Daniele Radcliffe bought another property in New York at a hefty price. It states, “According to city records, a brownstone on West 12th Street that was apparently built 162 years ago by a sea captain, was just sold for $5.65 million to the same limited liability corporation that owns Daniel Radcliffe’s apartment at Jean Nouvel’s 40 Mercer Street. The 20-year-old actor’s mother is listed on the deed.” Radcliffe also owns an expensive property in West Village.

This photo set from shows how grand the apartment is. Even the floor plan is posted and it’s a worthy purchase by Radcliffe indeed. The bar pictured in the site speaks fine craftsmanship. Even the view of the terrace is superb.

As soon as news about the sale surfaced online, Sotheby’s listing removed the property description on its site. However, New York Magazine has saved the entry: “This lovingly renovated townhouse is one of three adjoining homes built by a sea captain in 1847 for his three daughters. The property is on one of New York’s most picturesque tree-lined landmark cobblestone blocks: West 12th Street, between Greenwich and Washington Streets. The 18 plus-foot-wide house faces South, and is soaked in sunlight throughout the day. The sizable open garden and backyard is cooled by beautiful old trees and landscaping.”

Are we sensing a real estate mogul in the future? As soon as news about the sale surfaced online, Sotheby’s llsting removed the property description on its site. This should inspire other teens to carefully think about where their savings are going. Not everyone may amass the same fortune by casting magic spells on screen but it should teach young people to invest their money wisely.
