Hugh gotta be kidding? Thespians battle for Bowery-Bond bachelor pad

According to the Post's Jennifer Gould Keil today:

Hugh Grant and Gerard Butler might be duking it out for the $15.45 million penthouse triplex at 54 Bond St. in NoHo. Both actors have checked out this grand, three-bedroom, 4,862-square-foot bachelor pad on a charming cobblestoned block. Developer Adam Gordon says the entire building is also for sale at $32 million — and can be turned into an 11,000-square-foot, single-family mansion (plus retail space), with the basement used for storage or transformed into a lap pool. Gordon bought the cast-iron, landmarked structure, which dates back to 1874 and is also known as the Bouwerie Lane Theatre building, for $15 million in 2007.

The penthouse has swirling mahogany staircases where a craftsman molded each piece of wood by hand. There are two full gourmet, dine-in kitchens — one with an adjacent wine-tasting room. The penthouse also includes 1,277 square feet of outdoor space, including a roof deck and a terrace.

If one of these fellows should happen to land here... they would join this group of notables who have lived at this address... (per the 54 Bond Web site)

Lauren Hutton used to eat at Great Jones Cafe fairly often: She'd order a ton of stuff, then take a single bite of each.

I do have a tiny crush on Hugh...
