Although Kelsey Grammer is best known for his starring roles in sitcoms based in Boston and Seattle, the former star of Cheers and Frasier makes his home right here in NYC – specifically in a West Chelsea apartment now listed for $9.75M.
Over his long career, Grammer has played many parts, had many wives and children and collected many homes including places in Malibu, Maui, Bachelor Gulch and most recently in New York City. Now, however, Grammer is unloading the three-bedroom condo he bought in 2010 for $6.4M. Six years later, Grammer and his family have decided its time to move on. According to the Wall Street Journal, they “have outgrown” the 3,076-square foot place.
The apartment, located on the 19th floor of 100 Eleventh Avenue, is fitting for a star who seems to embrace the limelight and frequently appears in the headlines of celebrity news. Designed by France’s favorite starchitects, Jean Nouvel, 100 Eleventh Avenue is one of West Chelsea’s most iconic and recognizable new buildings. The glassy, blue facade is hard to miss, cutting a sparkling figure easily visible from the West Side Highway and the High Line.
Grammar’s apartment boasts 100 feet of linear glass walls offering views of the Hudson and the Empire State Building. The three-bedroom apartment has a huge open floor plan layout, tricked out with all the bells and whistles of your typical luxury apartment. Yep, we’re talking wet bars and wine fridges, European fixtures and finishes. And if Grammer wanted to hobnob with non-celebs, there is a 70-foot swimming pool for building residents.
If Grammer gets the full asking price, he’ll command a 52 percent premium over what he paid in 2010 – a nice bump for a guy who played a radio psychiatrist.
