Charles Gandee Sells Village 1BR Co-op Apt. for $2M

An unusually shaped 1,400 sq. ft. pre-war duplex co-op apartment at 29 East 9th Street just sold for $2,000,000, a little more than a 10% reduction off of the original $2,251,000 listing price when the 1 bedroom first hit the market last May.

The seller was the architecture and design critic Charles Gandee. He is a former Vogue editor who contributed pieces to The New York Times Magazine, Architectural Record, and Travel & Leisure.

According to Salon, Gandee secured a Conde Naste-backed mortgage “when he was just an editor at large” at the publisher’s now defunct House & Garden magazine. An inspection of New York City public records confirms this, including multiple filings listing Conde Naste as a secured creditor during portions of his nearly 18-year residence there.

The buyers are author Philip Galanes and his partner, the swanky architect Michael Haverland.

The co-op is drenched in sunlight streaming in from the south through floor-to-ceiling windows in the 18-foot high living room. Monthly maintenance on the 5-room, 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment is $2,581. The pre-war elevator building has a doorman, a common outdoor space, and — alas — a communal laundry room, not a private washer and dryer in the apartment.

The apartment has several tiny balconies that are just too cute; perfect for growing your own tomatoes or sunflowers.

Prudential Elliman brokers Dee Simonson and Mary Anne Cotter had the listing on the apartment, selling it in 7 weeks.
