Last year, actor Matthew Modine took a bold move in selling his 1,668-square-foot condo--he created a promotional video that starred whom other than the "Full Metal Jacket" star himself.
In it, he points out some of the home's most stand-out features, such as its 17-plus-foot ceilings and private outdoor space. He ends the video saying that he's off to Madison Square Garden to "watch the New York Knickerbockers."

The home also includes an all-glass kitchen and Nordic Ash flooring. Check it out!
