Parker Posey certainly has good taste in real estate. She first landed on our apartment-porn radar for her chic East Village apartment, which she bought back in 2008. (The home is now owned by actor Alexander Skarsgärd.) She then dropped $1.35 million on a slightly more classic co-op in Greenwich Village. After personally modeling in the listing photos, she unloaded this apartment in 2016. We’re not sure where she’s been for the past three years, but as of this week, she is a proud new Chelsea resident. According to the Post, Posey dropped $1.5 million on this super-cute and character-filled duplex at 365 West 19th Street. Not only does it have charming details like a wood-burning brick fireplace and huge half-moon window, but there’s a private roof deck.
Have a looksie
Alexander Skarsgärd, an Emmy-nominee for his role in “Big Little Lies” and star of “True Blood,” has just purchased a co-op at 119 East 10th Street for $2.3 million, $300,000 over the asking price (h/t LLNYC). The East Village apartment once belonged to actress Parker Posey who sold it in 2008 for $1.3 million. Chloe Sevigny also lived in the same building for a few years before making the move to Brooklyn in 2013. The newly-single Swedish actor, who first looked at a penthouse at 415 East 6th Street back in December, chose the historic loft-like one-bedroom, which features wood-beamed ceilings, oversized windows and a communal garden, instead.
Before moving to a very classic Greenwich Village co-op (which she sold last summer for $1.45 million), actress Parker Posey lived in a much more trendy space in the East Village. In fact, she lived in the same building, 119 East 10th Street, as fellow indie darling Chloe Sevigny who sold her pad in 2013. Posey made the move much earlier, in 2008, when she offloaded the loft-like apartment for $1.3 million. It’s now back on the market for $2 million, sporting a loft-like vibe (open layout, exposed brick and ceilings beams) and an eclectic collection of hip furniture and art.
Get a look around
Parker Posey caught people’s attention when she posed in the listing photos for her Greenwich Village co-op at 30 Fifth Avenue. Take a look at the indie actress, who is currently celebrating the release of her new film “Café Society,” lounging in her bedroom, reading Mary Louise Parker’s “Dear Mr. You” along with her Bichon Frise Gracie. Though unusual, the tactic must’ve worked, because the Observer reports that in less than two months the $1.45 million pad has gone into contract.

After the recent debacle when Ta-Nehisi Coates’ purchase of a Prospect-Lefferts Garden townhouse went public, and he subsequently penned an essay on why he wouldn’t be moving in after all, there’s been a debate surrounding how much privacy celeb real estate buyers are entitled to. But quirky Indie actress Parker Posey is clearly not concerned, considering she’s posing in the listing photos for her Greenwich Village co-op.
The $1.45 million listing at 30 Fifth Avenue hasn’t gone public yet, but Curbed has obtained the photos, which show the now-blonde Posey lounging in her bedroom, reading Mary Louise Parker’s “Dear Mr. You” along with her Bichon Frise Gracie.
