Star of “The Good Wife” Alan Cumming has sold his four-bedroom East Village co-op at 297 East 10th Street in just a month’s time, the Observer tells us. After reports that he and his husband, graphic designer Grant Shaffer, were renovating a nearby 19th century townhouse they bought in 2013 for or $4.65 million, the couple listed the charming East Village apartment for $2.2 million last month. They bought the home on the third floor of a brick rowhouse in 2005 for $1.7 million and undertook some renovations, but were sure to maintain the historic details like an original wood-burning fireplace with a carved wooden mantel, wide-plank hardwood floors, architectural moldings, and beautiful built-ins.

“The Good Wife” star Alan Cumming is selling the East Village apartment that stole his heart when the Scottish-born actor first saw it back in 2005. Listed for $2.2 million, the four-bedroom co-op at 297 East 10th Street overlooking Tompkins Square Park definitely looks like the kind of place you could call home for at least a few years, a rare thing in the otherwise great neighborhood. The Wall Street Journal reports that Cumming and husband Grant Shaffer have been renovating a nearby 19th-century townhouse that they bought in 2013 for $4.65 million, and the time seemed right to part with this cozy co-op.
