Gemma Ward Sends NYC Apartment Down the Catwalk

SELLER: Gemma Ward
LOCATION: New York City, NY
PRICE: $2,250,000
SIZE: 1,200 square feet (or so), 2-3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: It was Polly Wannacracker, our eagle-eyed gal on the street in the Big Apple, who snitched to Your Mama that Australian born model turned budding movie actress Gemma Ward (“The Great Gatsby,” “Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides”) has her cooperative apartment in the once gritty now impossibly trendy and ever more expensive East Village on the market at $2.25 million.

Property records show the cat-eyed and pouty-mouthed catwalker, now 27 and once the youngest model to appear on the cover of Vogue, acquired the three-unit combination crib in a prewar building near Cooper Square in June 2007 for $1.525 million. A little research on the internets reveals this isn’t the first time at the real estate fair for Miss Ward; She had the apartment up for sale on the open market for about six weeks in late summer/early fall 2012 for $1.995 million and up for rent in early 2014 for $7,695 a month.

Current listing details show the somewhat unusually laid out apartment has two to three bedrooms and two renovated bathrooms in an unknown amount of square footage that Your Mama unscientifically calculated using measurements on the floor plan to be somewhere in the area of 1,200-square-feet.

A cozy, nook-like living room just off the front door has large, south facing windows and a super-sized chocolate brown sectional sofa. Like most kitchens in New York City, Miss Ward’s isn’t particularly big but it is well lit via a huge arched window and well equipped with commercial-style stainless steel appliances, glass back splashes, a porcelain farmhouse sink and neutral toned stone counter tops.

The second bedroom, off the dining room, has a full wall of built-in cabinetry and shelving with integrated desk area that makes it a perfect home office and the master bedroom, at the opposite end of the apartment off the living room, has a private and windowed bathroom, Juliet balcony, and a long if shallow dressing area custom fitted with a cornucopia of floor-to-ceiling drawers and wardrobes.

Two sets of cast iron an glass French doors separate the combined entry/dining space from a den/third bedroom with another Juliet balcony, wet bar, laundry closet and a wonderfully quirky and handy-dandy original, built-in dining set that folds up in to the wall.

No word on Miss Ward’s real estate plans but given that she and her male model man-friend David Letts made a baby late last year this property gossip would guess she’s headed for bigger and more family friendly digs.
