The West Village apartment that appears to be the former home of Philip Seymour Hoffman is on the rental market for $9,995 per month.
Previous reports had stated that the fourth-floor, 1,100-square-foot unit at 35 Bethune Street hit the rental block for $10,500 per month in March — and had rented the following day. However, StreetEasy does not show records of this apartment having been rented at that time. It was not immediately clear whether the reported rental deal fell through, or if this is solely a price chop. This home is the only one at the building with this square footage.
Arlyne Blitz of the Corcoran Group has the listing but declined to comment. A Corcoran spokesperson did not immediately respond to messages seeking confirmation and comment.
The apartment has two bedrooms and two bathrooms; Hoffman was reportedly found dead in one of the bathrooms with a hypodermic needle still stuck in his arm.
“They did a big clean-up,” an unidentified source told the New York Post last month of the home.
The spread includes 10-foot wood-beamed ceilings, oak flooring, a wood-burning fireplace, custom closets in the bedrooms and nine oversized windows. Hoffman had lived at Pickwick House since last fall, which StreetEasy records confirm. The building was built in the 1880s and renovated in the 1980s. It’s located between Greenwich and Washington streets and contains 22 apartments. — Zachary Kussin
