The Upper West Side townhouse that has been featured in multiple episodes of Law and Order has sold after being put on the market back in January, which gives us another excuse to stare at its wood-paneled interiors for a while. Ooooh. Pretty.
The four-story, 5,500-square-foot house was built in 1888 and stayed in the family of its original owner until 1981, when it was purchased fro $450,000 by actors Peter Maloney and Kristin Griffith, who spent an additional $2 million on the renovation that would eventually win it television fame. When they listed the house earlier this year they were asking $8.75 million, but the new owner, Olivier Cassegrain, got it for a 20 percent discount at $7 million. Cassegrain is a managing director at the Longchamp luxury leather goods company, which his family founded.
