Celebrity Real Estate Wrap: Bracco Out of Bridgehampton

1) It's a long way from New Jersey, which is probably why The Sopranos' Lorraine Bracco is putting her five-bedroom Bridgehampton home on the market for $3.25 million. The Butter Lane abode, "in the middle of Bridgehampton horse country," has an acre of landscaped land outside, which abuts an 11-acre reserve. Pool, jacuzzi, media room?it's all there. Before buying, Bracco had rented the house from heiress Anne Hearst. Friends, it is never to early to start thinking about the summer home. The Beach is coming! [Braden Keil/Gimme Shelter]

2) In this age of real estate micro-marketing, you have to go even more niche than, say, dudes who are into cars. With that in mind, developer Young Woo & Associates and designer Annabelle Selldorf bring you a new building on the corner of 11th Avenue and 24th Street?16 units built for celebrities. How? An elevator will let owners drive their cars into garages connected to their apartments, thereby avoiding the paparazzi. Absolutely genius, and only "mid fives." [Postings/Fred Bernstein]

3) The Observer's Max Abelson already reported on Conan O'Brien buying the penthouse in the Upper West Side's Majestic, where he already owns a 17th-floor pad, but now Braden Keil reports that his neighbors are putting up some resistance, "because they're jealous and spiteful."
