templer might mix up a few things as he’ll no doubt be turning the place back into a single family home.

Matthew Lesser and Ravi Kantha of Leslie J. Garfield had the listing.
