"X-Files" and "Californication" star David Duchovny has been looking at Upper West Side apartments for the past few months, and he's finally settled on one—a 3BR, 3BA in Central Park West's The Ardsley that was listed for $6.25 million, The Real Deal reports. The corner unit features a private elevator, a wood-burning fireplace, a "very special terrace," and sweeping views. Here's the catch, though: Before Duchovny can enjoy his sweeping views, he'll have to get past The Ardsley's board, which infamously rejected Mariah Carey when she tried to buy Barbra Streisand's penthouse in 1999. Does Duchovny have what it takes to charm his way into a white-glove Central Park co-op? Has the board softened with time? The truth is out there. Somewhere.
