After initially listing her Greenwich Village penthouse for $11 million in July 2013, Rosie O’Donnell has finally sold the chic four-bedroom home for the substantially lesser amount of $9 million, according to the Daily News.
O’Donnell bought the duplex apartment at 130 West 12th Street, part of the former St. Vincent’s Hospital complex, for $8.09 million in the summer of 2012. She then redecorated it with a combination of artsy, modern, and elegant furnishings. In addition to benefitting from Rosie’s design sense, the new owner will also get to take advantage of a 435-square-foot private terrace and views of both the Empire State Building and One World Trade Center.
Like the listing says, this 3,202-square-foot penthouse has the feel of a Village townhouse. The 37-foot entertaining area, accented with oak wood floors, has a wall of oversized windows with three French doors that open to the huge terrace.
The large kitchen has even more windows, along with a center island, high-end appliances, a butler’s pantry and a wine cooler. The first level of the apartment also houses a fourth bedroom/media room, while the master suite and two more bedrooms are on the second floor.
Another selling point of the home is that it’s been outfitted with the latest in green technologies, including an air filtration system, low VOC paint and a state-of-the-art four-pipe fan-coil system for heating and cooling. When the building was converted to condos it won the 2012 Sustainable Design Award by Global Green USA and was awarded LEED Gold status. We’re not sure why O’Donnell was so eager to unload the penthouse, but maybe she’s looking to spend more time with her family in her Nyack, New York home.
