Molly Ringwald Sells East Village Walk-Up to Polish Prince

SELLER: Molly Ringwald
LOCATION: New York City, NY
PRICE: $1,700,000
SIZE: 2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: After just two months on the open market actress and chanteuse Molly Ringwald sold her fourth-floor walk-up apartment in a plummy pocket of New York City’s East Village for $1.7 million. Property records are vague as to when Miz Ringwald acquired the two-bedroom and 1.5 bathroom duplex apartment — it was sometime before 2004 — but they do reveal the new owner as Alexi Lubomirski, an accomplished and himself very photogenic fashion and celebrity photographer who also happens to be a Polish prince.

Listing details show the boho-chic apartment, on the top two floors of a fetching 1861 Anglo-Italianate row house on a pretty, tree-lined block in the Renwick Triangle section of the St. Marks Historic District, features 10-foot ceilings with exposed wood beams and a carved marble fireplace in the living room and marble mosaic floor tiles, utilitarian stainless steel counter tops, and a vintage range in the south-facing eat-in kitchen. The half bathroom on the lower floor, just of a short corridor that links the living room to the kitchen, could be converted to a full bathroom according to listing details and the two bedrooms upstairs — the larger with another carved marble fireplace and exposed brick wall — share a small hall bathroom lined floor to ceiling with brick-shaped beige stone tiles. The apartment also has a private roof terrace with glittery city views that encompass the Chrysler Building, One World Trade Center, and the slender steeple of the French Gothic Revival-style Grace Church on lower Broadway.

Miz Ringwald and her writer/editor husband Panio Gianopoulos have in years past rented houses in Los Angeles but at least as far as this property gossips knows neither hasn’t owned a home on the West Coast since 1996 when Miz Ringwald sold a 3,412-square-foot Mediterranean along a notably celeb-lined road in the Hollywood Hills for an unrecorded amount to “Wheel of Fortune Host” Drew Carey.

Miz Ringwald, a founding member of the 1980s Brat Pack with seminal roles in the iconic teen-angst films “Sixteen Candles,” “Breakfast Club,” and “Pretty in Pink,” appeared earlier this year in James Franco’s gay porn bio-pic “King Cobra,” recently popped up on the Bravo series “Odd Mom Out” as an hypocritical self-help guru, and currently co-stars with Jason Priestley as a perfectionist parent in the Canadian sitcom “Raising Expectations.”
