“Saturday Night Live” funny man turned late night TV host Seth Meyers and his wife Alexi have upgraded to a slavish co-op just steps from Washington Square Park. The couple paid $7.5 million for the 3200-square-foot residence on the upper floors of 32 Washington Square West, according to public records.
The pre-war apartment has five bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms, as well as 26 windows. It occupies two full floors in the 15-story Deutsch and Schneider-designed building, where amenities include a doorman, elevator operator, residents fitness room and live-in super.
“The current owner has beautifully finished all of the walls in luxurious Venetian plaster, adding a level of opulence to an already special home,” according to the listing. It also boasts “a Hollywood-sized wardrobe” — meaning there’s plenty of room for all those navy suits.
This isn’t the first time a celebrity has purchased this particular unit, however. “Weeds” actress Mary-Louise Parker sold the apartment in 2013 to Charles O’Kelley and Elizabeth Rovere for $7.75 million. But just one year later, the apartment was back on the market. It sold for a loss to Daniel and Hillary Wallace, who paid just $6.9 million. Nice job Wallaces!
Hopefully the “Late Night with Seth Meyers” host will have better luck with the apartment.
