After almost a decade of ownership, New York City-based Indian American filmmaker Mira Nair listed a two-bedroom and two-bathroom condo in Manhattan’s art gallery packed West Chelsea neighborhood with an asking price of $1.85 million, according to Variety.
The “Queen of Katwe” filmmaker, adds the exclusive report, bought the condo in February 2008 for $1.375 million and over the years has made it available as a rental at around $6,500 per month.
The 1,257-square-feet loft-style apartment has hardwood floors, white walls and an open-plan galley-style kitchen.
According to the listing agent Pamela D’Arc at Stribling and Associates, this “Gloriously sunny south and open west facing corner loft with 12 feet ceilings and tall windows in sought after West Chelsea, is located in a boutique full service condominium, and has a spacious south and west facing corner living room and an elegant open Schiffini kitchen with counter seating.”
Residents of the nine-story building, who include celebrated Chinese contemporary artist and activist Ai Weiwei, adds Variety, are provided with premium level services that include 24-hour doorman attended lobby, a double-height lounge area that opens though a wall of accordion fold glass doors to a serene courtyard garden with reflecting pool, a screening room and a communal landscaped roof deck with an over the rooftop view over the Hudson River.
Nair’s acclaimed film, “Monsoon Wedding” (2001), was recently brought to the California-based Berkeley Repertory Theatre as a musical, where it completed an extended, sold-out run this past summer.
