Gimme Shelter What’s Up Doc

Great Scott! Jude Law is on the hunt for a downtown rental in the $10,000-plus range.

One apartment that the actor, who plays Dr. Watson in the new “Sherlock Holmes” films, saw was a stunning triplex in an 1853 townhouse.

The sprawling, 2,600-square-foot residence, which comes with a private garden, is in the heart of the West Village at 109 Greenwich Ave. The $10,500-a-month rental, with four bedrooms, three bathrooms and 11-foot ceilings, is available furnished (with lots of beautiful antiques). Original details include ceiling moldings, antique pine doors and wide-plank floors.

Spies say Law was low-key as he visited the property with an assistant and a broker. We hear that he’s looking to rent while working on a new film in the city — and that his children and his parents will be staying off-and-on during the stint.

Listing broker Tatiana Cames of the Corcoran Group could not be reached for comment.
