A Top Photographer’s Picture-Perfect Lenox Hill Co-Op Asks $2.5M

Landscape artist and former model Kate Cordsen is selling her classic six on the Upper East Side, and it’s as picture-perfect as you might expect. Cordsen—who started her career as a model and gained her own affinity for art and photography—has lived in the Lenox Hill co-op for 13 years.

The model-turned-artist and her late husband fully renovated the now photoshoot-ready home, which is complete with two bedrooms, each with an en-suite bath. A potential third bedroom, that currently poses as a home office, includes a windowed powder room.

Though the artist is looking to hand off her residence, she won’t be leaving the city. Cordsen has a studio on West 26th Street and is moving to Gramercy Park with her new partner. “It is bittersweet selling my apartment,” Cordsen says. “It’s such a lovely, old-world space and has been the setting for many art-world gatherings, dinners, and salons.”

An ideal place to display treasure at, in the dining room, a cyanotype photograph Cordsen did for a Connecticut museum show currently occupies an entire wall. Lighting is everything, as any good photographer knows, and this residence is as bright as it is airy. Located on the third floor of a pre-war building, oversized arched windows look out to the treetops. Coffered ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace add a feeling of coziness.

For those who can picture a future at 333 East 68th Street, James Hall and Anna Hall of Compass hold the listing priced $2.5 million.
