If we had to assign this Greenwich Village apartment to one of the “Sex and the City” gals it would have to be Charlotte for its classic and elegant design. But, in reality, it’s home to Candace Bushnell, the woman who wrote the newspaper column and book that inspired the world-famous show. The one-bedroom co-op at 45 East 9th Street was featured in Elle Decor in 2010 as a much more colorful and playful home. Two years later–following her divorce from New York City Ballet dancer Charles Askegard–she listed the place for $2.8 million and then as an $8,000/month rental. Now, three years later, the Observer reports that the listing is back with a very slight slight price chop to $2 million and its new formal look.

Located in one of the Village’s exclusive pre-war doorman co-ops, the apartment is situated on the top southeast corner of the building, providing for beautiful natural light and views. A nicely-sized foyer leads down a few steps to the double-height great room, which comes complete with arched windows, built-in bookshelves, and a wood-burning fireplace.

Off the opposite end of the foyer is the dining room, which can also serve as a den or media room thanks to more built-in bookshelves. Through the dining room is the kitchen. It’s on the smaller side, but still fits a good deal of cabinetry and a washer/dryer.

One of the listing agents for the home told the Observer that “the writer decided to sell because she wants to find a different apartment in a new neighborhood.” Sarah Jessica Parker also recently left the neighborhood, but Chris Noth (Mr. Big) still lives in 45 East 9th Street.
