Most townhouses have had a hard time on the market over the last decade. Take, for example, “The Real Housewives of New York” star Sonja Morgan, who has been trying to sell her home in the Upper East Side since 2013.

De Niro, 78, has a main residence in Gardiner, New York, which is situated on a colossal 98 acres of land. When he bought the property at the time, in 1998, it cost him only $ 1.5 million.

He also owns a home in Montauk.

De Niro has since rented out a few other Manhattan pillows, but in 2012 – the same year he built his long-standing townhouse – he reportedly bought his first London home.

The actor has been in the middle of a controversial divorce battle with his estranged wife, Grace Hightower. The two married in 1997. Last summer, when the pandemic was at its height, De Niro’s lawyer, Caroline Krauss, revealed in a Skype court hearing that he would live in his home in New York for the “foreseeable future”.

“He intends to live in Gardiner for the foreseeable future,” Krauss said of De Niro – who grew up in Manhattan and has deep roots in the city. “After all, he is 76 and in the category of people for whom COVID-19 is dangerous.”

Last week, a judge rejected Hightower’s request that she be entitled to half of his earnings.

Hightower claimed that a 2004 marriage contract she entered into with “The Irishman” star gave her the right to half of his earnings from when they were together – and claimed that they are marital assets to be shared equally.

But the appeals department rejected Hightower’s arguments and upheld a February lower court decision.
