BUYER: Carlton Cuse
LOCATION: New York City, NY
PRICE: $4,100,000
SIZE: 1,690 square feet, 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: It was our celebrity real estate obsessed compadres over at Luxury Listings NYC who first let the cat out of the bag — and property records do indeed confirm — that veteran writer and showrunner Carlton Cuse shelled out $4.1 million for a swanky condo in a freshly renovated building in New York City’s spendy Flatiron District. Mister Cuse, nominated 10 Emmys and won one, was named in 2010 along with his creative partner Damon Lindelof by Time magazine as one of the world’s most influential people for his input as a writer and producer for the cult favorite drama/mystery program “Lost” and he currently shakes his money-maker as a writer and producer on the critically acclaimed horror/thriller cable series “Bates Motel,” for which his is also credited as one of the creators.

Online marketing materials show the mid-Manhattan condo, on a lower floor of a 24-story building erected in 1915 and newly reconceived by renown architect/designer Alan Wanzenberg, measures in at 1,690-square-feet with two well-separated en suite bedrooms and a total of 2.5 bathrooms. A narrow but none-the-less highly desirable entrance hall with generous coat closet drops into an open plan living/dining/kitchen space with nearly 11-foot ceilings, wide-plank oak floorboards, and two south-facing windows that ensure natural light most of the day. The humbly sized but extensively and expensively equipped kitchen features a 10.5-foot long peninsula counter with integrated snack bar, slab marble counter tops on designer cabinetry, and a complete array of name-brand stainless steel appliances. The master suite is plenty large enough to accommodate a small sitting area and includes a long dressing corridor with two closets — one of them a small walk-in — plus a marble slathered bathroom with double-sink vanity, soaking tub and glass fronted shower space. Positioned directly across from Madison Square Park, the ritzy complex offers residents full-time doormen and concierge services, a private fitness club with well-outfitted gender specific locker rooms, a 60-foot indoor lap pool, spa treatment room, yoga and Pilates studios, and a courtyard garden.

In addition to his newly acquired Manhattan condo, our research shows Mister Cuse additionally owns a 6,267-square-foot residence tucked privately up into the mountains south of Sherman Oaks, CA, that property records show was bought back in the mid-1980s for $670,000.
