While some of us will perhaps never actually understand what happened in the Lost finale (or, to be honest, a sizable portion of the entire series), the Dharma Initiative, or what those numbers mean, showrunner Carlton Cuse has a more straightforward future ahead.

Cuse, one of the masterminds behind Lost, as well as Bates Motel and the upcoming Jack Ryan, has purchased a $4.1 million two-bedroom, 2.5-bath Flatiron condo. Cuse and his wife, Christiane, paid a tad under the most recent $4.4 million asking price attached to the 1,690-square-foot abode, though it was first listed for $4.88 million in December.

The couple purchased the condo from 10 Madison Sq. W. Unit 6D, LLC (a name that really rolls right off the tongue), and the unit was recently renovated, per the listing shared by Corcoran brokers Cathy Franklin, Alexis Bodenheimer and Marion Smith.

There’s no need to search the island for food or those plane leftovers, as this apartment has an eat-in gourmet kitchen with custom SieMatic cabinetry, a breakfast bar is made of Bianco Carraro marble, and added features like wide-plank oak hardwood floors and ceilings over ten feet throughout.

The master suite has two “enormous” walk-in closets, and the en-suite master bath is Carrara marble, with two sinks, a walk-in shower, and a deep soaking tub.

The Cuses will also have access to the building’s private fitness center, 60-foot swimming pool, hot tub, yoga and Pilates studios, as well as a spa treatment room—yup, sounds like it beats that scary island with the Dharma bunkers.

And while there might not be a Jack, Kate, or Sawyer to hang with at 10 Madison Square West, neighbors in the Witkoff Group’s building include Babbo chef Joe Bastianich, as well as Elliman broker Fredrik Eklund.
