Mr. Big is headed back to the Upper East Side—kind of, anyway.
While Carrie Bradshaw’s apartment on Sex and the City is the one that resulted in the most interest, to the point where avid fans still stop by the West Village townhouse that was used for exterior shots in order to take pictures on the stoop, Mr. Big was the one with the spacious New York abode, despite that mishap with the red wall.
Noth’s newly purchased Upper East Side co-op doesn’t have any red paint at the moment, but it does have a surplus of patterned wallpaper, which we imagine the actor will be removing at some point in the near future.
The prewar Lenox Hill abode is entirely renovated, but there are still traditional details like beamed ceilings, crown moldings and the herringbone floors. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom home has high ceilings and oversized windows, with a “loft-like” layout, says the listing shared by Corcoran brokers Ileana Lopez-Balboa and Deanna Kory.
Noth paid $1.85 million for the cozy apartment at 139 East 66th Street. It was last listed for $1.88 million, so he scored a minor discount.
The bedroom wing is separated from the “formal rooms,” and in addition, there’s a staff room, with a full bathroom, currently configured as a home office.
The windowed kitchen has black granite counters, a butler’s pantry and stainless steel appliances, while all the marble bathrooms have Waterworks fixtures. There’s a wood-burning fireplace in the living room, plus built-in bookshelves and custom closets throughout the co-op.
Noth also owns an apartment downtown, at 45 East 9th Street—the very same building where the real life Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City author (and former Observer writer) Candace Bushnell also owned a unit—Bushnell sold her rather unique designer apartment there in 2015.
But we must say, we don’t know how Noth’s new apartment compares to the megamansion his former costar is currently building in the West Village. Indeed, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick spent $34.5 million on two neighboring townhouses last year, which, when combined, could create a 13,900-square-foot home, right on West 11th Street.
