Mike Myers may not have great taste in sequels, but he makes up for it with some real estate savvy. For a guy who tickled audiences' funny bones on SNL and in Wayne's World and Austin Powers, the comedian's New York duplex isn't very funny. Rather, it's absolutely gorgeous. First reported by the Journal, his three-bedroom, four-bathroom penthouse, atop a mid-rise building on Mercer Street, just hit the market asking $16.995 million. Highlights include custom bookshelves, rooms made bright by a skylight, and a picturesque roof deck with a pergola and verdant landscaping. He bought the apartment in 2007 for just under $8 million, so even counting renovation costs, he'll likely make out pretty well.
