The Real DealMarch 13, 2013
Tony Award winning actress Sutton Foster, the star of new ABC show “Bunheads,” has sold the Midtown apartment she once shared with ex-husband and “Smash” actor Christian Borle, public records show.

Foster, whose drama series was recently renewed for a second season, inked a deal to sell the apartment at 345 West 55th Street last month for $770,000, according to records filed with the city. She and Borle, both of whom have acted on Broadway as well as on television, bought the apartment for $749,000 in 2006, records show. The property was transferred into Foster’s name in 2009 following the couple’s separation.

The buyer of the property is listed as Antonio Freitas.

The two-bedroom home, between Eighth and Ninth avenues, was first listed for sale by the actress in November, according to Streeteasy.com, and went into contract just one month later. It was listed by Vickey Barron of Core. The broker was not immediately available for comment.

The third-floor, pre-war co-op unit features a large master bedroom, a granite breakfast bar and south-facing windows, according to the listing.

While it was not immediately clear why Foster sold the apartment, it has been reported that “Bunheads” is predominantly filmed in Southern California.
