Stars are renting their abodes, sometimes to other boldfacers, as Sarah Jessica Parker and Sean Combs put their places up for sale.
The living room of the penthouse duplex in the Chelsea Mercantile building that hockey star Scott Gomez is renting out for $23,000 a month.
Today’s on-the-go celebs don’t always sell if circumstances require a gig out of town or the need for new space. Kirsten Dunst, for example, has put her two-bedroom penthouse at 533 Canal Street on the market for $12,500 a month. The loft, which comes fully or partially furnished, has river views, 11-foot ceilings, and a windowed chef’s kitchen. The listing broker for the unit, available for a minimum six-month lease, is Jared Seligman, of Douglas Elliman (212-891-7104).
Hockey star Scott Gomez is also renting his penthouse duplex—for $23,000 a month. The three-bedroom, three-bath condo is located in the Chelsea Mercantile building, where Katie Holmes now lives with Suri. This unit also has a notable celebrity past. Top fashion designer Marc Jacobs rented the apartment for a year; pop star Nick Jonas did too (at another time). The unit comes with great entertaining space, a fabulous furnished terrace, and knockout river views. Corcoran’s Erik Ternon (212-444-7977) and Noble Black (212-444-7926) have the listing.
A view of 15 Central Park West, where Robert De Niro and wife Grace Hightower are living until their new abode, down the block at 88 Central Park West, has been fully renovated.
Robert De Niro and his wife, Grace Hightower, have moved into a 35th-floor rental at 15 Central Park West—for a whopping $125,000 a month. Part of the space, owned by steel mogul Leroy Schecter, was once home to Yankees star Alex Rodriguez (before the A and B units were combined). The apartment is also on the market for $65 million—a hefty $30 million off its original $95 million. The De Niros have been on the move since their apartment at the Brentmore was destroyed in a 2012 fire. They’ll be at 15 Central Park West for a year, until their new abode, at 88 Central Park West, has been fully renovated. The listing broker was Paula Del Nunzio, of Brown Harris Stevens (212-906-9207), who declined to comment.
The dining room at 20 East 10th Street, the home of Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, which is on the market for $22 million.
Other celebrities, like Sarah Jessica Parker and her husband, Matthew Broderick, are also moving. They’ve just put their historic Greenwich Village townhouse on the market for $22 million. The manse, at 20 E. 10th Street, was purchased in 2011 and was listed for sale only a year later. Now it’s back on the market at a lower price. The five-story, 6,800-square-foot brownstone dates to 1846, but the interiors are modern and include lots of fabulous storage space for one of the city’s best-known fashionistas. As for guests, there’s a whole floor for them, with three bedrooms and en-suite baths. The listing brokers are Douglas Elliman’s Fredrik Eklund (212-727-6158) and John Gomes (212-891-7676).
Finally, Sean “Diddy” Combs is selling his chic bachelor pad in the Park Imperial, at 230 W. 56th Street, where Daniel “007” Craig once lived. The price is $7.5 million, down from $7.99 million. Although 2,292 square feet, the space is set up as a two, rather than three-bedroom, unit. A grand piano and wet bar are the centerpieces, making it a perfect place for grandscale entertaining. The listing broker is Dolly Lenz, of Dolly Lenz Real Estate (917-885-9169).
