Tony Award-winning actress Janet McTeer buys UWS apartment for $1.4M


Tony-Award winning British actress Janet McTeer and her husband Joe Coleman have just purchased an Upper West Side condo for $1.4 million at 175 West 95th Street from Starrett Companies LLC, according to public records.

The 962-square-foot apartment has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, with “dramatic city views” and a private balcony. The building features a separate play area, fitness center and landscaped terrace.

McTeer won a Tony Award an Olivier Award in 1997 for her portrayal of Nora in “A Doll’s House” (which she performed at the West End in London and on Broadway). In his review, Ben Brantley of The New York Times wrote:

What Ms. McTeer achieves, with the magnificent support of the director Anthony Page and a flawless supporting cast, is the sense that the landmark, century-old role of Ibsen’s Nora Helmer, the childlike housewife who comes so painfully of age, was only just written, and written specifically for her. You may think you know ”A Doll’s House” inside out. This production is guaranteed to prove you wrong.

She has also been nominated for two Academy Awards — one for Best Actress in the 1999 film “Tumbleweeds” and one for Best Supporting Actress in the 2011 film “Albert Nobbs,” which starred Glenn Close and Mia Wasikowska. McTeer was made an OBE (Order of the British Empire) by Queen Elizabeth in 2008. McTeer is set to star in a new production of “Les Liaisons Dangereuses” at the Donmar Warehouse playing the Marquise de Merteuil along with Dominic West.

McTeer is also famous for her formidable height of over six feet, telling the lesbian-lifestyle magazine “Curve” in 2011 that “I think partly I’m lucky that my height suits my personality. I’m quite forceful, forthright and I like those kind of roles.”

We just hope the ceilings are high in her new place!
