Julian Casablancas, frontman for New York City-based rock band the Strokes, has sold his Greenwich Village co-op for $1.25 million, Real Estalker reported.

The bi-level property, located at 29 East 9th Street, was listed by Lori Braverman at LJBLAW. includes a large foyer, a sunken living room, beamed 18-foot ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace, according to Real Estalker. The renovated kitchen, on the apartment’s upper level, features marble counter tops and a breakfast nook that overlooks the living room.

The buyer was listed as Richard Armitage, but it was unclear if that refers to noted British actor Richard Armitage, known for his work on “The Hobbit,” the website said.

The full-service apartment complex has also played host to playwright Terrence McNally, “Sex & the City” columnist Candace Bushnell and fellow “Sex & the City” alum, actor Chris Noth, Real Estalker said.
