Margery Seftel is selling her East Village apartment — and giving potential buyers the chance to nab some of her famous son’s artwork.
Abstract artist Paul Seftel is a favorite of Grammy-winning violinist Joshua Bell and pals with the likes of Gavin Rossdale, Jude Law and Billy Zane.
The art adorning the walls of mom’s co-op is for sale in addition to the $2.7 million two bedroom, 2-bath apartment that has a separate dining room and skyline views.
The listing agent is Kipton Cronkite, the Douglas Elliman broker who also happens to be an art curator.
Cronkite — a cousin of the famous newsreader Walter — curated the artwork for Bell’s home.
He tells us Georgetown Plaza has become something of a haven for the art set. Residents and neighbors include actor Noah Emmerich (whose dad was art dealer Andre Emmerich), Amy Arbus (daughter of Diane Arbus), DJ Sasha, and singer-songwriter Teddy Thompson. Mrs. Seftel grew up in Manhattan but lived in London for 52 years raising her family. She moved back to New York last year after her husband died.

Interior designer Ernest de la Torre has just listed his home for $3.6 million in the historic, artistic community of Snedens Landing in Rockland County.
De la Torre has transformed The Clock House overlooking the Hudson River with details such as walls stamped in gilded leather from Paris, an 18th century fireplace mantel from London and wood beams from a 19th century barn in Pennsylvania.
The listing agent is Richard Ellis of Ellis Sotheby’s International Realty in Nyack, New York.
The bedroom, 4.5 bath country cottage has a double-height living room, eat-in kitchen with French doors leading to the back patio.
The house sits within a small dell, backed by a wooded fragment of Tallman State Park and a seasonal tributary of the Hudson River.
