Singer-songwriter John Legend just took a step up from his Scarano-on-the-Bowery apartment. The Grammy-winner just purchased a 1BR/2.5BA apartment at The Brewster Carriage House on Broome Street for slightly under $2.5 million, according to the Post. The Scaranopartment had one more bedroom, but the Brewster Carriage House 1BR features about 600 more square feet and interiors with a little more character, in our opinion. In fact, it looks like the designers at the BCH resisted the urge to shoehorn an additional bedroom into the apartment at the expense of the living area or master bedroom, in order to keep up with the 2.5 bathrooms. Legend will no doubt need some space to place his piano and/or Grammys.
