In June, Australian actress Melissa George bought her ex-husband, Claudio Dabed, out of the Flatiron apartment the two had purchased together back in 2010.
After seeing the photos of the adorable two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo, we completely understand why she shelled out $1.3 million to take ownership of the place—the self-described “1930’s French Art Deco” pad is decorated as such, with upholstered dining chairs, glass tables, and sparkling chandeliers.
Luckily for anyone experiencing a serious sense of apartment envy right now, the condo at 141 Fifth Avenue is now listed, fully furnished, on the rental market for $14,000 a month.
George, who is known for her roles in David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive as well from television shows like Grey’s Anatomy, The Good Wife, and In Treatment, and Dabed paid $1.8 million for the doorman condo in 2010. They also rented out the condo in 2015 for the exact same amount; a year later the 1,205-square-foot home is once again up for grabs.
The Flatiron apartment has 11-foot ceilings, and there’s a 500-square-foot terrace that is bedecked with outdoor furniture and a stone dining table. Not that the indoor eating spaces have been ignored—the kitchen has custom English-style hand-painted cabinets, custom glass-tile backsplash, and marble counters, says the listing held by broker Justin S.

The master suite is complete with a custom Italian Poliform walk-in closet and double doors that open out onto the terrace, while the master bath, with custom mosaic floors (radiant floor heating, of course), is set up with a freestanding tub and a separate shower, which has a rainforest shower head.
The prewar space is now probably a tad small for George now, since she and fiancé Jean David Blanc have two children, though it appears that she’s hanging onto the condo, at least at the moment, since it hasn’t yet gone onto the sales market. After looking at the photos, though, we definitely get why she wouldn’t want to permanently offload the place—for now, though, prospective tenants with $14,000 a month to spare will get to live it up amongst the velvet-upholstered furnishings.
