We’ve resolved to round up some of the best NY celebrity homes of 2013. Whether you’re into sprawling lawns, customized interiors or insane in-ground pools, it’s time for a recap!
1. Frank Sinatra’s Penthouse Sells for $5.5M
One of the major selling points of the property (besides ownership and design influence by Mr. Sinatra, of course) is the apartment’s unusual spiral staircase. It may look a bit familiar– this beauty is the exact kind used in Apple stores!
2. Tom Brady and Gisele’s $14M One Madison Apt.
This gorgeous apartment offers three bedrooms on the 47th floor of the newly re-launched building and also boasts interior designs by Thomas Juul-Hansen.
3. Kate Shin and Ivanka Trump Collaborate on $39M Waterfall Mansion
The NYC townhouse was originally built in 1899 as an incredible masterpiece, and it is now named for its most unique feature: it’s 23-foot indoor waterfall. In 2008, Kate Shin purchased the home to transform it into something even more special, incorporating green, modern designs with dazzling architectural features.
4. Roman Abramovich’s $72M French Renaissance Home
Berwind Mansion was built in the mid 1890s and was decorated by Jules Allard et Fils, a notable French decorating firm.
5. $8M Hamptons Windmill House Visited by Marilyn Monroe
This Hamptons home offers an unusual feature that most residences can’t compete with: it was an 1830s windmill! The transformed space has drawn celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, Ralph Lauren, Alec Baldwin, Arthur Miller and Kurt Vonnegut.
6. $5.7M Miles Redd Pink Pony Hair Apt
Apartment #3CE at 1 Morton Square features the work of luxury designer Miles Redd for Jonathan Lupo. Lupo purchased the first apartment in 2004, then the second in 2010; this vibrant setup is the product of two combined apartments that were renovated into one large space.
7. $114M Florida Panthers Manse with Onyx Elevator
Though the residence only stretches 40 feet wide, it offers generous square footage (19 rooms in total) and an outdoor terrace space on a grand three-tiered rooftop lounge area. The space features a total of seven bedrooms, several decked-out bathrooms, walk-in closets that also serve as panic rooms, a kitchen with a brick pizza oven, a saltwater pool and spa and a truly glamorous elevator lined in onyx.
8. Annie Leibovitz’s $29.9M Wedge-Shaped Townhouse
This listing is a combination of two townhouses featuring a total of 10,200 square feet. The wedge-shaped townhouse features a private entrance with two fireplaces and two bedrooms.
9. Billy Joel’s $23.5M Beach House
Billy Joel’s Sagaponack, NY beach house is nothing less than totally picturesque. While the property only offers one acre, it boasts a gorgeous green lawn surrounded by beach and incredible ocean views (no need for worrying about nosy neighbors)!
10. Anne Hathaway’s $4.5M Clocktower Hideaway
Hathaway paid $4.1M, and now she’s attempting to flip it for $4.5M to the right Brooklyn buyer.
