X Files star David Duchovny is selling his Upper West Side Manhattan apartment for $7.5 million.
According to Realtor.Com, the Co-Op apartment is on the 19th floor of the Ardsley Building located at 15 Central Park West. It comes with a private elevator landing and opens to a wide gallery entry with a large round mirror, bench, and storage. The dark wood herringbone flooring flows throughout, and leads to a living room that overlooks Central Park. Highlights of the living space include a wood-burning fireplace and built-in bookshelves. The apartment has three bedrooms and a small terrace with a view of the park.
The New York Post reports that David Duchovny paid $6 million for the apartment in 2012. So the sale price comes to only a 25% return on investment over nine years. Not so much, especially considering that this is a luxury Manhattan apartment in a desirable location.
According to Corcoran, The Ardsley was conceived by legendary architect Emory Roth in 1931 and is considered one of Central Park West’s most striking Art Deco structures. Twenty-two stories tall, this full-service established cooperative features a light brick façade with contrasting horizontal strips of black brick, inspired by the ancient Maya. The base of the building has a zigzag cast stone frieze. Upper floors are recessed, several with cantilevered balconies. Ardsley residences are known for their spacious layouts, beamed ceilings, custom tile work, period door hardware and ample closet space. A full-time doorman and concierge stand ready as you enter the magnificent marble lobby. Shareholder amenities include a lending library, new windowed fitness center, play room. Pets allowed upon approval. Converted into a co-operative in 1971, the Ardsley is comprised of 183 apartments.
