Celebrity Real Estate Wrap: Gisele Gives Up, Bono Sells, More!

New, 3 comments

1) The most famous hot tub and hammock in the West Village is no more. Well, they still exist, but you can't have them (unless you pony up upwards of $7.9 million). After getting pricechopped to hell, Gisele Bundchen's West 11th Street triplex has been pulled off the market. Pour one out for this fallen homey. [Gimme Shelter/Braden Keil]

2) Bono traded his El Dorado apartment (home/not home to Moby) for a more fancy Upper West Side co-op, the San Remo, a few years back, and now he's finally cashing out on his old pad. The 2,322sqft three-bedroom apartment first hit the market in March 2006 for $5.95 million, and it recently sold for $4.9 million. [Manhattan Transfers/Max Abelson]

3) Nearly two years after he signed a contract to buy it, Sting has finally closed on his five-bedroom spread in the tower at 15 Central Park West (yes, we would've pegged him for a "house" guy, too). Gordon Sumner paid $26.5 million for it, and he still owns this beauty a little up the street. [The Real Estate/Lysandra Ohrstrom]

4) Is Village resident Liv Tyler the latest in a long list of Manhattan celebrities lost to the cozy breeding ground of Brooklyn? Word across the pond is she's checked out a townhouse at 140 Columbia Heights, but there may be holes in this story. [Brownstoner]

5) Think doodling in class gets you nowhere? The creator of Dora the Explorer just bought a condo at Extell's Ariel West for $4.395 million. The next time you buy your nephew a Diego toy, think about that sweet, sweet apartment. [The Real Estate/Max Abelson]
