Jessica Lange is movin’ on up. According to city property records first spotted by The Real Deal, the Academy-award winning actress bought the two-bedroom co-op directly above her current home in 1 Fifth Avenue. Lange paid $3.3 million, more than $500,000 under the asking price, for the sun-filled unit, which is much in need of updating. But this won’t be a problem if the speculation that she’s looking to combine the two apartments is true.
Lange moved into the building in 2005 when she bought the unit below, 9F, for $3.4 million. Listed in April by broker Terry Sciubba, of Sea Cliff-based Sherlock Homes Realty Corp, 10F was asking $3.9 million. The unit has a hexagonal entry foyer and sitting room, a formal dining room, and living room. There’s also a master bedroom with a very-far-from “master” bath.
The 1927 pre-war building was designed by Harvey Wiley Corbeth and has been called home by many celebrities over the years, including Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter, Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, Blythe Danner, and “Scarface” director Brian De Palma.
