A home in celeb-fave 1 Fifth Ave. sells for $1M over its ask

A posh pad at the famed 1 Fifth Ave. — a Greenwich Village building with a history of celeb tenants and the subject of a Candace Bushnell novel — has sold for $1 million above its asking price.

The full floor co-op was asking $5.99 million and sold for $7 million, according to property records.

That could still be considered a bargain, since the home first hit the market for $8.5 million in 2019.

The two-bedroom, two-bath spread is on the 25th floor of the Art Deco building, which dates to 1927 — and comes with its own elevator landing and views of Washington Square Park.

Jessica Lange bought two units in the downtown property, which is also where Robert Mapplethorpe shot Patti Smith’s “Horses” album cover — and where Helena Bonham Carter lived with Tim Burton before their 2014 split. Actress Blythe Danner, Gwyneth Paltrow’s mom, lived in the building; Keith Richards and “Scarface” director Brian De Palma also owned units there.

There are also hardwood floors and picture windows.

The listing broker was Douglas Elliman’s William Martin; the buyer was repped by Ann Weintraub of Ann Weintraub, Ltd.
