YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: With “Mad Men” at the tail end of its blazingly successful seven-season run, the series most prodigiously bullet-bra-ed and flame-tressed star Christina Hendricks — who recently went strawberry blond to hawk hair dye for Clairol — and her New York City-born and bred husband, actor Geoffrey Arend, have shelled out $1.155 million for a small but hardly inexpensive pied-a-terre in a gigantic, full-service condo complex in Midtown Manhattan.
The 810-square-foot pre-war apartment at the Parc Vendome complex features a proper foyer with inlaid terra cotta tile floor, living/dining room with oak floors casement windows and a decorative fireplace flanked by arched alcoves, a typically small but recently renovated and efficiently organized kitchen, a compact office/study in what was originally a large walk-in closet, one good-sized bedroom with walk-in closet and one pretty average — not to mention windowless — bathroom off the foyer.
Besides easy access to Columbus Circle, Fifth Avenue and all the shops and bars in Hells Kitchen/Clinton, Parc Vendome residents are provided extensive amenities that include four fully-staffed lobbies, a package room, a large central English tea garden, a couple of rooftop terraces, billiard and music rooms, a book-stocked library, a club room and a private dining room and separate banquet hall that both have access to a catering kitchen.
The Hendricks-Arends also maintain a clapboard sided Colonial on a double-lot spread in Los Angeles’ hipster-approved Silver Lake area that they acquired over the summer of 2011 for $1.7 million.
