Anthony Rapp, who played the leading role of Mark Cohen in Broadway’s “Rent,” has put his East Village condo on the market for $3.85 million. Located within the luxury boutique building 32 East 1st Street, the actor’s three-bedroom, three-bath home features designer-crafted details across roughly 1,500 square feet. According to the New York Post, Rapp, who also starred in the comedy “Dazed and Confused,” bought the apartment for $3.57 million in October 2021.
Before moving into the home at East 1st Street, Rapp put his longtime loft studio in Noho on the market for $1.95 million in October 2021, as 6sqft reported. The actor purchased the downtown loft two decades ago for $375,000.
The Post reports that Rapp and his husband Ken Ithiphol welcomed their first child last year and are now looking to move to a bigger home to accommodate their growing family.
“We don’t know yet where we’ll end up, but we are very excited by the possibility of a bigger space for our family,” the couple told the newspaper.
The East Village pad boasts an open living room and modern finishes throughout. The sunny corner residence has triple-pane picture windows, high ceilings, and white oak floors.
The chef’s kitchen faces the living and dining room, with the cityscape of East 1st Street and Second Avenue as a backdrop. The sleek space includes Bianco Lasa marble, brushed oak Italian cabinetry, and high-end appliances, including a wine fridge and dishwasher.
The primary bedroom is in its own private corner off of the living space and separate from the two other bedrooms. The main suite has a large walk-in closet and an en-suite bath with stunning stonework from floor to ceiling.
Down the hall are the two remaining bedrooms, one of which is currently set up as an office but has a custom Murphy bed/bookcase perfect for overnight guests.
The home is ready for contemporary living with a built-in Sonos system, radiant bathroom flooring, electric shades, and central air and heating. Amenities at the 10-story building 32 East 1st Street, which was built in 2017, include a 24-hour attended lobby, a shared landscaped courtyard, a fitness center, and a spa.
