Abby Leigh, noted visual artist and widow of Tony-winning composer Mitch Leigh, is listing her co-op on the Upper West Side for $6.3 million.

The three-bedroom, three-bathroom apartment at the 32-unit, 14-story building at 27 West 67th Street boasts 17-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, custom lighting and a rooftop terrace.

Leigh bought the unit for $4.8 million in 2014 and then renovated it, the New York Post reported.

The Corcoran Group’s Steven Cohen and Robert Varvara have the listing.

The artist, whose work hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim and the Whitney, also has another property on the market: her five-story townhouse at 49 East 68th Street on the Upper East Side. The six-bedroom, 10.5-bathroom mansion has more than 12,500 square feet of space and is asking $29.8 million, chopped from $38 million, the Post reported.

Leigh bought the red brick and limestone townhouse, which also has a half-size basketball court, for nearly $1.1 million in 1999, according to the Post.

The Corcoran Group’s Steven Cohen, Jerry Huang and Robert Varvara have the townhouse listing.

Last November, the artist picked up a 5,300-square-foot, five-bedroom Upper West Side duplex for $8 million. The castle-like building at 455 Central Park West, which was once home to the New York Cancer Hospital, has 17 condominium units. [NYP]Dusica Sue Malesevic
