Academy Award-winning actress Holly Hunter has just sold her Greenwich Village apartment, according to city records. The thespian put her Fifth Avenue apartment on the market in February, asking $8.7 million. The final sale price was $7.6 million.
The adorable home is situated high up in the 11-floor building at 43 Fifth Avenue, a 1905 Beaux Arts “masterpiece”. The apartment features restored original wood moldings and window trim. Additional touches include stained glass and a fireplace. There’s also a large kitchen with an abbey table capable of seating six. Three bedrooms and baths, along with two windowed offices and a parlor complete the beautiful place.
And to add some more celebrity flavor to the home, it’s worth noting that Hunter purchased the home from another Academy Award winner. Julia Roberts sold the 3,000-square-foot co-op to Ms. Hunter for $4.1 million back in 2005. So the new owner has a lot to brag to her friends about. Although, those bragging rights come at a premium as the house nearly doubled in value since Ms. Hunter initially purchased it.
