Michael C. Hall Buys Manhattan Home for $4.3M

The Dexter star takes a stab at moving uptown.

Michael C. Hall’s new home on Central Park West is certainly a cut above the rest. The actor, known best for his role as serial killer Dexter Morgan on the Showtime hit Dexter, just snagged a two-bed, three-bath home on Manhattan‘s Upper West Side for $4.3 million. 

Measuring 2200 square feet, the “Classic Six” (the common term for a six-room floor plan in a pre-war New York apartment building) is in the iconic El Dorado building. Designed by legendary architect Emery Roth and completed in 1931, the Art Deco-style building is truly a design landmark.  An expansive 29-foot grand gallery welcomes guests from a semi-private landing. A living room overlooking the famed Central Park is lit by Eastern and Northern light by day, and a cozy wood-burning fireplace by night. A dining room that seats 10 guests flows into an eat-in kitchen that would have any cook eager to whip up a meal. Outfitted with Miele appliances, a restaurant sized garland stove is complemented by salamander and brushed stainless steel counter tops. Recently gut renovated, the apartment embodies the magic of its Art Deco history, while embracing modern appliances and technology. Brand new rift and quartered solid white oak floors stream throughout the home, while custom doors and cabinets are intricately designed. And with a full-time doorman, concierge, gym, basketball court, play room, and additional luxurious amenities, Hall may want to avoid the brutal New York winters by staying inside all day.

The Upper West Side apartment isn’t Michael’s only property in New York. In 2016, he dropped $4.195 million on a two-bed, two-bath unit in the Greenwich Village neighborhood. Also last year, he sold his West Coast property in the hip Los Angeles neighborhood of Los Feliz for $4.8 million, the entire asking price. He previously owned a contemporary-style home in the celebrity-filled Outpost Estates of Los Angeles, as well as a four-bed, four-and-a-half-bath home in the Hollywood Hillswhich he owned for only a month. Hall’s Dexter co-star, Yvonne Strahovski, also previously owned a home in the Hills- however hers was in Beverly Hills
