Perhaps the new owners of Lucy Liu’s two condominiums in a converted Flatiron loft building can figure out why she didn’t combine the units.

The star of CBS’s “Elementary,” a contemporary take on Sherlock Holmes, went into contract to sell the homes at 29 West 19th Street, according to Variety. They were listed for a combined $5.9 million.

One apartment is directly above the other, and they are two of only five units in the luxury building. Both apartments have three bedrooms, 10-foot ceilings, and together add up to a combined total of over 3,600 square feet. One unit also has a private keyed elevator.

Liu, a Queens native, bought the first full-floor apartment in early 2005 and the second about a year later, paying a for a total of about $4 million, according to Variety. The units were listed in July and October, respectively.

The buyer, or buyers, are currently unknown. CORE’s Emily Beare and Jessica Chestler had the listings. The building’s penthouse is also on the market with Stribling for $4.5 million.

Last summer, Liu bought a two-bedroom condo in a restored Beaux-Arts building, also in the Flatiron District, according to Variety.

And just last month, Liu sold a four-bedroom home in Studio City, Los Angeles, that she owned for almost two decades. The Craftsman estate sold for $3.06 million. [Variety] – Decca Muldowney
