Tribeca apartment that was once home to Keira Knightley sells for $6M

The stunning three-bedroom is also home to the neighborhood’s best staircase

Study in Keira Knightly’s former Jay Street Apartment

After years on the market, the gorgeous Tribeca three-bedroom once rented by Keira Knightley has finally sold for $6 million—down from its most recent asking price of $6.6 million, the New York Post reports, and way, way down from its original ask of $8.4 million when it first hit the market (under a different brokerage) back in 2009.

It got a revamp by its current owner, and the 3,820-square-foot duplex is saturated with architectural details, from the elevated foyer (complete with a built-in cast-iron sculpture) to the floor-to-ceiling Japanese-style sliding doors and the artfully massive exposed beams. It’s also home to Tribeca’s best staircase, a cast iron and mahogany stunner backed by an oxidized, hand-crafted copper screen.

There’s also a 900-square-foot private landscaped patio (with heated limestone flooring, obviously), which, the Post notes, boasts a day bed at the base of a “25-foot-high sculpture framed by concrete columns with back-lit plexiglas panels made by the owner.”

More practically, the apartment is also equipped with a chef’s kitchen and dining bar for seven, and a respectable two and a half bathrooms.
