Earlier this morning, 6sqft reported that “Grey’s Anatomy” actor Justin Chambers had spent $1.54 million on a rather bland East Village loft in Ageloff Tower at 172 East 4th Street. Interestingly, another big-name television star has also picked up a residence at Ageloff, this time at its sister building at 141 East 3rd Street. LLNYC reports that “Sex and the City” actress Cynthia Nixon is listed on property records for a similarly unassuming apartment that sold for $1.49 million. The buyers are Nixon and her wife Christine Marinoni and another couple, their friends Michael Growler and William Bowers (Growler worked as a dresser for the “Sex and the City” movies). Based on the joint ownership, and the fact that Nixon has owned a $3.25 million residence at 10 Bleecker Street since 2012, it’s likely that this is more of an investment.
After 13 years of dramatics on “Grey’s Anatomy,” you’d think actor Justin Chambers would opt for a bit more of a trophy apartment, but he and his wife Keisha (it’s actually her name on the property records) have spent $1.54 million on an unassuming East Village pad at Ageloff Tower, one of the few large, pre-war co-ops in the neighborhood. As the Observer point out, the couple will likely use the residence as a pied-à-terre since it’s only two bedrooms and they have five children and three dogs.
There’s a charming apartment available in Ageloff Towers now going for $725,000. This pre-war pad features modern amenities against the backdrop of original details like beamed ceilings, parquet floors, base molding and wainscoting. Generously sized for a one-bedroom, this unit is perfect for a young New Yorker looking to create a cozy home in one of the city’s most culturally distinct neighborhoods.
