Uma Thurman’s Gramercy Park duplex went into contract in May after hitting the market for $6.25 million less than two months prior. Considering the co-op at 1 Lexington Avenue came with five bedrooms, a classically elegant look, and a coveted key to the park, it’s no shock that it actually closed for $6.61 million, more than five percent over ask, according to the Observer, and well over the $2.65 million the actress paid for it in 2006.
Thurman and ex-husband Ethan Hawke moved into the pre-war co-op building more than 15 years ago, but after divorcing, she traded their marital nest for this 2,800-square-foot spread, embarking on a five-year renovation that left a mix of pre-war details and mid-centrury modern design.
Throughout the home are 10-foot ceilings, oak herringbone floors, and delicate moldings. An entry gallery leads to the open living space, which has pocket doors separating it from a library and an additional sitting room.
The other side of the living room leads to the formal dining room, which has French doors that open to a terrace overlooking the park. Through here is the kitchen with its marble and live-edge black walnut entertaining island, walnut countertops, original tin ceilings, and a custom fleur-de-lis tiled hood
The main floor holds the first of two (!) master suites along with an additional bedroom.
The other extremely lavish master is upstairs and boasts horsehair upholstered walls and a bathroom modeled after a Turkish bath, complete with a steam shower, arched tiled ceiling, soaking tub, and marble slab sitting area. The remaining two bedrooms are also on this floor.
As 6sqft previously shared:
Though Thurman told the Times that the apartment “was such a cozy place–it really was home for us,” she bought a $10 million co-op in the venerable River House at 435 East 52nd Street in 2013 (she actually purchased it from romance author Barbara Taylor Bradford) where she now resides. Of the sale she said, “my past will be somebody else’s future.”
