Celebrity Real Estate Wrap: Your Own Hit Factory

1) The dudes behind the music in Sleepless in Seattle, The American President and the upcoming movie version of Hairspray also know a thing or two about interior design. Scott Wittman's and Marc Shaiman's three-bedroom Chelsea apartment has been featured in Elle Decor, and now it can be featured in your portfolio, because it's up for sale for $5.7 million. Seems a little high, but don't forget about the built-in plasmas, bar and sound-proof recording studio. Paging Lenny Kravitz. [Braden Keil/Gimme Shelter]

2) SNL producer and famous daughter Marci Klein sold her penthouse in the American Thread Building for $9.9 million. The apartment, made up of two combined units, has three bedrooms and 3,500-square-feet of screening room, fireplaces and fabulousness. Klein is headed for a bigger place in Soho. The deal was handled by ... David Geffen? Looks like he's been doing a little freelancing. [Page 6]

3) Everyone's favorite young Russian real estate juggernaut, Anna Anisimova, is reportedly leaving New York for good and heading to Beverly Hills to start a perfume company. The brief von Furstenberg buyer will hold on to her $15 million Time Warner Center apartment as an investment. Must be nice. [Page 6]

4) Yankees right-fielder and Gary Sheffield exiler Bobby Abreu already has an apartment in One Beacon Court, sure, but he bought that before he got traded to New York. Now that he's living here year-round, he snagged a three-bedroom on East 53rd Street for $2.455 million. No word on the immediate fate of the pied-a-terre. [Movers/S. Jhoanna Robledo]
