Late British actor Alan Rickman, known for, among countless other roles, playing  Severus Snape in the Harry Potter series, lived primarily in England, but he had a great affinity for New York City. When he performed on Broadway (he was nominated for a Tony Award for his role in Noel Coward’s Private Lives) he resided in his pied-à-terre in the West Village. After his passing in 2016, his estate has now listed the one-bedroom condo at 321 West 13th Street for $1,695,000. According to brokerage Compass, Rickman had “impeccable taste and a keen sense of design,” which is shown in the gut renovation he undertook after purchasing the top-floor apartment for $995,000 in 2009.

Rickman worked with local firm Lembo Design on the renovation. The living space has a bit of an industrial vibe with exposed beam ceilings, whitewashed brick walls, and five oversized, south-facing windows. The wood-burning fireplace and its metal mantle add to the aesthetic. In the kitchen, there’s a Caesarstone counter that seats four, glass-front cabinets, a panelled Subzero refrigerator with freezer drawers, Miele cooktop and oven, Fisher Paykel dishwasher drawers, and floor-to-ceiling storage.

Down a small hallway is the bedroom suite, which has a full wall of custom closets. The bathroom has a clawfoot tub, glass walk-in shower, linen closet, and a washer/dryer.

The building is between 8th and 9th Avenues, on the border of the West Village and Meatpacking District. There are just three lofts per floor, and the condo offers a roof deck and a full-time super.
