Academy, Golden Globe and BAFTA Award-winning actress for her role in The Piano, and Academy and Emmy Awards nominee for parts in other movies, Holly Hunter has chopped the price tag of her plush Greenwich Village co-op apartment by almost half a million dollars, which makes the current asking price $8.7 million.
Built at the turn of the 20th century, this stylish pad is situated at 43 Fifth Avenue in a Beaux Arts building with full service, which has preserved its original elaborate details, moldings and beautiful woodwork, although the high-floor apartment has undergone some restoration work.
Bought in 2007 from famous cinema star Julia Roberts for $4.1 million, the 3,000-square-foot pad comprises nine rooms, out of which four plush bedrooms and three bathrooms. Highlights of the interior include double-windowed offices, coved ceilings, stunning woodwork, fine paneling, ornate moldings and stained glass throughout. The entry foyer opens to a snug library with a purple sofa and built-in book shelves and an adjoining living room parlor, with its colorful blend of furnishings and artwork, whose French doors open to a partially paneled formal dining room, with a working wood-burning fireplace, which has direct access to the top-of-the-line kitchen with extensive seating space through a window’s butler’s pantry with an adjacent laundry room.
The noted actress is repoerted to own a 34-acre tract of undeveloped land adjoining some property owned by members of her family in her home city,Conyers, Georgia.
