If you’re looking to own a Spike Lee joint, you’re in luck. The filmmaker and his wife are selling their Upper East Side townhouse, a.k.a. the Hatch House, for $32 million.

The 8,292-square-foot mansion at 153 East 63rd Street near Lexington Avenue features a private central courtyard with a fountain, the New York Post reported. Lee, who grew up in Brooklyn, purchased it from artist Jasper Johns in 1998, thus joining a long list of famous former owners that also includes Broadway producer Charles B. Dillingham and stripper Gypsy Rose Lee.

Frederick J. Sterner built it as a modern Spanish Revival-style property in the early 1900s.

The Bedford-Stuyvesant townhouse featured prominently in Lee’s 1994 film “Crooklyn” sold for $1.7 million in June, as previously reported. [NYP]Mark Maurer
