Kelsey Grammer finally in contract to sell Chelsea apartment

Actor Kelsey Grammer — best known for playing the lovable curmudgeon Frasier Crane — has just offloaded his condominium at 100 Eleventh Avenue for a tad under $8 million, the Wall Street Journal reports. His father’s ugly chair is not included in the sale.

Grammer listed the apartment almost a year ago with Emily Beare and Daniel Amell of Core for $9.75 million, and the price dropped until its last asking price of $8.95 million. According to reps for Grammer, he decided to sell the unit because he “had outgrown it.”

Pritzker Prize-winner Jean Nouvel designed the building at 100 Eleventh Avenue, which offers a 70-foot indoor/outdoor lap pool, a fitness center, garden and sauna and steam rooms. Grammer’s 3,076-square-foot unit has three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, 11-foot ceilings, a Crestron home automation system and — best of all — unbelievable views of the Hudson River. Grammer paid $6.4 million for the unit in 2010 under the LLC Hudson Nh.
