Actor Benjamin McKenzie Eyes a Glitzy High Line Duplex
Star of “Gotham” (or Ryan from “The O.C.” for our 20-something readers) Benjamin McKenzie was seen checking out a glitzy duplex at 420 West 25th Street, reports the Post. The $2.5 million pad near the High Line is located in the pre-war Ink Press building and features two bedrooms, double-height ceilings, and a private terrace. It’s currently decked out with crystal chandeliers, gold decor, and elegant fabrics, a style we think would well suite the handsome actor.
On the first floor, the open living/dining area feels like a townhouse thanks to 14-foot ceilings and dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows. The gilded decor of these rooms is complimented by the crisp white, ultra-contemporary chef’s kitchen. Other features of the duplex include a washer/dryer, European plank floors, and imported Porcelanosa ceramic tiles in the 2.5 bathrooms.
There is one bedroom on the first floor and a larger one on the second floor; the latter comes complete with a charming terrace that features enough room for lounging and dining, as well as a mirrored wall. The listing notes that either bedroom could comfortably serve as the master.
Known as Loft 25, the building was originally constructed in 1912 as the Ink Press building, and in 2006 architects at Traboscia Roiatti Studio built an addition to create this 78-unit condominium. This unit is one of only four garden duplexes. McKenzie listed his Hollywood Hills home for $1.8 million earlier this month, and the Post reports that it appears to be selling.
