Renowned British writer Jim Grant, better known by his pen name Lee Child and famous for his ‘Jack Reacher’ novels, has decided to part ways with his expansive New York City condominium.
The luxurious four-bedroom, three-bathroom apartment, located just steps away from Central Park with more than 21m of park frontage, has been listed for sale at an asking price of $11 million.
Grant originally acquired this opulent residence in 2014 for $9.15 million, according to realtor.com.
Situated on the 11th floor of a prestigious building dating back to 1906, the property offers a glimpse into the high life of New York City living.
However, with luxury comes a price, as the monthly HOA fee for this condominium amounts to a substantial $8533.
The building provides an array of amenities, including a full-time doorman, an elegant lobby, a garage, bike storage, a communal laundry room, and a package room, with an upcoming gym set to open soon.
Inside the apartment, a spacious grand room with remarkable park views welcomes residents and visitors.
This area features large picture windows, elegant molding, and exquisite hardwood floors.
The adjacent gourmet kitchen boasts a Carrara marble-topped island bench, a commercial-grade Viking stove, a Sub-Zero double refrigerator, and a pantry.
A formal dining room with built-in shelving is conveniently located nearby.
The main suite, fit for royalty, occupies its own wing and offers a sitting room, multiple walk-in closets, and an en suite bathroom complete with a tub, glass shower, and double sinks.
Three additional bedrooms are discreetly situated down a private hallway.
Notably, the condo includes a library that can easily double as an extra guest room.
Grant, at the age of 69, is celebrated for his extensive literary contributions, especially the thrilling ‘Jack Reacher’ series, which has captivated readers since the late ’90s.
