Television star Debra Messing has put down $5.45 million for an Upper East Side apartment in Manhattan.
The sultry red head proved that she is also a good negotiator as the price was dropped from $5.9 million, saving her $450, 000.
Most people remember the Brooklyn native from her hit 90s sitcom Will and Grace which ran for eight years. Messing can currently be seen on NBC’s The Mysteries of Laura in which she plays an NYPD homicide detective who tries to maintain a sense of balance between work and her crazy home life. The critics don’t like it and the ratings aren’t so good, but NBC picked the new show up for a full season anyway.
Located on the 8th floor of 3 East 84th Street, the apartment was only on the market for 37 days. It has nine rooms, 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The entrance is from a private landing and into a square gallery off of which are found both the entertaining and living quarters. The living room has 10 foot high ceilings, a wood burning fireplace and French door windows which open to a Juliette balcony providing extra natural sun light. The adjacent almost square library has custom built ins and a bay window facing South.
Between the living room and kitchen is a grand and formal dining room with windows on two sides, including French door windows facing north. The windowed, eat in kitchen is renovated with white shaker cabinets and natural stone counter tops. There is also a built-in office area in the kitchen, a vented washer/dryer and wine refrigerator.
The bedroom wing is separate with 3 large bedrooms and a large staff room. The private corner master suite has a vast walk in closet, dressing room, and en-suite master bathroom with a tub and double sinks. Two other bedrooms are shared by an en-suite bathroom. There is spacious staff room with an en suite bath which could easily be a fourth bedroom.
3 East 84th Street was designed by Raymond Hood, the senior architect for Rockefeller Center and the Daily News building. Services include a live in super, doorman, and a private storage bin that transfers with the apartment as well as bike storage.
