Filmmaking rockstar Ethan Coen, half of the famed Coen Brothers duo, is selling his 1,800-square-foot co-op at 30 East 10th Street. The Post spotted the listing for the $2.34 million 1BR/1BA apartment, which Coen and his wife bought for $1.45 million back in 2004. The home a mezzanine loft and huge 28' by 27' living room, plus a separate laundry room, which may have been used as a darkroom by pervious owners. There are several walk-in closets, but they, along with the bathroom, are awkwardly located near the kitchen, not the bedroom. Design-wise, the home has "distinctive acanthus leaf ceiling medallions, the custom made wall of bookshelves with library ladder, and oak strip flooring throughout." The building has a shared roof deck and keyed elevator.
Kelly Ripa listed her Crosby Street penthouse just a couple weeks ago, and there's already a lot of interest in the apartment, most notably from David Chase, creator of the Sopranos. The sprawling 6,792-square-foot place has five bedrooms, four and a half baths, a jaw-dropping landscaped roofdeck with a fireplace, gym, and "a secluded grotto offering a soothing hot tub and outdoor shower." It's listed for $24.5 million.
UPDATE: Apparently Chase has settled on a different downtown pad. The Real Estalker reports that he purchased a penthouse formerly owned by Susan Sontag at Chelsea's London Terrace Gardens for $9.65 million. The 2,700-square-foot unit sits on the 20th floor and has three bedrooms, three and a half baths, three terraces, and three wood-burning fireplaces. Chase has been quite active in the NYC real estate market over the last few years, as he sold his West Chelsea townhouse in March 2012 after owning it for just a year.
