It’s been two-and-a-half years since Rosie O’Donnell sold her chic Greenwich Village penthouse for $9 million, presumably spending more time at her other home in Nyack. But it looks like she’s ready to move back to NYC, as the Post says that she’s been house hunting on the Upper West Side. O’Donnell reportedly checked out a $5.75 million spread at the historic artist co-op 27 West 67th Street–part of the West 67th Street Artists’ Colony History District. The ultra-mod duplex is currently owned by internationally famed artist Abby Leigh, whose late husband was Tony-winning “Man of La Mancha” composer Mitch Leigh.
The three-bedroom home was recently renovated, and as the listing describes, it’s “a work of art” in its own right. The great room with its 17-foot vaulted ceilings and massive, double-height windows is surely the focal point. It also boasts a large fireplace, floor-to-ceiling built-in bookcase with a ladder, and a floating steel staircase.
The kitchen/dining room area is also on this floor. Here you’ll find Ceasarstone counters, custom contemporary cabinetry, and enough room for a table that seats 10.
One bedroom is on the main level, while the other two are upstairs, in addition to a laundry room and hallway full of closets. The master has a walk-in closet and en-suite marble bath.
This is not Abby Leigh‘s only piece of real estate; back in 1999, she bought a townhouse at 49 East 68th Street for $1 million and, after listing it for $38 million in 2015, sold it for $20.4 million last year. In 2015, she paid $8 million for two apartments at 455 Central Park West, the former New York City Cancer Hospital. Assuming she’s now living there full time it makes sense that she’s unloading this apartment. Though Rosie O’Donnell declined to comment, the open, contemporary vibe of the home is not dissimilar from her previous Village pad.
