Emmy-award winning actor, Tony Shalhoub, who played the main character on the hit television shoe Monk is making his way to the Upper West Side. According to Luxury Listings NYC, Shalhoub and his wife purchased a two-bedroom co-op on West 81st Street for $3.995 million.
According to its listing description, the building in which the airy apartment resides was designed in 1930 by esteemed architect Emery Roth, thus explaining its “timeless beauty.” It is quite charming but in such a subtle sort of way, with so many of its pre-war details in place.
The sprawling nine-foot ceilings happen to be beamed with accompanying walls decorated in crown and base molding. The hardwood flooring sports a herringbone pattern and the living room has the signature of pre-war design—a decorative fireplace. Other offerings include French doors, shutters, oversized windows, an updated kitchen with a washer/dryer unit, and a generous amount of closets.
With all that in place, what could possibly make this space any more adorable? Well, the outdoor terrace is certainly gawk-worthy. After all, it does span across a combined 62 feet with enough width for a small table to sit and enjoy a nice cup of coffee or so while enjoying the partial view of Central Park. Not bad at all for $4 million.
