Only two superstars like Chrissy Teigen and John Legend — and few cities in the world but New York — could command $4.5 million for a one-bedroom apartment.
Recently, the most expensive condo in San Francisco sold for $2.3 million in less than a month. But the couple’s Nolita apartment in the Brewster Carriage House just hit the market for nearly twice as much, the New York Post reported, and it could sell quickly too.
Though only 2,000 square feet with one bedroom and two bathrooms, the modern luxe apartment has the added cache of being the abode of the glamorous supermodel and musician. The home itself is also a star: Architectural Digest recently featured the unit on its cover.
Exposed brick and wood keep the historic details of the carriage house front and center, though every decorating detail says “celebrity.” The open floor plan is enhanced by plenty of windows, a cozy gas fireplace and smart home technology.
Reclaimed wood, cast iron columns and brass lighting feature prominently in the chef’s kitchen and bar that open into the living and dining area. Despite the small space, the home includes a butler’s pantry, laundry room, walk-in closet and a large alcove that can flex between being an office and guest quarters.
The master suite is anything but cramped or devoid of luxury. A deep cast iron soaking tub, walk-in shower and radiant floor heating keep the bathroom extravagant.
Despite the home’s apparent charms, Teigen and Legend are ready for a change of scenery. Not long ago they sold their Hollywood Hills home, too. Kids are soon to come, Teigen commented recently, and for that, they’ll need more space.
Jason Walker of Compass holds the listing.
