"Look at it," writes the tipster who submitted this listing for That's Rather Hideous consideration. "It has to win some kind of award." We would agree?and it turns out the apartment's backstory is pretty interesting, too. The condo is a combination of units 302 and 303 in the Mill Building on Williamsburg's "exclusive Northside." Both units were purchased by the one and only Agyness Deyn for $965,000 apiece in 2008. We learn from Wikipedia that model/actress/singer Deyn spells her first name that way on the advice of a numerology expert. Perhaps the same person had some input into the interior decorating, which seems like a mix of flea market finds, mirrors, and "the rarest onyx and marble stones and tiles imported from around the world," according to the brokerbabble. While broker Jared Seligman seems like a fit to list this place, imagining a buyer who'd pay $2.5 million is even harder than trying to figure out what's going on in the listing pics.
