Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser, the married actors who brought us two of television’s most compelling characters — Rory Gilmore and Pete Campbell, respectively — have sold their Brooklyn Heights penthouse for $1.32 million.
The one-bedroom, two-bath abode features stunning espresso hardwood floors, large windows and a built-in bookshelf — a delightful nod to Bledel’s famously well-read Chilton Prep alumnae character, who will be returning to Stars Hollow in Netflix’s “Gilmore Girls” revival later this year.
Inside the apartment, a stairway leads to the loft bedroom as well as to the kitchen, surrounded by white walls that form interesting geometric shapes underneath a cast-iron chandelier and 18-foot ceilings.
A stylish dining area with several windows and ornate wallpaper offers direct access to the industrial-style chef’s kitchen. Featuring all-white cabinets, black granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, the room’s monochrome color scheme provides a modern look for the well planned co-op.
The cozy master bedroom boasts ample windows offering water views, as well as an internal window with a view of the downstairs. The master suite includes a marble bathroom with a rain shower, chrome finishes and heated floors.
The penthouse provides an additional staircase to a private 500-square-foot outdoor space, and all residents of this Queen Anne-style building have access to a full rooftop lounge with sweeping views of Manhattan and downtown Brooklyn.
The home was sold by James C. Cox Jr., Frank Giordano and Chad Maltby of Compass brokers.
