A a few weeks ago the owner of the New York mansion was in the 2001 Wes Anderson film The Royal Tenenbaums put it on the market. But if you can’t afford the $ 20,000 per month rent (yes, neither do I.) There is still a chance to stay at the fully furnished 1899 Brownstone this Memorial Day weekend. And it’ll only cost you $ 20 per night, thanks to Airbnb.
For two nights from May 29, two guests can have access to the first four floors of the house (three of which are accessible by private elevator). Single booking becomes available on Airbnb May 26 at 12 p.m. ET, so you’ll have to be quick to get it.
Officially known as the Charles H. Tuttle Mansion, the house is named after the former resident, a lawyer and politician who once ran for New York governorate against FDR in 1930. In the film, the Home of the charming eccentric Tenenbaum family is located on fictitious Archer Avenue. In real life, you can find it at 339 Convent Avenue in the Hamilton Heights neighborhood of Harlem, just around the corner from the 145th Street stop of the A / C / B / D subway lines.

Inside the home you’ll find a chef’s kitchen and formal dining area, as well as gas fireplaces and plenty of not so accidentally Wes Anderson–like details, like stained glass and decorative woodwork. Fans of the film will be delighted to see that the director didn’t just use the outdoors as a filming location. According to CurbedAnderson rented the house for six months and used the turret interiors as bedrooms for Margot, Richie, and Chas in the film.
Interested? Set a reminder to open the reservation on May 26 at 12 p.m. ET. As Richie Tenenbaum would say to his hawk: “Go Mordecai!
