Academy Award-nominated actress Jessica Chastain got luck with her most recent foray into New York real estate. The actress's two-bedroom, two-bathroom Greenwich Village duplex has gone into contract after being listed for just a little more than a month, according to the New York Observer. Chastain originally listed the 1,284 square-foot co-op as a rental, asking $11,500 a month and later slashed the asking price down to $7,995/month furnished or $8,450/month unfurnished; while there's no word yet on the actual amount she netted, the last asking price for the apartment was $1.8 million.
The prewar apartment, located at 250 Mercer Street, is charmingly decorated with mellowing tones of purple and nude throughout and features ten-and-a-half foot ceilings, an open kitchen, spiral staircase, and a wood-burning fireplace.
As for Chastain, she has made the trip uptown and will be dwelling in her new nine-room co-op at 205 West 57th Street that she and her boyfriend purchased for $5.2 million.
