Update 6/23: 6sqft incorrectly reported that actress Robin Wright purchased this co-op. The actual buyer is a homonymous (and similarly wealthy) woman. An insider tells us that the actress owns a home in the Soho/Nolita area

In addition to being able to boast about her leading role on the hit Netflix series “House of Cards,” actress Robin Wright may soon be bragging about her latest real estate purchase, a five-room penthouse stunner located at 171 West 12th Street. According to city records released today, it appears that Wright has paid $3.025 million for a newly renovated pad inside a classic prewar in the heart of the West Village. Listing records show that the co-op was last priced at $2.495 million in March, which is considerably lower than the closing price. So is this penthouse really worth its premium? You be the judge…

Per the listing, the home has been renovated from floor to ceiling but still maintains much of its prewar charm. Standout features include 11-foot ceilings, French doors, casement windows, a wood-burning fireplace and a large living and dining room. Oak flooring and trim throughout the apartment elevate the elegance and the warmth of the spaces.

The kitchen has plenty of storage and is well lit by an oversized window. There’s also a Viking stove, Gaggeneau and Sub-Zero appliances, Lefroy Brooks fixtures and Carrera marble countertops.

The homes two bedrooms come with large California closets and good light—the master suite facing north, and the secondary bedroom facing south.
