Italian actress Isabella Rosselini listed her Upper West Side condo for $2.895 million just a few months ago, and it's already in contractÂ for over her asking price, at 3.05 million (the buyer made an initial offer just 20 days after the unit was listed). The unit was a unique property, with three bedrooms on two floors and one terrace facing south and another wraparound terrace facing north. The floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive views made this a handsome property, so it isn't too surprising that it would sell quickly. Also, with real estate prices in ManhattanÂ refusing to go down, particularly in the luxury market, the high selling price is in step with trends in the city.
Rosselini is giving up city life for Long Island, having left the Upper East Side for the Upper West just a few short years ago. Long Island is still within commuting distance, so I'm sure the city will be seeing plenty of the actress in days to come.
