Makeup maven Laura Mercier’s Walker Tower pad is already in contract

The apartment hit the market for $11.5 million in July

Less than one month after cosmetics giant Laura Mercier listed her two-bedroom Walker Tower home, the apartment has entered contract, the Post reports.

The swift sale clashes with a chorus of Curbed commenters all doubtful about the pad’s ability to sell, at least at its asking price. The sale has yet to close, indicating how much it sold for, but the apartment’s brief stint on the market, and the fact that it’s selling in an all-cash deal, may suggest that Mercier did not have to compromise too much.

Mercier is leaving behind her two-bedroom, two-bathroom high-floor apartment to return to her native France. She was one of the first to sign into the condo conversion, and paid $5.91 million in late 2013 for the 2,168-square-foot apartment.

The condo comes with floor-to-ceiling windows, French herringbone floors, and high ceilings. The master bedroom includes two walk-in closets, and a master bath with a cast-iron tub. The kitchen comes stocked with swanky appliances by Miele and Viking, including a wine cooler and a built-in coffee machine.

Mercier rose to prominence in the 1990s doing makeup for celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow and Sarah Jessica Parker, and established her namesake brand in 1996. She’s since sold the company, but still plays a big role in it. With her move back to France, Mercier is looking to expand her bran in Europe.
