Revisiting 10 Celebrity Homes in NYC with Epic Renovations
Most everyone likes some good celebrity real estate gawking, so in that spirit and in honor of Curbed's first-ever Renovation Week, we've rounded up 10 of the best finished and on-going renovations in celeb-owned homes.
374 Broome Street
When John Legend and Chrissy Teigen purchased their condo in Nolita's Brewster Carriage House in 2012, the space was monochromatic andsubdued. For a celebrity couple as cheeky as Legend and Teigen, that just wouldn't do. The duo brought in Don Stewart and architect Winka Dubbeldam to imbue the space with an old-school industrial look that included dark woods and brass and bronze accents. The overhaul also included turning a bathroom into a walk-in closet and adding a wall to create a vestibule. The couple listed the apartment in June. It's currently on the market for $3.995 million, down from $4.495 million.
39 Fifth Avenue
Celebrity interior designers Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent listed their stunning Greenwich Village duplex in November, unveiling the apartment's (unsurprisingly) lovely interiors, and a renovation that combined an adjacent one-bedroom apartment with their penthouse. Berkus and Brent are looking for $10.5 million, which is $4.5 million more than they paid for it in 2013.
