Michael C. Hall Pays Above Asking Price for Lower Manhattan Condo

BUYER: Michael C. Hall
LOCATION: New York City, NY
PRICE: $4.28 million
SIZE: 1,586 square feet, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: A remarkably brief digital missive from newbie New York City real estate snitch Beau Nansuh let us know that America’s favorite faux serial killer, Michael C. Hall, shelled out $4.28 million — $85,000 more than the official $4.195 million asking price — for a luxury condo at the gigantic, multi-building Greenwich Lane complex on a tree-lined street in New York City’s frightfully pricey West Village. Online marketing materials show the efficiently organized and expensively finished two-bedroom and two bathroom condo spans 1,586 square feet with beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, and “painted wood and stainless steel finishes [that] invoke the highly crafted style of early modern industrial architecture.” Presumably Mister Hall will occupy the premises with his brand-new third wife, writer and editor Morgan MacGregor.

A petite but proper foyer links the front door to an essentially square, 400-ish-square-foot combination living and dining room that features a magnificently over-sized pair of north-facing, “newly enlarged, double-hung mullioned windows.” The U-shaped kitchen, just off the foyer and open to the living/dining area over a long stretch of white marble-topped counter, according to the floor plan, has marble-tiled backsplashes and the usual array of stainless steel name-brand appliances typically found in freshly rehabbed multimillion-dollar condos in lower Manhattan. The bedrooms were wisely placed on opposite sides of the living room for maximum privacy. The guest bedroom, off a short corridor with laundry closet and hall bathroom, has a punishingly puny closet, while the slightly larger master bedrooms has two generous walk-in closets and a spacious bathroom with marble mosaic floors, double-sink vanity, soaking tub and separate glass-fronted shower space.

Residents of the newly and poshly refurbished Greenwich Lane complex pay sky-high common charges — Mister Hall’s will run $2,710 per month, not including taxes, according to online marketing materials — that provide them with a comprehensive menu of five-star amenities: 24-hour attended lobbies; lushly planted central courtyard; children’s play room; 21-seat screening room; private dining room with guest chef’s kitchen; and an extensive fitness complex with yoga and spa treatment rooms, lap-length indoor swimming pool and hot tub, and a golf simulator.

Mister Hall, a Golden Globe winner and seven-time Emmy nominee who took over a starring role on Broadway’s “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” in 2014 and 2015 and recently completed a short run of the “almost incomprehensible and oddly intriguing” Off Broadway production “Lazurus,” which features music from David Bowie’s last album “Blackstar,” has been much in the celebrity property gossip columns lately as he recently listed and likety-split sold his walled, gated and extensively renovated 1920s Spanish Colonial micro-compound in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles for its full $4.85 million asking price.
