Actress, model, and fashionista Diane Kruger sold her unsurprisingly stylish East Village pad for $1.1 million, higher than the $985,000 listing price. The Post tells us that a 12-offer bidding war ensued, likely due to the myriad of charming features–expansive exposed brick walls, a renovated modern kitchen, and lovely outdoor terrace–and the prime location at 315 East 12th Street, between booming 1st and 2nd Avenues.
The loft-style apartment, just a one-flight walkup, has deep-set oversized windows that run the entire length, letting in great southern light, as well as Cocoa Bean hardwood oak floors and a perfectly styled mix of mid-century modern furniture and urban-chic accessories.
The kitchen has been completely remodeled with custom gray cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and a stainless steel counter and backsplash.
The two-bedroom home is currently configured as a one-bedroom, but it could be easily converted back. The bedroom has a walk-in closet and ensuite access to the newly renovated “Jack and Jill” bathroom.
The terrace, surrounded by the neighborhood’s quintessential brick tenements, has enough room to dine al fresco or host a small group of friends.
Kruger bought the home in October 2015 for $976,000. She recently told amNY about why she loves the neighborhood: “I feel like it’s still a little gritty. When I used to live here, you did not come there at all. It was a dangerous place for a girl to go by yourself. It’s been gentrified a lot. It’s harder and harder to get a sense of a neighborhood. I love the West Village, but it feels too manicured to me.”
