Taylor Swift’s former Cornelia Street home, where she fell in love with Joe Alwyn, is on the market after it was priced at $18 million – up $6 million from before
- Located at 23 Cornelia Street, the 5,500-square-foot, five-bedroom Coach House was built in 1899 but has undergone several facelifts throughout the century
- In 2016, the townhouse — which last sold for $11.5 million — was occupied by then-27-year-old Swift, who rented it while her other home in the Big Apple was being renovated
- Swift lived in the house for the next several months – an experience she alluded to in the ninth song of her seventh studio album of the same name
A condo that was once the home of Taylor Swift has hit the market for a staggering $18 million — thanks to premium amenities like a private indoor pool and a fully stocked two-car garage despite being in the Big Apple.
Located on quiet Cornelia Street, the 500-square-foot, five-bed home was built in 1899 to accommodate horse-drawn carriages, but has undergone several transformations throughout the century — and has been occupied by several wealthy tenants at the same time.
In 2016, the quaint townhouse — which last sold for $11.5 million — was occupied by then-27-year-old Swift, who decided to rent the condo temporarily while her $50 million loft was built few blocks away was renovated.
For the next few months, Swift lived at the house on “Cornelia Street,” an experience she alluded to in the ninth song on her seventh studio album of the same name.
Aside from the star’s temporary sojourn in the West Village, the song Cornelia Street also featured lyrics that told of the early days of a relationship she shared with a man many believe to be British actor Joe Alwyn.

In addition to being a Swifty’s dream, the completely renovated home comes with a full two-car garage and indoor pool despite being in the Big Apple
Located on quiet Cornelia Street, the 500-square-foot, five-bed property was originally built in the 19th century to house horse-drawn carriages. However, over the course of the century it has undergone several transformations – and has been occupied by several wealthy tenants at the same time
The recently separated couple began dating in 2016, around the time Swift was living at the residence.
“I rent a place on Cornelia Street,” Swift sings on the first verse of her 2019 song, recalling the words she shared with a mysterious man in the back seat of a car after a night of drinking, which she presumably did is about Alwyn.
The love ballad continues to tell the story of a new, budding relationship between Swift and the unnamed man — and the pop star’s fear of her possible demise, which would then make it too difficult for her to ever return to the apartment.
“I hope I never lose you, I hope it never ends/I would never walk Cornelia Street again/This is the kind of heartbreak that time could never heal/I would never walk Cornelia Street again,” says the song.
Back in March, that prophecy — as it applied to Alwyn — came true when it was revealed that Swift and her boyfriend of more than six years had split.
About a month after the initial report, real estate agents from the Corcoran Group released a listing showing that the apartment at 23 Cornelia Street was for sale at a price well above other houses in the neighborhood – by several million dollars.
Speaking to Curbed Friday, staff at the Madison Avenue-based real estate company said they’re confident the home’s rich history — as well as its many unusual features — will help it handle the steep asking price.
“I’m the biggest fan of unique properties,” said Sydney Blumstein of the renovated 19th-century relic, complete with numerous fireplaces and well-located patios.
“You can’t afford a private pool on a quiet street like Cornelia,” added Blumstein, who hails from nearby Greenwich Village.
Swift lived in the house for several months in 2016 and 2017 – an experience she alluded to in the ninth song of her seventh studio album, also called “Cornelia Street.”
