In a desirable co-op that overlooks Prospect Park, this spacious and elegant unit is back on the market after another renovation. Sharp-eyed real estate enthusiasts might recognize it as the 9 Prospect Park West pad that actress Chloe Sevigny bought in 2013 and then put back on market in 2016 after her own renovation.
Construction of this luxury building, designed by Manhattan-based firm Boak & Paris, was completed just before the 1929 stock market crash that ushered in the Great Depression. It replaced The Hampton, an apartment building that stood for just over 25 years before being demolished to make way for this new Venetian-style building.
The unit has an elevator that opens directly into the apartment, three bedrooms, and three full baths. It got a modern overhaul after Sevigny purchased it, and while most of those design changes remain, the most recent owners have given it a few style tweaks, reduced the number of bedrooms and fully renovated the three baths.
The living room has beamed ceilings, a decorative fireplace and views of Prospect Park. There’s also a generously sized dining room. A home office acts as a passthrough to the eat-in kitchen, where the polished concrete has been replaced with a new wood floor. Original floor plans show the home office was once a pantry separating the family spaces from the domain of the servants. The two servants’ bedrooms have now been combined into one, turning the classic seven into a classic six.
The renovated bathrooms have dark vanities, white subway tile and brass fixtures. The two pictured have wallpaper, one with a bold leopard print. The more recent renovations don’t appear to have included adding laundry facilities.
Among the amenities in the building are a live-in super, 24-hour doorman, a bike room and storage units. Maintenance for this unit is $3,144 a month.
Sevigny sold the apartment in 2017 for $2.7 million. It’s now listed for $3.25 million with Jackie Torren of Corcoran. Worth the ask?
