Star of “The Good Wife” Alan Cumming has sold his four-bedroom East Village co-op at 297 East 10th Street in just a month’s time, the Observer tells us. After reports that he and his husband, graphic designer Grant Shaffer, were renovating a nearby 19th century townhouse they bought in 2013 for or $4.65 million, the couple listed the charming East Village apartment for $2.2 million last month. They bought the home on the third floor of a brick rowhouse in 2005 for $1.7 million and undertook some renovations, but were sure to maintain the historic details like an original wood-burning fireplace with a carved wooden mantel, wide-plank hardwood floors, architectural moldings, and beautiful built-ins.

The full-floor walk-up overlooks Tompkins Square Park through oversized windows. A foyer leads into the main living/dining area, which is open and bright and displays an attractive blend of classic and funky decor.

The other side of the apartment holds a full bath and four bedrooms. The corner mast suite is quite spacious, but the others are very narrow.

Sources say that their new townhouse at 404 East 9th Street will be ready for move in come September, so the timing on the sale is quite fortunate.
