“Sex and the City” heartthrob and legendary ballet dancer, Mikhail Baryshnikov, has just purchased a pied-a-terre co-op at the Armstead on the Upper West Side.

The apartment inside the full-service 24-hour doorman-attended building at 245 West 104th Street was listed for $1.15 million but, according to the Post, Baryshnikov reportedly paid $1.265 million for the place. 

We can only guess that he and his wife, Lisa Rinehart, just couldn’t resist this designer-decorated, two-bedroom, 1,125-square-foot unit that boasts gorgeous windows overlooking Broadway and a nearby promenade—after all, he won it via a bidding war with 12 other prospects. Talk about not taking no for an answer!

Baryshnikov, who played Carrie Bradshaw’s lover in last season’s production of “Sex and the City,” is an Oscar-nominated actor, in addition to being what some hail as one of the best male ballet dancers ever.
