A brownstone where Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher once lived in New York City's Upper East Side is listed on the market for $11.5 million.
At the end of her thirteen-year marriage to shoe mogul Harry Karl, actress Debbie Reynolds moved her two children — Carrie Fisher and Todd Fisher — to a brownstone in New York City in the early 1970s. The four-story, luxury brownstone is located at 154 East 74th Street, between Third and Lexington Avenues.
The five-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom brownstone hit the market for $11.5 million in June with listing agent Steve Halpern of The Halpern Team. The listing says the brownstone was initially built in 1910 and is 4,275 square feet.
The ground-floor foyer invites guests into the home that Reynolds and the Fisher children walked through each day.
The foyer features light blue walls with white accents along the ceiling and baseboard. The artwork and gold mirror add pops of color, while the white marble floor stands out with its intricate design.
The media room — with a projector and movie screen — is the heart of the home. The family often enjoyed watching movies together while eating popcorn with melted butter.
The media room is a straight walk from the foyer and is located on the first floor. According to the listing, the room is fully sound automated with a projector and movie screen. It's fully soundproofed with cork flooring and sound insulation.
There's also a fully functional kitchen attached to the room, where people can cook up movie night snacks. In his memoir, Todd recalled their family tradition of watching films together in the media room and eating popcorn with real butter.
"It was a family tradition that we continued for the rest of our lives, and to this day I can't watch a movie unless there's plenty of popcorn with real melted butter on hand," he wrote. The ground floor also has one bedroom.
Walk through the media room's French patio doors and relax in the home's sprawling backyard.
Right outside the media room is the backyard. The outdoor space features a basketball court and an additional area for physical activities. The listing noted that large motorized awnings offer shade, along with a hard-wire gas grill perfect for cookouts. The backyard also has a full irrigation system.
