The “Law & Order: SVU” star and her husband, actor Peter Hermann, who bought the stunning Upper West Side brownstone for $10.7 million in 2012, had hoped to make it a $10.75 million brownstone when they put it on the market last fall. After a price cut to an unprofitable $9.75 million, the six-story, 6,000+ square-foot home at 45 West 84th Street is in contract, the New York Post reports. The couple reportedly decided to sell because their family needs have changed, though they’ve said they plan on staying in their beloved neighborhood.
The brownstone’s colorful interiors come courtesy of a collaboration with designer Jeffrey Bilhuber. The home boasts an elevator, five bedrooms, six bathrooms and three powder rooms, and a vented laundry room. The main parlor floor has a gas fireplace and a modern, mirrored wall. Further along is a dining room/library that overlooks the kitchen below and the rear garden.
The garden level has another living area–and an eat-in kitchen that makes its own sunshine. The renovation added floor-to-ceiling casement windows to create a double-height space that leads to the landscaped garden.
The third floor features the master suite, a double walk-in closet and dressing room, a small terrace and a marble en-suite bath.
The fourth and fifth floors each have two bedrooms, each with their own bathroom; one has an adjacent terrace.
Perhaps the best part of the house is a top floor sun room possessed of both north- and south-facing terraces.
Back in 2008, Hargitay sold an equally stylish Chelsea penthouse for $8.15 million, and at a reported $500,000 per “Law & Order” episode, finding a spectacular new family home shouldn’t prove too difficult.
