Matthew Morrison, known for his role as Will Schuester in Glee
, and his wife Renee are looking to unload their 540 West 28th Street apartment for $2.495 million after purchasing it for slightly less back in 2014. The pair snagged the 1,245-square-foot unit to use as a pied-a-tierre while the actor was on Broadway in Finding Neverland
, a role he departed from in 2016, according to 6sqft
.After the recent birth of their first child, the new family seems to have outgrown the corner two-bedroom, two-bath residence, which is ideally situated just a half-block away from the High Line. Other well-known individuals are also seeking to leave the area, including This American Life
radio show host Ira Glass who listed his Chelsea apartment last fall
.Morrison's cozy apartment is decorated with earthy colors, wooden artwork, and breezy draperies, feeling more like a beach getaway than a 10th floor Manhattan condo. Massive double-glazed windows and high ceilings make small spaces feel huge. The kitchen is compact, but comes fully outfitted with high-end appliances like a SubZero refrigerator and a Bertazzoni gas range. Views of the Hudson River and One World Trade Center can be seen from the comfort of the couch, but especially impress on the building's roof deck.Matthew Mackay and Benjamin P. Dixon of Douglas Elliman
have the Chelsea listing.
