The college-grad has finally flown her West Village coop. Condo, rather. Kay LeRoy, who divorced famed New York businessman and restauranteur Warner LeRoy (he renovated and re-opened Tavern on the Green), has sold her condo at The Greenwich for $3.182 million. She bought the West Village loft after she divorced LeRoy in 1999, and began taking classes at nearby N.Y.U., where she earned her bachelor’s (with honors!) in 2007.
Ms. LeRoy had helped her daughter, Jennifer, move into the building in 2001, and later decided it would be the perfect place to relocate while she was hitting the books. City records show, however, that Ms. LeRoy purchased four separate units on the eighth floor of the building over the past decade.
In 2001, she purchased 8B, followed by 8A in 2002, 8C in 2003, and, finally, 8D in 2009. Perhaps Ms. LeRoy initially found her quarters in the West Village tighter than she had anticipated. She had, after all, lived in the Dakota with her husband prior to their divorce. It was unit 8D that she sold this week, though on the deed she still listed 8B as her address, so Ms. LeRoy
Although she owned the apartment for less than two years, apartment 8D was not a bad investment for Ms. LeRoy. She bought the condo for $2.2 million, and made a pretty penny selling the property for $3.182 million. It was put on the market in late April and originally listed for $2.9 million.
It seems the former and current proprietors share a love of the neighborhood. The buyers, Avi Drori and Rachel Bobrow, live just a block away at 130 West 13th Street.
Mr. Drori and Ms Bobrow won’t have to do much work on the apartment, either. Brokers Ric Swezey and Rob Jackson of Town Residential claim that the buyers can finally “Live the Loft Life in the lap of luxury and style” in unit 8B. Luxurious details include brown suede walls in the master bedroom, six closets and, of course, location, location, location.
Correction: A previous version of this article stated that apartment 8B, not 8D, was the one that had been sold. Mr. Swezey’s name was also mispelled. The Observer regrets the errors.
