HAVE YOU HEARD …
Weeds actress Mary-Louise Parker has sold her Village co-op for $7.45 million.
Corcoran agent Laura Rozos brought the five-bedroom, 4.5 bath, pre-war duplex at 32 Washington Square to market in March listed at $6.99 million.
The buyers are Brooklynites Elizabeth Rovere and Charles O’Kelley. He is the CEO of AppNexus, an online advertising company, and she is a clinical psychologist, according to LinkedIn.
Last year, the couple paid $7.3 million for 40 Willow Place in Brooklyn Heights, which at the time had an assessed value of $6.35 million, reported to be the highest in the borough.
Parker has reportedly been trying to sell the home she bought with ex Billy Crudup for the past three years without success.
Rozos told REW her secret was hiring a stager to “spruce up” and de-clutter” the apartment. “The minute it hit the market, I had so much interest it sold in a week,” she said.
The broker declined to comment on the seller’s plans or the buyer’s intentions for their new home.
She did tell us she is listing some amazing Victorian mansions in Brooklyn right now and a Harlem townhouse. Check them out at http://www.corcoran.com/nyc/Agents/Display/6130

The Hakimian Organization donated the rooftop of 75 Wall Atop Andaz for The New York Foundling’s fundraiser event to benefit their Crisis Nursery. The event raised nearly $30,000.

A crowd of approximately 200 turned out to support the fundraiser, which featured a silent auction and live music by Shakey Tables.
