Web visionary Sean Parker recently purchased a notorious Greenwich Village party house nicknamed the “Bacchus House” for the stupendous price of $20 million. Parker, Napster co-founder and former president of Facebook, was recently portrayed by Justin Timberlake in the award-winning film “The Social Network.

The tech titan previously rented the same converted carriage house for $45,000 per month and used it for entertaining. As a renter, Parker had a colorful reputation for hosting wild, celeb-studded soirees. He also used the home to host his 30th birthday party, which also raised $60,000 for malaria eradication.

According to the listing description, the beautifully restored Beaux Arts-style home is situated on one of the best streets in Greenwich Village, adjacent to a row of aristocratic mansions. The 7,500-sq ft home includes  six bedrooms, 7.5 baths, a highly coveted private garage, indoor pool and a landscaped atrium.

The property was previously owned by Enrico Cinzano, an Italian wine heir and financier. According to the NY Post, “It has been on the market for years but has not been officially listed since 2009, when the asking price was $18.75 million.”
