Kiefer Sutherland Buys $8 Million New York Home

Kiefer Sutherland bought a new place in New York City, according to a report, and it's a looker. Just last month he bought the new downtown townhouse.

The "24" star just picked up a circa-1830s Greek Revival townhouse in the West Village for $8.2 million - millions less than its original asking price.

According to Prudential Douglas Elliman's Web site, the five-story structure with approximately 4,750 square feet of open space includes plans for a five-bedroom single-family home with "fabulous open living and entertaining spaces and [an] elevator." Kudos to real-estate columnist Bob Goldsborough, who first identified Sutherland's cleverly concealed trust.

The limited-liability company that was selling the Greenwich Street digs - and which purchased it in 2006 for $5.3 million - put it on the market for $12.99 million last January. Then it was lowered to $10.4 million in February. And then it was lowered again to its last asking price of $9.4 million.

Broker Leslie Mason of Prudential Douglas Elliman would only say that it was sold unrenovated.

The description has been removed from the Prudential Douglas Elliman website, but Judging by the description, it would seem his home is this one, from a cached Street Easy page:
