Broadway and TV star Anthony Rapp has just sold his Noho home — the one he was able to buy after starring as Mark Cohen in the acclaimed Broadway musical, ‘Rent’ — for more than his asking price.
The Bond Street home sold for $2 million – it was only on the market for 12 days and sold above its original price of $1.95 million.
It was the first time it had been on the market in over two decades.
The second-floor unit at 1 Bond St. — a historic cast-iron building featuring a Palladian skylight with a clock — once served as a factory floor.
The building was originally constructed from 1879 to 1880 as the headquarters of the American Waltham Watch Company and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982, five years before it was converted into condos.
At 1,250 square feet, the residence features original details such as pine hardwood floors, Corinthian columns, restored tin ceilings with cornices, and even an original clawfoot tub.
The unit has a large open living/dining area and an open chef’s kitchen, as well as a large “bedroom area”, according to the listing.
The residence also includes many built-ins, a home office with a reading nook, and a “one-of-a-kind reclaimed wood wall” commissioned by artist Michelle Peterson-Albandoz.
The listing broker was Sotheby’s Kristi Ambrosetti.
Last month, we reported Rapp’s $3.5 million purchase in East Village with partner Ken Ithiphol. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom home is located at 32 E. 1st St. It was asking for $3.62 million in 2019.
The obie-winning actor now openly plays Lt. Cmdr. Paul Stamets on “Star Trek: Discovery”. Rapp was also the first actor to accuse Kevin Spacey of sexual assault in 2017.
