Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s pair of Manhattan penthouses has found a buyer in less than 90 days. The apartments have just gone into contract for $18 million, and are slated for a quick close. The listing brokers are Douglas Elliman’s Noble Black, David Son, Jennifer Stillman and Cory Cahlon.
Chrissy and John first bought the first penthouse unit for $9 million in 2018 and the second in 2020 for $7.7 million. They are situated in a 9-unit condo conversion, the Brewer Carriage House, in the trendy, boutique-packed heart of New York’s Nolita nabe.
The showbiz power couple planned to combine the two apartments, but nowadays spend most of their time on the West Coast, so have decided to scrap the renovation idea and sell up. When combined, the units will boast 6,100 square feet plus more than 3,300 square feet of outdoor space on a rooftop terrace.
Proposed combination plans call for half a dozen bedrooms, including a spacious primary suite with fireplace and walk-in closet, and six and a half bathrooms. In addition to the main living and entertaining spaces on the upper level, plans call for a nearly 850-square-foot family room on the lower level that’s complete with fireplace and wet bar, while the roughly 3,300-square-foot fully landscaped roof terrace, accessed via a glass bulkhead that funnels light down into the great room, has lots of faux-grassing, a couple of large decks and an outdoor kitchen.
The platinum-voiced crooner and the fashion model turned cookbook author and social media powerhouse will hardly be homeless after the Nolita sale. Last year, they sold their former Beverly Hills home — it once belonged to Rihanna — for $16.8 million, and in 2020, the couple shelled out $17.5 million for a brand-new contemporary villa of almost 11,000 square feet in L.A.’s Beverly Hills Post Office area.
As for New York digs, Legend told the Wall Street Journal that the couple plan to look for another place in New York that won’t require so much renovating.
