Jason Biggs Upgrades With Manhattan Pad (EXCLUSIVE)

New York City, N.Y.
$6.975 million
2,932 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms

A well-placed little birdie sent word via covert communiqué that “Orange Is the New Black” actor Jason Biggs and writer-actress Jenny Mollen, creator and co-star with Biggs of the autobiographical digital series “I Like You Just the Way I Am,” have substantially upgraded their residential circumstances in lower Manhattan with the just shy of $7 million purchase of a family-size apartment in a discreetly plush, newly converted West Village building.

The Biggs-Mollens’ new digs, with double-glazed UV-protected windows and solid oak floors in a classically stylish herringbone pattern, measures in at almost 3,000 square feet with four en suite bedrooms plus a small study and 4.5 bathrooms. The spacious, unconventionally shaped combination living-dining area stretches to 30 feet long, and the open-concept kitchen is finely finished with both exposed and painted mahogany cabinetry.

Residents of the building are pampered with an enviable list of luxuries, such as a fully staffed lobby with a fireplace, a courtyard garden, a paneled library curated by Assouline Publishing, a spa with men’s and women’s steam rooms and a fitness facility with a wood-paneled gym, a half-court basketball court and a climbing wall.

Biggs and Mollen previously owned a secluded 2.5-acre estate with a hacienda-style residence and guesthouse in the Benedict Canyon area of Beverly Hills that they snagged in late 2013 for $3.9 million and sold less than two years later for $4.5 million. They’ve maintained a home in lower Manhattan since the fall of 2013, when they shelled out $2.55 million for a 2,200-square-foot loft-style co-op they set out for sale earlier this year at $2.95 million. The price dropped to $2.65 million, and the two-bedroom spread is now in contract to be sold at an unknown price.
