After first hitting the market last September, Jessica Chastain’s lovely Greenwich Village duplex has finally found a buyer according to city records. The actress bought the renovated two-bedroom at 250 Mercer Street in 2012 for $1.2 million and initially listed it as an $11,500/month rental before re-listing it for sale for $1.8 million in April. The buyer paid slightly over ask at $1.9 million.

The 1,284-square-foot, open-concept spread has 10.5-foot ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, and a wide-oak circular staircase. Downstairs is the living area, dining room, and kitchen, and upstairs is the master bedroom and second bedroom, both of which have cedar closets, and the gut-renovated, “spectacular” bathroom that boasts radiant heat floors, a free-standing Lefroy Brooks polished metal tub, and a separate steam shower.

As 6sqft previously reported, Chastain’s reason for unloading the apartment was likely because she picked up a more lavish, larger residence at the historic Osborne co-op in March 2015. The $5.1 million Midtown West apartment was formerly owned by famed composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein for more than a decade. She recently opened up the home, which she described as “warm and cozy glory,” to Architectural Digest.
