No “X-Files” investigation required. The actor David Duchovny has listed his upscale unit on Manhattan’s celebrated Central Park West. It’s available for $7.5 million.
The star of the long-running sci-fi hit purchased the appealing apartment for $6.03 million in 2012. It boasts panoramic park views, a private terrace, and walls of windows.
Located on the 19th floor, the “impeccably maintained home” is accessed by a private elevator landing and opens to a wide gallery entry with a large round mirror, bench, and storage. The dark wood herringbone flooring flows throughout, and leads to a living room that overlooks Central Park. Highlights of the living space include a wood-burning fireplace and built-in bookshelves.
A terrace off the living area provides some coveted outdoor space overlooking the park.
In addition, the eat-in kitchen includes open shelves, stainless-steel appliances, and cabinet storage. A built-in banquette provides a casual dining nook.
The three-bedroom residence is a corner unit and filled with natural light, which flows into a large den as well as the dining area. The primary suite overlooks Central Park’s Reservoir, and opens to a white, subway-tiled bath and wallpaper in a wave print.

One of the three bedrooms currently holds the “X-Files” star’s exercise equipment and guitar. A bookshelf showcases a painted portrait of the actor.
Artwork fills the walls of the unit, which are painted in a soothing gray-blue.
Other eye-catching details include beamed ceilings, oversized casement windows, and original wood floors.
Built in 1930, the landmark building known as The Ardsley was originally designed and developed by the architect Emery Roth.The full-service, white-glove, residential tower comes with a live-in superintendent, a 24-hour doorman, and concierge. Residents enjoy a state-of-the-art fitness center, children’s playroom, library, storage room, bike room, and laundry room.
With degrees from Princeton and Yale, Duchovny, 60, gained fame as FBI agent Fox Mulder on “The X-Files.” The Golden Globe-winner also appeared in both spinoff movies of the hit sci-fi show.
The best-selling author and star of “Californication” may now be focused on projects on the West Coast. He recently signed with Showtime to develop his recently published novel, “Truly Like Lightning,” into a series for the cable network.
Previously, the New York native and his wife at the time, Téa Leoni, had sold a Malibu retreat in 2008 for $11.5 million to Mel Gibson.
