Actor David Duchovny finally found a buyer for his Upper West Side co-op after two years on and off the market, according to The Real Deal. The NYC native, who is best known for his Golden Globe-winning roles in The X-Files and Californication, initially listed the three-bedroom and three-bathroom unit in 2021 for $7.5 million, but had to reduce the price to $5.995 million before receiving an offer. Ultimately, the buyer negotiated a $5.65 million sale price. Duchovny spent a little over $6 million for the 19th-floor apartment back in 2012, so the television star is facing roughly a half-a-million dollar loss on the sale.
Located in a 1930s Art Deco building designed by Emery Roth, the apartment still has plenty of prewar charm, including high ceilings, large casement windows, the original hardwood parquet floors, and generous closet space. A private elevator opens to a spacious entrance gallery, which connects on either side to a living room with Central Park views and a windowed dining room slash lounge space. There’s also a window seat breakfast nook in the galley kitchen, which is painted a handsome shade of blue and features a marble backsplash.

The bright living room has a fireplace with a large jet black surround, bookended by custom floor-to-ceiling wooden built-ins. An oversized window and a small corner terrace supply sweeping Central Park and city skyline panoramas.
A roughly 270-square-foot primary bedroom offers tons of closet space and a black-and-white tiled ensuite bathroom. The other two bedrooms, one of which is currently set up as a small gym, each host their own windowed bathroom.
The unit comes with about $5,400 of monthly maintenance fees, in exchange for amenities that include 24-hour doorman and concierge services, a fitness room, a library, and more. Duchovny previously owned a Malibu estate that he sold to fellow actor Mel Gibson in 2008.
