While the Lincoln Square location of Isabella Rossellini’s new condo matches up with her larger-than-life theatrical personality, we’re hard pressed to see what exactly about this simple one-bedroom at the Element drew her in. According to city records filed yesterday afternoon, the famed actress has scooped up the apartment with private terrace for $1.275 million, which, based on our best guess, will serve as a pied-a-terre of sorts for Rossellini, who spends most of her days on her farm in Bellport, Long Island.
According to the original listing, the apartment has 9.5-foot ceilings, a pass-through kitchen, a large private terrace, and a large wall of windows that opens up the home to the outside world. There are also “designer finishes throughout” that are “second to none,” with the kitchen outfitted with imported custom Italian cabinetry and top tier appliances. Building amenities includes a 60-foot lap pool, a massage and treatment room, a fitness center, yoga/pilates studio, and indoor basketball and squash courts.
Although the apartment is about as plain as they get in NYC, we can imagine the actress adding plenty of personal flair to the home—or at least having her daughter make the trek uptown from her Fort Greene home to offer up some off-kilter decorating tips. But with all her new neighborhood has to offer, there’s really no need for Ms. Rossellini to stay inside anyhow.
