Has funnyman Danny DeVito given up his West Coast life for a return to the Big Apple? Not if Frank Reynolds has something to say about it!
The “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” star quietly purchased a charming Brooklyn brownstone right before the pandemic hit, The Post can report.
The sale was finalized on January 6, 2020 in a bargain and sale deed, according to New York property records.
While it is unknown exactly how much the home sold for, it is estimated DeVito, 76, paid upwards of at least $2 million. DeVito’s reps didn’t respond to The Post’s requests for comment.
The previous owner purchased the property for $2,200,000 in 2016. And prices in the area have only increased.
Newly constructed in 2014, the four-story brownstone is made up of four bedrooms and five bathrooms. The structure was originally built on a 1,291-square-foot lot.
Each room boasts 11-feet-high ceilings. It also features an expansive living area and formal dining room, as well as a brand-new chef’s kitchen, with custom white cabinetry and marble countertops.
The large master suite includes a spacious walk-in closet and a windowed Carrara marble master bath and opens up to one of the two private roof decks.
The second roof deck showcases glorious Manhattan views from 1 World Trade Center to the Chrysler Building.
The Brooklyn pad is beautifully situated in the Clinton Hill neighborhood, near local eateries, cafes and bars.
DeVito’s estranged wife, actress Rhea Perlman, was also listed on the transfer deed.
The two separated in October 2012, after 30 years of marriage and over 40 years together. But they reconciled again in 2013. They separated for a second time in March 2017, but remain on amicable terms.
Perlman, 72, revealed to The Post in 2018 that she would never divorce DeVito.
“We’ve been together a very long time, so there’s a lot of love and history,” she said. “We agree on enough things, so why [ruin] that with the yucky things that come with a divorce?”
The two co-starred together in the television show “Taxi” and the famous feature film, “Matilda.”
They share three grown children, Lucy, 37, Grace, 35, and Jake, 33.
DeVito and Perlman also own a three-bedroom, two-bathroom Los Angeles pad they purchased in 2018, following their massive $28 million sale of their longtime Beverly Hills mansion.
