Barry Levinson, 70, Academy Award winning screenwriter, film director, actor and film and television producer (And Justice for All, Diner The Natural, Young Sherlock Holmes, Good Morning Vietnam, Rain Man, Avalon, Bugsy, Toys, Sleepers, Wag the Dog, Oz), whose primary family residence is in Connecticut, has picked up a 3,090 sq ft crash pad in a luxury apartment building at 104 Wooster Street. The asking price was $300 higher, so it was sort of a bargain for our man.
The cast-iron building dates from 1891 and was designed by notable architects DeLemos and Cordes. The condo-loft features 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 13-foot wood beamed ceilings, oversized windows, cast iron columns, hardwood floors and a private elevator entrance. The 38-ft-long living space has a gas fireplace, an all-white kitchen which comes equipped with sophisticated appliances, a large pantry, an oversized center work island and lavish laundry space. Behind the kitchen is a hall leading to the three bedrooms: two guest bedrooms sharing two bathrooms in the hall and the master suite which features an almost 20-ft-sq bedroom with an adjoining elegant bathroom.
Besides this crash pad and the Connecticut home, the Levinsons own a three-story residence in Annapolis, Maryland and a pied-a-terre in the Westwood area of Los Angeles.
