Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s Co-op Hits The Market For $1.5M

“Modern Family” star Jesse Tyler Ferguson is unloading his one-bedroom co-op in Gramercy Park for $1.5 million, just over three years after buying it. The actor and his husband, Justin Mikita, picked up the pad, which has been gut-renovated, in 2015 for just over $1.23 million. The home at 200 East 16th Street is a combination of two studio units, and there’s an option to buy the apartment fully furnished.

The renovation added a pop of color with calming blue walls found throughout the apartment, which helped modernize the space. The kitchen features Carrara marble counters, a Viking stove and Subzero fridge. There’s also a wine fridge and hidden pantry closet.

Situated next to the kitchen, the living room boasts beamed ceilings and a private, custom-built reading nook. The nook includes built-in storage and beautiful French doors.

The bedroom is quite spacious, with enough room for large pieces of furniture, including a king bed. Plus, the room has three large closets, practically unheard of in most city dwellings.

Perfect for two, the master bedroom features double marble vanities and plenty of storage. The second guest bathroom has custom lighting and an impressive arched entryway.

Amenities of the co-op include a 24-hour doorman, live-in super, gym with Peloton bike, laundry room and storage for bikes. Found on a tree-lined block in Gramercy Park, the building is located just steps away from Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and all of Union Square.

Park Avenue Apartment Proves That Beautiful Things Come In Tiny Packages

Most tiny New York apartments are terrifying. But in the right hands, they can be turned into something amazing. That’s the case for this Park Avenue South condo, which is owned by interior designer Amir Khamneipur and which he listed today for $1.775 million.

Though the place comes in at less than 700 square feet (669 to be exact), cleverly placed windows and mirrors make it seem much, much bigger. The home was featured in the July issue of “House, Beautiful” and a 2014 article in the “Wall Street Journal,” where Khamneipur described all the tips and tricks he used to give the small apartment the feeling of space.  “I would rather live in a custom jewel box than a badly designed mansion,” he told “House, Beautiful.” “This apartment brings me such joy.”

The apartment has one bedroom, one and a half bathrooms, 14-foot ceilings, 10-foot doors and custom, double-height cabinetry. Everything in the space was custom-designed by Khamneipur, and listing agent Claudia Saez-Fromm of Town Residential tellsLLNYC that a buyer may be able to negotiate with Khamneipur to include the furniture with the sale.

Saez-Fromm says Khamneipur decided to sell because he received  interest in the apartment after the “House, Beautiful” piece and he wants to upgrade to a two-bedroom.

A Blessed Pair: Two Manhattan Townhomes Owned by Nuns Sell for $18.8 Million

Built in 1850, the houses were later combined to create a mega-mansion

Two Manhattan townhomes occupied by nuns sold for $18.8 million in a deal that closed Wednesday, Mansion Global has learned.

The Greek Revival-style townhomes, located at 236 and 238 East 15th St. in Gramercy, were built in 1850. The Missionary Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary acquired the property in the early 1940s, according to listing agent Lisa Kobiolke of Compass.

The townhomes were later combined to create one 52-foot-wide mansion with 18,720 square feet of living space. There are a total of 20 bedrooms and 20 bathrooms. The property includes a garden.

By the 1960s, the sisterhood’s ranks had dwindled, and it began renting rooms to young women and other congregations, as reported by the New York Times. By June, only one sister lived there, and so the order put the property up for sale. It listed at $19.75 million about two months ago.

The buyer intends to live in one of the townhomes with her family and transform the other into student housing to generate income, according to Ms. Kobiolke.

The homes were originally occupied by Lewis L. Squires, a local ship chandler, and Mahlon Day, a printer and seller of children’s books, before they were acquired by the sisterhood.

Some of the proceeds of the sale will pay for the sisters’ relocation to the Bronx, while the remainder will be donated to missions around the world, according to Ms. Kobiolke.
