(NEW YORK, NEW YORK)— Liv Tyler has secretly sold the historic, three-story West Village townhouse she called home for nearly 20 years, The New York Post reports. Tyler bought the townhouse for $2.53 million in 2001 and sold it for $17.45 million this October.

Tyler was born in New York to Bebe Buell, a fixture on New York’s famously chaotic, creative downtown scene in the 1970s. She grew up throughout the US, in Maine, New York, and California. But she was a known fixture in the West Village and called the neighborhood home for many years.

This historic six-bedroom, six-bathroom home was first built-in the 19thcentury. Just this August, Architectural Digestshowcased the extensive repairs the actress has made to the property through the years. Although everything had to be refurbished and purchased anew, Tyler and British architect Ben Pentreath did their best to recreate the historical charm, down to details like the windows. Tyler says that although they aimed to restore the home as faithfully as possible, the only remaining original details are the ornately carved banisters of the stairs. At the time the Architectural Digest was published—just a few months ago—Tyler had already purchased a London townhouse to be closer to her British beau and father of her children, Dave Gardner, but expressed no plans to leave the West Village anytime soon.
