Rodents be damned–despite being sued by their condo board for an alleged bedbug and rat infestation last year, “This American Life” host Ira Glass and his wife Anaheed Alani have sold their renovated Chelsea apartment at 159 West 24th Street for $1.65 million. They bought the apartment in 2012 for $1,265,000 and put it on the market this past November for $1.75 million, with the listing stating that the home was “unoccupied.”
We can see why the apartment sold despite the controversy. It’s super chich and sleek, with rustic wide plank Castle Combe oak floors, a contemporary kitchen with ivory cabinets and python quartzite counters, and a spacious master bedroom with a large walk-in closet and pass-through dressing room.
As 6sqft previously reported, the couple got hit with a lawsuit from their Board after they allegedly refused to give management access to deal with the issue, which supposedly led to a building-wide infestation that forced other tenants out of their homes. At the time, though, Glass said, “My understanding is another apartment in the building has bedbugs. We paid a bunch of money for exterminators. As far as I know, it’s been resolved. We’re done.” And now–he is really is.
