Remember Elaine’s Townhouse from ‘Seinfeld’? It’s Currently on the Market
Do you remember the iconic townhouse where Elaine Benes (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) lived on Seinfeld? Well, the New York property can now be yours for a cool $8.65 million.
The famous building was recently listed by Mark Thomas Amadei and Jonathan Hettinger of Sotheby’s International Realty. The home is widely recognized as the beloved character’s residence on the ’90s sitcom, though it has undergone a few minor changes since it doubled as a set.
The current owners, Harry Azorin and Lori Monson, purchased the townhouse back in 1995 for $950,000. Although the cast finished the majority of filming before the family moved in, they admitted that the exterior of the home regularly attracts Seinfeld fans.
“Maybe twice a month, someone would walk by, and they’d say, ‘Is this Elaine’s house?'” Monson told The Wall Street Journal.

The townhouse is situated in Chelsea and overlooks the General Theological Seminary and its accompanying gardens.
The 4,730-square-foot lot boasts five floors, both front and rear gardens, six bedrooms and eight—we repeat, eight—fireplaces.
Inside the house, guests are greeted with a double parlor, featuring high ceilings, hand-carved moldings and a black and gold Italian marble fireplace connecting the two rooms.
The living room is accented by another fireplace, in addition to loads of natural light.
The bedrooms are located on the top three floors of the townhouse. This particular one offers a surprisingly modern vibe, with minimal furniture and slanted ceilings.
The dining area includes a fully equipped chef’s kitchen to please the pickiest of foodies. The room is far more rustic than the rest of the house, which provides a stark contrast to the property’s period details.
Yada, yada, yada.
