Located in a former church that dates to 1860, this duplex penthouse is a "rare, stunning and dramatic residential experience," according to the brokerbabble, and for former renter Jude Law, it was definitely, uh, some kind of experience. You see, this beautiful, stained glass-boasting, 500-square-foot terrace-equipped condo is located in the Novare at 135 West 4th Street, directly beside a New York University freshmen dorm, and if you are an A-list actor, they will watch you and shout at you every time you use your spacious, landscaped terrace (Law's reaction? To throw oranges at the students, naturally). Clearly, 700 new New Yorkers may not be the best neighbors, but the condo does have its perks: Venetian plaster walls, Brazilian walnut floors, a library, three bedrooms, 20-foot ceilings in the living room, a chrome and glass staircase, and the aforementioned stained glass, which is original to the church building. It sold in 2009 for $6.3 million, and it's now on the market for $12.495 million (h/t 6sqft).
