Cue a deep, British-accented voiceprobably one of the best unleashed on small screen or stage. "Captain's Log... One Upper West Side penthouse apartment with two bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and a giant terrace with Central Park views..." Or that's how we'd imagine "Star Trek" impresario Patrick Stewart would announce the landing of his erstwhile pied-a-terre on the market, asking $3,795,000.
Stewart and his then-wife, TV producer Wendy Neuss, bought the co-op at Emery Roth-designed 118 West 79th Street, between Columbus and Amsterdam avenues, in 2003 for $1.8 million. Neuss has lived in the non-space age home full-time since the couple's divorce, which happened the year of the purchase, but just told the Times that "circumstances have changed," hence the sale. (Stewart must not have spent much time there, but it's fun to dream.) Nuess lauds the landscaping and the views from the 1,100-square-foot terrace.
