The twin red brick townhouses at 20-22 Bank Street, between Waverly Place and West Fourth Street, are being sold together (as a D.I.Y. mansion) for $37.5 million. Combined, the houses are nearly 40 feet wide with around 7,600 square feet of interior space that includes eight bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and two powder rooms. Outdoor space totals roughly 2,000 square feet. Both structures, built around 1845, retain many original architectural details like their numerous wood-burning fireplaces and ironwork.

Mr. Rudin, who has won critical acclaim for films like “The Social Network” and “No Country for Old Men,” and Broadway shows including “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “The Book of Mormon,” owns No. 22. He bought the building from Mr. Carter in 2019, paying $17.4 million, then commenced extensive renovations.

“He fully renovated it, added an elevator, and extended in the back,” said Deborah Grubman, a broker with the Corcoran Group who is representing Mr. Rudin. “It’s basically in mint condition.”

No. 20 was not recently renovated, according to the broker for the property, Henry Hershkowitz of Compass. It had been the home of Dr. Charles P. Dorato, a dentist, and his wife, Marilyn Dorato, since 1976. The building’s top floor currently has a tenant, but will be delivered vacant when sold, Mr. Herskowitz said.

The Rockefeller Guest House, at 242 East 52nd Street, between Second and Third Avenues, sold in a private deal for $19.9 million. Mr. Lauder, the youngest son of Estée Lauder, had paid almost $11.2 million for the Modernist building at a Christie’s auction in 2000.
