YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Dedicated and appreciated New York City informant Polly Wannacracker kindly let Your Mama know — and property records confirm — that Zachary Quinto and his substantially younger model man-friend Miles McMillan have taken their relationship to the next level with the $3,162,500 purchase of a renovated loft in lower Manhattan’s rapidly gentrified NoHo neighborhood.
The film, television and stage actor has catted around Tinseltown since the early 2000s and got his proverbial big break in 2007 when he was cast as Spock on the J.J. Abrahms reboot of the “Star Trek” franchise. Since then Mister Quinto has appeared in a slew of movies and television shows including “American Horror Story,” a boob-toob role that earned him an Emmy nomination in 2013. The busy actor has a handful of projects in various stages of production including a LisaCholodenko-directed television mini-series (“The Slap”) and the 13th installment of the apparently never-ending “Star Trek” franchise.
Digital marketing materials show a key-lock elevator opens directly into the kitchen area of the completely renovated 2,195-square-foot full-floor loft located on a higher floor of a narrow, seven-unit building that’s nearly 100 years old. The 25-foot wide and 23-foot long living/dining space has a full wall of floor-to-ceiling built-in bookshelves along one wall and a long row of low storage cabinets on the opposite wall. Four north-facing windows have a head on view of the busy firehouse across the street and the only medium-high ceiling is crossed by series of thin wood beams and punctuated by a grid of nine, cylindrical light fixtures.
The galley kitchen isn’t especially large but is equipped with custom wood cabinetry, high-grade stainless steel appliances and a fair amount of stainless steel counter tops. The total lack of overhead cabinetry or shelving for dish and food storage was a choice Your Mama realizes not everyone would make or can appreciate but the situation, in our humble and utterly meaningless opinion, is somewhat mitigated by the reasonably roomy walk in pantry.
A wide, multi-level gallery with half bathroom and compact laundry closet runs down the center of the apartment and leads back to the bedrooms. The bi-level second bedroom has brick walls painted white and direct access to a private bathroom while the adjacent master bedroom, a tiny bit smaller than the second bedroom, also has brick walls painted white as well as a wee walk-in closet plus additional built-in storage under the windows and a spacious attached bathroom decked out with double sinks, soaking tub and over-sized shower space.
Other features of note, as per listing details, include (wonderful) wide plank walnut floors that run throughout the loft, central heat and a/c systems, a common roof deck, a private 200-square-foot storage room in the basement, and “low monthly maintenance” charges of $1,767.
In October Mister Quinto sold a fully renovated late 1940s bungalow in L.A.’s Los Feliz area for $1,268,000, well over the $1.165 million asking price and significantly more than the $865,000 he paid for the 1,500-square-foot place in 2008.
