SELLER: Mark Linn-Baker
LOCATION: New York City, NY
SIZE: (approx.) 1,300 square feet, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathrooms
YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Veteran stage and television actor Mark Linn-Baker — he probably best known to Old Timer TV watchers for his seven season stint on the hokey late ‘80s sitcom “Perfect Strangers” but more recently pooped up on “The Electric Company” and a couple of the various “Law & Order” programs — has sold his loft apartment in New York City’s Noho neighborhood for $1,712,500.
We’re not exactly sure when Mister Linn-Baker bought the 11th floor loft in a classic pre-war cast iron building on busy busy busy Broadyway but our research suggest it’s safe to say it was some time ago. Listing details don’t indicate square footage — Your Mama’s rudimentary calculations put it at about 1,300 — but does show there are 11 foot ceilings and original solid oak floors, exposed brick walls, both south and west exposures and a massive sky light that soars to 24 feet high.
The 60-ish foot long open plan living space has a small (but windowed) kitchen at one end, a good-sized dining area and a greenhouse space under the sky-light in the middle and a roomy living room with a full wall of built-in bookshelves with library ladder.
There are two internal bedroom spaces — they only have “windows” that open into the common living space — and a large and also windowless bathroom with double sink vanity and laundry area.
As far as this property gossip can tell Mister Linn-Baker and his new-ish second wife Miz Justus have set up camp in a two-bedroom and two-bathroom co-operative apartment in Manhattan’s Hudson Heights ‘hood that property records show they picked up in July 2012 for $835,000.
