Actor Penn Badgley has moved to Park Slope. Known for his roles in Gossip Girl and most recently, Netflix’s You, Badgley paid $1,825,000 for a corner three-bedroom, two-bath at 140 Eighth Avenue, a 1930s co-op located just a block from Prospect Park. As first reported by real estate gossip blog Dirt, and confirmed by property records, the actor and his wife, musician Domino Kirke, paid $100,000 over the asking price.
The couple, who has been linked to other Brooklyn nabes like Williamsburg and Bushwick, married in 2017 and welcomed their first child together in August of 2020, which could explain the move to this kid-friendly neighborhood.
Located on the fifth floor of what’s known as the “Art Deco Building,” according to the listing, the apartment is charming, with parquet floors, sun-drenched rooms, and views of the treetops.
Through a large foyer, you’ll find a bright living room with built-in shelves and the windowed galley kitchen, which was recently renovated with new countertops and appliances.
The main bedroom features two closets and a renovated en-suite bath with a stall shower. The second bedroom is currently set up as a study and includes a convenient built-in wall unit. A third bedroom could easily become a home office, guest room, or playroom.
Amenities at the co-op include a laundry room, children’s room, two outdoor courtyards, and easy access to Prospect Park and Park Slope’s busy 7th Avenue. Monthly maintenance fees are $2,364.
