RFR Holding co-founder Michael Fuchs purchased the West Village apartment belonging to Comedian Seth Meyers and his wife, Alexi Ashe, $4.35 million, according to city property records. The two-bedroom condo was listed in the fall for $4.5 million and was already in contract after just 40 days on the market.
As the celebrity couple sold one home, they were moving into a recently renovated duplex in Greenwich Village, which they bought back in 2016 for $7.5 million.
Real estate bigwig Michael Fuchs purchased the West Village condo with his wife Alvina. Along with his longtime friend Aby Rosen, Fuchs co-founded RFR Holdings, which has in its portfolio several iconic New York buildings including the Seagram Building and Lever House.
Fuchs’ new pad is located in 302 W 12th Street, a building which has housed several celebrities such as Glenn Close. The listing, from broker Max J. Kozower, of
Maxwell Jacobs’ Max Kozower was the properties broker. In the listing, the building is referred to as “the ultimate address in the West Village.”
According to The Post, “The timing of the sale couldn’t be better, since the ‘Late Night’ and Golden Globes host, Ashe and their 22-month-old, Ashe Olsen Meyers, recently officially settled into new Greenwich Village digs. The $7.5 million duplex at 32 Washington Square West was formerly owned by Mary-Louise Parker of ‘Weeds’ fame. Although that deal closed in 2016, the family moved in around a month ago, a friend tells The Post, following an extensive renovation. ‘They needed more space for their growing family,’ the friend adds. The couple is expecting their second child, another boy. Also moved into the new home: their Italian greyhound, Frisbee.”
City property records show that in 2013, Meyers and Ashe purchased the unit on the 12th floor of 302 W 12th Street for $3.52 million. The Washington Square Park duplex that the family just moved into is definitely a move up. It is slightly less than 1,000 square feet with high ceilings and hardwood floors. It features a big master suite, a foyer, a chef’s kitchen and a sunken living room with a wood-burning fireplace.
