An Upper East Side home formerly owned by award-winning “Mad Men” actor Bryan Batt has listed for $599,000.

The current seller, jewelry company exec Jennifer Senenko, bought the one-bedroom unit from Batt himself in 2010 — five years before the end of the still-popular AMC series — for $450,000.

The residence, at 308 E. 79th St., is in a prewar building off Second Avenue that dates to 1928.

Batt — who hails from New Orleans and is known for his elegant Hollywood award season dinner parties in the stately home that he shares there with his husband Tom Cianfichi — purchased the 675-square-foot co-op in 1988.

That was long before he made his name as the closeted Sterling Cooper art director Salvatore Romano, who is ultimately fired by John Hamm’s Don Draper character at the request of a client who made an unaccepted sexual advance towards Romano.

This first-floor apartment comes with high ceilings — and “no need for climbing stairs, providing easy access from the entrance your your front door,” the listing notes.

There’s also a “cozy” windowed kitchen off the living room and a windowed bath — all renovated. Building amenities include a doorman, a gym, a garden sanctuary, storage and a bike room.
