Debra Messing isn’t messing around on or off camera. The actress — who plays an NYPD homicide detective in “The Mysteries of Laura” on NBC — has ended her two-and-a-half-year relationship with actor Will Chase. She also just scooped up a prime piece of Upper East Side real estate: an elegant eighth-floor co-op less than half a block from Central Park and Fifth Avenue.
Property records confirm Messing closed the deal for $5.45 million, slightly less than the home’s $5.499 million asking price.
Described in the listing as a “fabulous apartment [with] beautiful prewar details,” Messing’s unit has a corner master suite and three additional bedrooms — each with an en-suite bathroom. The living room has 10-foot-high ceilings, a balcony and a wood-burning fireplace.
There’s also a library with custom built-ins and a renovated eat-in kitchen with white Shaker cabinets.
Messing, best known for her starring role in “Will & Grace,” has kept busy over the years. Last year, while playing a lead role on the TV series “Smash,” she listed her Bel-Air home for $11.95 million. A month later, she secured a buyer for $11.4 million.
