LEDGER’S NEW YORK APARTMENT UP FOR RENT The New York residence where late Hollywood actor HEATH LEDGER was found dead has been put back on the market for rent.
Ledger was found in the downtown Manhattan apartment in January (08), after an accidental overdose of prescription drugs.
The SoHo loft flat has been listed for $26,000 (#14,054) a month – $4,000
(#2,162) more than the actor paid before his tragic death.
Ledger moved into the loft last September (07) after finishing work on his role as The Joker in his last completed film, Batman sequel The Dark Knight.
According to the New York Post, the apartment was quietly being shopped around in February (08).
A New York real-estate broker told the newspaper at the time: “You don’t wait around in a hot rental market like this. As ghoulish as it sounds, people will rent that place in a heartbeat.”
The apartment includes three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, an office, laundry room, gourmet kitchen, sprawling balcony and wood-burning fireplace.
The apartment’s agent at New York’s Corcoran Group did not return calls on the listing.
As FanBolt went to press, the building’s owner, Donald Burns, could not be reached.
