The Upper West Side apartment of Chaim Potok, the late author best known for penning “The Chosen,” sold at its asking price of $615,000.

The one-bedroom, one-bathroom in a prewar brownstone co-op at 136 West 81st Street features 11-foot ceilings and a fireplace. The pad spans a full floor of the 10-unit, four-story building, which was built in 1900.

Potok, who was also an ordained rabbi, wrote several best-selling novels about Hasidic Judaism. He died in 2002.

Adena Potok was the seller and Scott Kern was the buyer, according to city property records. The New York Post reported the sale, which took place in January, and said Kern was a financier.

Douglas Elliman’s Andreas Mann and Bradley Miles represented the seller. Andrew Anderson, Bruce Ehrmann and Christopher Morales of Douglas Elliman represented the buyer. [NYP]Dusica Sue Malesevic
