The fuchsia-filled East Side apartment that belonged to Hollywood legend Greta Garbo has found a buyer after little more than a month on the market.

The seven-room spread in the Campanile building at 450 East 52nd Street went into contract on Wednesday, reports Mansion Global. It had an asking price of almost $6 million.

Although we don’t know the identity of the buyer, we’re assuming they have some spare change on hand as the tony co-op requires buyers to pay for their homes in cash only.

The reclusive actress lived at the Campanile for 40 years, from 1954 until her death in 1990. The 2,855-square-foot apartment encompass the full fifth floor of the building and includes three bedrooms, three full baths, a home office, a laundry room, an abundance of storage space, a private elevator lobby and East River views.

This will be the first time the unit has sold since Garbo bought it.
