After only one day on the market, the former apartment of Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman has rented for $10,500 a month—$505 more than the late actor was paying. The 1,100-square-foot pad is located at 35 Bethune St. in New York City.
A recently renovated printing plant, Hoffman’s unit was on the fourth floor of a building now called Pickwick House, which was built in 1880 and gut-renovated in 1984. The apartment is part of the Historic Preservation District, and underwent a major clean-up after the actor was found dead inside it on February 2.
The now-rented occupancy has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and is a loft style apartment with light shining in from nine oversized windows. It also features 10-foot-high, wood-beamed ceilings, a wood-burning brick fireplace, strip oak floors and custom closets in both bedrooms.
Hoffman was an American actor known for the ambition and depth that he brought to his characters. Some of his noteworthy films include “Almost Famous,” “Boogie Nights,” “Magnolia,” and “Capote,” for which he won the Oscar for Best Actor. He died from a drug overdose at the age of 46.
