Three of today’s celebrity real estate tidbits come courtesy of the ever-industrious property gossip kids at Curbed and the fourth comes from veteran real estate gossip (and reporter) Bob Goldsborough in the Chicago Tribune.
After passing muster with the strict co-op board, preggers Hollywood royal Drew Barrymore and well-bred her art-consultant hubby Will Kopelman set to close on a family-sized duplex on New York City’s posh Park Avenue. The four bedroom and 4.5 bathroom apartment was last listed for $8.3 million.
Frequently published nice-gay decorator Waldo Fernandez listed his own well-dressed, Oberoi Hotel-esque (if architecturally whackadoodle) hideaway in the Hamptons with an asking price of $9.5 million. It’s worth a look-see if only because there’s a sky bridge and a “lotus-filled pond that stirs up images of Kyoto, Viet Nam or Thailand.”
Media mogul Oprah Winfrey continues her apparently permanent push to a full-time life on the west coast continues with the not entirely surprising listing of her multi-unit, mansion-sized duplex condo at Chicago’s Water Tower with an asking price of $7,750,000. The four-unit spread has 9,625 customized square feet with multiple living areas, two kitchens, three en suite guest bedrooms, a total of five full and two half bathrooms, and a dedicated floor for the Madame’s Master Suite. The monthly fees ring up to $9,004 and cover all the amenities of the Ritz Carlton Hotel and Carlton Club.
