Long a New Jersey resident, Chris Rock appears to be in an Empire State of mind these days.
Rock, the four-time Emmy and three-time Grammy-winning comedian and actor — who’s done everything from the hilarious 1999 spoken-word “No Sex (In the Champagne Room)” track to addressing Will Smith’s Oscars slap in a Netflix stand-up special earlier this year — has been house-hunting in the city.
We hear he toured a $9.45 million condo in Soho, whose images show a handsome wood-clad interior fit for a man with taste like Rock.
The two-bedroom, three-bathroom residence at 60 Greene St. is a spacious 3,918 square feet and takes up the entire fourth floor in a five-story cast-iron building that dates to 1873.
The open-concept home comes with ceilings close to 13 feet high, large windows, hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, classic columns, exposed brick and a woodburning fireplace with a statement mantel made of backlit onyx tiles.
There’s also a commercial-grade chef’s kitchen and, elsewhere, a raised platform area for lounging and entertaining.
The sellers bought the unit for $6.79 million in 2013.
Beyond touring this luxe home, Rock, 58, was also recently spotted on a sweet stroll with his eldest daughter, Lola Simone Rock, 21, in Soho — just as the trailer for his latest film, “Rustin”, dropped. In the film, Rock plays the late NAACP executive director Roy Wilkins who helped lead 1963’s March on Washington.
The listing broker is Ryan Serhant, of Serhant.
