Celebrity Real Estate Wrap: Moe Buys, J-Ro Sells

1) Photographer Cindy Sherman has put the headache of selling her Soho co-op behind her. Stepping up to the plate at a purchase price of $4.75 million is Hank Azaria, best known for divorcing Helen Hunt and starring in the classic Fox comedy "Herman's Head." OK, and "The Simpsons." Sherman lived and worked in the 4,100-square-foot Mercer St. loft (right) for 14 years, building a studio right into the place. Hank Azaria's use for that studio? Let's just call it at porn, shall we? [William Neuman/Big Deal]
2) After a deal with Ellen Barkin and Ron Perelman fell through, Julia Roberts has found another buyer for her nine-room Edwardian-style penthouse on lower Fifth Avenue. Listed since May 2004 at $4.995 million, the renovated pre-war pad has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a formal dining room, maid's room and a gourmet eat-in kitchen. Very white-glove building, too. Julia has packed up the hubby and kids and moved them all to Gramercy Park. [Braden Keil/Gimme Shelter]
3) Brat Packer Andrew McCarthy sold his 19th Century West Village townhouse for $3.25 million, instantly making him our favorite actor to ever star in a movie where a guy falls in love with a mannequin. The 161-year-old Bedford Street spread was bought after only a few weeks on the market, and the four-story home features original moldings and mantles, seven wood-burning fireplaces (that's a lot of s'mores) and a garden.

4) Braden Keil busts on the Times a little for that whole Lenny Kravitz thing. Still no contract on the $50 million Duke Semans mansion. [Braden Keil/Gimme Shelter]
