Gimme Shelter: 38 Bethune Street, 18 Jones Street, 36 Bedford Street

The New York PostJanuary 25, 2012
Power couple Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber’s extensive downtown home hunt has ended with the purchase of a full-floor loft on Washington Street in TriBeCa.

The acting duo have closed on the 4,315-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bathroom co-op for $3.95 million. The dramatic loft, which has 14-foot ceilings, oversized windows, river views and keyed elevator access, was listed for $4.5 million.

Corcoran Group brokers Chazz Levi and Noble Black declined to comment.

Watts and Schreiber have spent years examining the market. They scoped out units in Flatiron and West Chelsea in the past, and Watts recently checked out three West Village listings on her own.

The actress saw a $14.95 million townhouse at 38 Bethune St., a $6.5 million townhouse at 18 Jones St. and a $6.375 million townhouse at 36 Bedford St. before deciding to buy in TriBeCa instead.

Last week, Watts and Schreiber celebrated the birthday of her brother, photographer Ben Watts, at a party at Meatpacking District hot spot the Double Seven. Mick Jagger also attended the bash.
