You won’t find signs of Harvey Weinstein at his old New York home — the new owners have completely stripped the property of anything that could remind others of the disgraced Hollywood executive.

The upscale West Village townhouse, which Weinstein sold amid scandal in March for $25.6 million, has been “gutted” by builders preparing it for the new owners, the New York Post’s Page Six reports.

After dozens of women came forward with rape and other sexual misconduct allegations against Weinstein in the fall of 2017, the movie mogul was ousted from his own media company and became persona non grata in Hollywood. The anonymous buyer took out a $20 million mortgage signed by Bruce Karsh, chief investment officer at private equity company Oaktree Capital Management.

The new owners have been working hard to completely revamp the property. The outside of the house has been boarded up and the windows have been sealed while the inside has been stripped down to the bare walls, according to Page Six.

The same property had once been used to host a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton during her run for president in 2016 and stars including Jennifer Lopez and Sarah Jessica Parker attended.

Weinstein bought the townhouse with his then-wife Georgina Chapman in 2006 for nearly $15 million through a limited liability company called Cheget.

Over the past year, Weinstein and Chapman, now divorced, have sold off more than $53 million in real estate. Properties sold include a townhouse in Los Angeles for $1.8 million, a mansion in Connecticut for $16 million, and a warterfront estate in the Hamptons for $10 million.
