Actor Norman Reedus, best known for “The Walking Dead” and “The Boondock Saints,” is moving up to one of the penthouse condominiums in a Little Italy building he lived in for more than three years, according to city records filed yesterday.

He signed the contract April 18 to buy a penthouse condo at 136 Baxter Street for $3.8 million from Andreas Veith, the former CEO of Hypo Real Estate Capital Corporation. The listing broker for the sale is unknown, but the Corcoran Group previously listed the unit for $4.25 million in March 2012.

Reedus sold a two-bedroom, 1,558-square-foot condo on the building’s second floor in January for $2.08 million. That apartment’s current owner is Dana Arbib and an entity called Difd Trust, StreetEasy shows.

The 2,579-square-foot three-bedroom duplex penthouse features a fireplace, 10-foot timber beamed ceilings, red oak floors and 600 square feet of private outdoor space near the main living room, the Corcoran listing said.

The seven-story building, known as the Machinery Exchange, was constructed in 1915 and housed used manufacturing equipment. Veteran art dealer Max Protetch and Veith led a conversion of the building in 2007 to 14 condos.

Reedus or his lawyer Lewis Kuper of Goldberg Weprin Finkel Goldstein LLP could not be immediately reached for comment.

  • Seriously

    Yeah, let’s put out there his address so someone unbalanced can seek him out at his home.

  • Respectful Fan

    Hi. I think you could respect his privacy by taking his address out of it. His child lives there too. He deserves respect and shouldn’t have to worry about some crazy fans harassing them at home.

  • Really??

    Ummm why would you even contact him about buying a condo? He has enough crazy fans, let’s not give him his address.
