Candace Bushnell Lists Manhattan Co-op

Sexpot writer and television producer Candace Bushnell — it was her racy, mid-’90s column in the New York Observer that launched the iconic “Sex in the City” series — has listed her casually glam co-operative apartment in a low-key yet properly soigne pre-war complex in New York City’s Greenwich Village with an asking price of just a wisp under $2.65 million.

The elegantly proportioned one bedroom and 1.5 bathroom apartment, fawned over in Elle Decor a few years ago but decoratively refreshed since then, opens to an unusually generous foyer, and steps down to a high-ceilinged and chandelier-lit living room with built-in bookshelves, fireplace and a trio of arched, south-facing windows. There are a couple of china/linen closets, plus more bookshelves in the separate dining room that connects to a characteristically compact kitchen — this is New York City, after all — but stylishly outfitted with flannel gray countertops, and conveniently equipped with a stacked washer and dryer.

This is not the first time the modern-day pulp novelist — her latest tome, “Killing Monica,” was released this year to a brutal surfeit of negative reviews — and her ex-husband, accomplished ballet dancer Charles Askegard, have attempted to sell their former love nest: In 2012, after their divorce was finalized, it was unsuccessfully listed at $2.8 million, and later made available for rent at eight grand a month. Other notable residents of the full-service building include fashion and design world bon vivants Simon Doonan and Jonathan Adler and — coincidentally enough — Mr. Big himself, Chris Noth. Ms. Bushnell also maintains a country spread in Connecticut’s beautifully pastoral Litchfield County that property records show she picked up in 2005 for a tetch more than $660,000.
