John Legend And Chrissy Teigen Spend $8M On Another Penthouse In Their Manhattan Building
Celebrity power couple John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have some extra space to overcome social distance, report New York real estate site The Real Deal. The couple spent $ 7.7 million on a second penthouse in their building in Manhattan’s Nolita neighborhood to support the first.
The building is Brewster Carriage House, and the Legends must love it because not only do they now own two penthouses but before seizing the first one, they would also have owned a one-bedroom apartment there. They would have destroyed the first penthouse in May 2018, when they spent just over $ 9 million.
Legend and Teigen’s new penthouse
Legend and Teigen’s new penthouse spans nearly 3,500 square feet, stacked on the fifth and sixth floors of the building. Despite its lower closing cost, this square footage makes it significantly larger than its former location, which, on the other hand, measures just over 2,600 square feet (and occupies the rest of the sixth floor). It has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, and like the other penthouse apartment in the building also has access to the roof.
The penthouse, which was alternately known as PHB and PHN, was first marketed by its previous owner in September of last year, when it was listed for the asking price of 8, $ 5 million. This means that Legend and Teigen got a bit of a deal on the spot, which would have expressed interest for the first time in December before signing the deal in mid-March. Here is how it was described in its official list:
“PHN is the ultimate downtown residence with its blend of modern and historic elements in this characterful building. Upon arrival, one is impressed by the proportions of the living room. Superb personalized windows, original exposed brickwork, Corinthian cast iron columns, wide wooden floor and ceilings with exposed beams of 12 ft +/- complete this unique house. “
Other features include a large media room, a skylight in the master suite and a 1,500 square foot rooftop terrace. And you can get an idea of what the penthouse looks like in the video below (from 2012), courtesy of the GothamMOTION YouTube channel:
