The former East Village apartment of actress Chloe Sevigny was purchased by the executive director of the Estee Lauder Companies. Shana Randhava bought the apartment for $2.2 million as reported by The Real Deal.
According to New York Post, the 1,250-square-foot co-op is situated on the garden floor of a Greek Revival townhouse on East10th Street between Second and Third Avenues.
It has been reported that when Sevigny still owns the apartment it was featured in Shelter Magazine and it was decorated like a “British ‘shabby chic’ cottage.”
In 2003, Sevigny sold the apartment for $1.76 million to high-profile tech entrepreneurs couple, Halle Tecco and Jeff Hammerbacher. It was Halleand Jeff who renovated the apartment by adding some modern aesthetic but still retaining the character of the Greek Revival townhouse.
According to Heather L. McDonough and Henry Hershkowitz of Core NYC, the home is exquisite with a beautiful well-landscaped front garden. A Dutch door leads to chic designer-inspired hallway. There are magnificent pre-war details in the entire home.
It has a spacious living room with fire place and surrounded with antique mirrors making the area look more glamorous. As for the dining area it welcomes the beauty of sunlight through its casement windows along with Terra Cotta flooring.
The apartment has an oversized master bedroom with its own wood-burning fireplace. An original marble mantle leads to the walk-in closet. The master bathroom is designed with Ann Sacks tiles.
The townhouse is part of “six 19th Century townhouses with a collection of 29 residences” that is located within the St. Mark’s Historic district.
The cooperative has a common garden, live-in superintendent and even basement storage locker that is said to be available for rent as well as for bicycle storage. There is also a strict “no smoking policy” in the pet-friendly area.
