Uma Thurman’s Gramercy Park duplex went into contract in May after hitting the market for $6.25 million less than two months prior. Considering the co-op at 1 Lexington Avenue came with five bedrooms, a classically elegant look, and a coveted key to the park, it’s no shock that it actually closed for $6.61 million, more than five percent over ask, according to the Observer, and well over the $2.65 million the actress paid for it in 2006.
1 Lexington Avenue
Less than two months after hitting the market for $6.25 million, Uma Thurman has sold her Gramercy Park duplex at 1 Lexington Avenue, reports the Observer. The actress moved into the co-op more than 15 years ago when she was still married to Ethan Hawke. They sold their unit after divorcing, but Thurman then bought this five-bedroom spread for $2.65 million in 2006, and spent five years renovating it into the classically elegant residence we see today.
Thurman lived at the prewar co-op for nearly 15 years, buying several additional units and combining them—while keeping a hand in the real estate game all the while, including a four-bedroom co-op at the venerable River House at 435 East 52nd Street, purchased from romance author Barbara Taylor Bradford in 2013 for $10 million. She’s finally parting ways with her Gramercy home to make that move uptown. The “Kill Bill” star reminisces in a NY Times interview about her family life in the building, “It was such a cozy place—it really was home for us.”
