The Chelsea loft penthouse at 251 West 19th Street belonging to actor Stephen Dorff just hit the market for $3 million, reports the Wall Street Journal. The apartment’s best feature is undoubtedly its 850-square-foot private roof terrace with a wet bar/kitchen, outdoor shower and Empire State Building views. Dorff was a teen heartthrob in the ’90s–known for the boxing film, “The Power of One” (1992), and the 1998 superhero film “Blade”–and an indie It Boy of sorts in the following decade, appearing in cult films like John Waters’ “Cecil B. Demented” and slacker/grunge time capsule “S.F.W..” A stream of typical “evil guy” roles followed until 2010, when he starred in the Sofia Coppola film “Somewhere,” which, perhaps ironically, is the tale of a disaffected hotel-dwelling actor.
But Dorff has definitely worked hard if nothing else. And he may finally be seeing the benefits: WSJ quotes the actor in a 2013 interview as describing his less-than-savvy spending habits during the early days of his career: “After movies, I would rent these really expensive houses, and then I would run out of money and have to do another movie. I didn’t like that feeling of having to take something I didn’t want,” he says. “Now I’m into buying—forget this renting stuff.”
