Eight-time Academy Award-winning director and producer Danny Boyle (his credits include “Slumdog Millionaire,” “Trainspotting,” “28 Days Later,” and “Steve Jobs,” and he was the artistic director for the 2012 Olympics) has put his sunny Chelsea co-op on the market for $2.15 million, according to LL NYC. The triplex penthouse at 334 West 19th Street looks a bit bland for such an A-lister, but as Luxury Listings explains, Boyle bought the apartment in 2010 for $1.7 million (in a reported all-cash transaction), and then transferred it to his daughter Caitlin in 2014.

The apartment has three bedrooms, a wood-burning fireplace in the living room, a modernized kitchen, and a glass solarium on the top floor that leads to a 200-square-foot terrace. This space is currently configured as the third bedroom, but it can also be used as an office or bonus room. The second floor holds the master suite and second bedroom.

Caitlin Boyle was a student at Parson’s when her father bought the penthouse, but reports from 2013 said she was working for Conde Naste. Perhaps a job switch is the reason they’ve decided to list.
