In November, 2014, 6sqft reported that light installation artist James Turrell had sold an apartment at 26 Gramercy Park South for $2.1 million. The famed conceptual artist is based in Flagstaff, Arizona, so the sale didn’t come as much of a surprise. However, now it’s come to light (no pun intended) that he and his wife Kung Lim-Lee Turrell own more real estate in the neighborhood.

According to city records released today, Turrell has sold his personal apartment at 2 Gramercy Park West (an historic Italianate mansion known as the James Pinchot House that’s been divided into seven units) for $2,225,000. The artist’s former home is a full-floor residence that comes with a much-coveted key to the park, a private garden, and, not surprisingly, an enormous skylight.
