Actress Julia Stiles may not make the news much these days, but she found her way into Variety over the weekend with the sale of her Gramercy duplex apartment. The three-bedroom pad, which sits in a six-unit brownstone building at 310 East 15th Street directly across from historic Stuyvesant Square, was placed on the market last summer for $3.5 million. While the apartment saw a price chop just a few months after being listed, Stiles still managed to finagle $2.7 million from a less than famous buyer—a pretty nice profit considering she originally paid $1.995 million for the unit 10 years ago.
The 2,081-square-foot apartment comes with its own key-lock elevator, which opens up to the apartment’s foyer. A newly renovated kitchen, bright and airy open plan, two wood-burning fireplaces, and a 100+ square foot storage room in the basement are some of the perks that come with the quarters.
Though the spaces sum up to a pretty suburban-looking home, the unit makes up for its simple design with a massive, full-level roof-deck which is hugged by treetops and panoramic views that include the Empire State building.
