Amanda Seyfried, who starred in the Emmy-nominated Hulu series, “The Dropout” — where she portrayed biotech fraudster Elizabeth Holmes, founder of the billion-dollar blood-testing company, Theranos — has sold her Greenwich Village digs for $3.4 million, well above its $3.25 million asking price.
The actress, also beloved for her role in “Mama Mia! Here We Go Again,” bought the two-bedroom, two-bath pad at Devonshire House for $1.9 million in 2010 — slightly over its $1.89 million ask — a year after the famed Emery Roth-designed building at 28 E. 10th St. converted to condos. Past and present residents there have included Alec Baldwin and Josh Charles of “The Good Wife.”
Seyfried has since married Thomas Sadoski, of “The Newsroom,” and the couple — proud parents of two children — now own a family-sized 1,700-square-foot penthouse on the Upper West Side, an LA home she bought from Adam Brody and a Catskills farmhouse that has played its own starring role in shelter magazines.
Seyfried is currently working on the Apple TV+ drama anthology, “The Crowded Room,” where she has been cast alongside fellow Upper West Sider Tom Holland of the “Spider-Man” films.
Seyfried’s now-sold fourth-floor pad is 1,585 square feet. It opens to an entry foyer that leads to a large living room and dining room. It also includes a decorative fireplace, beamed ceilings, custom storage, bookcases and a large white chef’s kitchen designed by Annabelle Selldorf.
The main bedroom has a walk-in closet, courtyard views and a windowed ensuite bathroom with marble and radiant floor heating.
Seyfried once said her role in “Letters to Juliet” — a rom-com filmed in Italy with Christopher Egan, Vanessa Redgrave and Gael Garcia Bernal — paid for the apartment. As she said to Vanity Fair, it’s tough to say no to rom-coms because, “Sometimes, when you want to buy an apartment in Manhattan, you gotta do one or two.”
The 12-story building dates to 1928. Amenities include a landscaped courtyard, a rooftop terrace, a gym and a children’s playroom.
The listing brokers were Corcoran’s Scott B. Stewart and Alicia Cacchione.
