Nearly a year after first hitting the market for $9.75 million, Kelsey Grammer’s condo at Jean Nouvel‘s glassy 100 Eleventh Avenue in west Chelsea has gone into contract, reports the Wall Street Journal. But despite the fact that that the listing showcased his piano from the set of “Frasier” and the impressive 100 feet of massive windows providing Hudson River and skyline views, the selling price came in at just under $8 million (the price was reduced to $8.95 million in March).
The three-bedroom residence has 11-foot ceilings, terrazzo floors, motorized shades, and a Crestron home automation system. The living room is ready for entertaining with a wet bar/wine fridge, mini fridge, and sink surrounded by Caesarstone quartz counters.
The dining room has a gas-burning fireplace and cozy seating area; for more eat-in space, the kitchen comes with a five-seat island.
The three bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms.
Building amenities include 24/7 concierge services, a garden, screening room, 70-foot indoor/outdoor lap pool, sauna and steam rooms, and a fitness center.
As 6sqft previously explained, Grammer bought the condo for $6.4 million in 2010, moving from fellow starchitect Robert A.M. Stern’s 15 Central Park West while in the middle of a very public divorce from third wife Camille. He allegedly tried to keep the purchasing secret since he was buying it for himself and then-mistress Kayte Walsh. The couple eventually wed, had three children, and decided to sell the apartment because they’ve “outgrown it.” The listing agents told the Journal that the buyers are ” local family who viewed the property early on, a total of seven times.”
