Known for his Emmy-winning role as John-Boy on “The Waltons” and as Agent Frank Gaad on “The Americans,” Richard Thomas just bought a $1.85 million pied-à-terre on Billionaires’ Row — quite the place to say your goodnights.
The fancy co-op is in the landmarked Alwyn Court, at 180 West 58th St. It was originally asking $2.995 million in 2017 before shaving a million from its price.
Thomas is now based in Santa Fe, but New York is where he grew up, and where his parents — ballet dancers — owned the New York School of Ballet.
He even went to Columbia College, studying Chinese and then English, before dropping out to act full time.
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom prewar home opens to an entrance gallery, leading to an open living/dining area, where a wood-burning fireplace is flanked by custom bookcases.
There’s also a windowed chef’s kitchen and a sitting area in the main bedroom. Original details include hardwood floors, moldings and high ceilings.
The French Renaissance-style, terra cotta-facade building is on the National Register of Historic Places and dates to 1909.
The listing broker was Louise Phillips Forbes, of Brown Harris Stevens.
