Celebrity Real Estate Wrap: Glenn Closes

1) Glenn Close, currently breaking balls every week on "The Shield," traded in her two-bedroom Charles St. pied-à-terre for the celeb-friendly co-op at 211 Central Park West. She bought her West Village spot five years ago for $899,000, and sold it for $1.9 million. Her new two-bedroom, which is "on the small side," had an asking price of $5.9 million. We bet building resident Jerry Seinfeld keeps more cash than that in a shoebox under his mattress. [Braden Keil/Gimme Shelter]
2) "Sex and the City" actor David Eigenberg (he played Steve Brady, not that we need to tell you that) is off to California, but before that he unloaded his West 17th Street duplex (right) that he restored himself for $1.1 million. Check out the stuff he added: wrought-iron-and-glass doors from the show's set, a multi-tiered roof deck with an outdoor shower and a claw-foot tub in the kitchen (not in the pictures, unfortunately). Who doesn't love an actor/handyman? [S.Jhoanna Robledo/NYMag]
3) Many brokers aren't biting on the rumor that Lenny Kravitz is about to buy the $50 million Duke Semans mansion. Some are hitting a little below the belt, literally: "It's like his dating record. He loves 'em, then leaves 'em before he commits." Yikes. Tough room. Is this thing on? [Braden Keil/Gimme Shelter]
