Gwyneth Paltrow Is Consciously Uncoupling From Her Tribeca Penthouse

New, 14 comments

The actress and lifestyle maven is selling the Tribeca apartment she owns with ex-husband Chris Martin

Nearly a decade after purchasing a penthouse in Tribeca's River Lofts tower, it looks like Goop head honcho Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay singer Chris Martin are finally unloading the property. The couple, who split in 2014, purchased the nearly 4,000 square foot home in 2007 for $5.1 million, per city records; it hit the market today with a much, much higher asking price of $14.25 million.

Why the price jump? Two words: interior upgrade. The couple commissioned design dream team Roman & Williams to give the entire space a revamp, and while there are no listings photos yet (damn), the R&W team described their changes thusly:

For an actress, her musician husband, and their children, Roman and Williams completed a total stripdown to stud and redesign of what was fundamentally a drywall box (with good light). Designing and coordinating all interior architecture and custom decoration of the project with sheer energy and completely rule of everything mundane. With light use of mouldings, glassy paint and fuzzy nap zones they embedded this Tribeca apartment with gravitas, care and lllluuuuxury making it suitable for both entertaining and for the needs of a young family.

Yes, you read that right—there are fuzzy nap zones. (And, per a 2010 Vogue cover story, there's also a gourmet kitchen where Paltrow, now a best-selling cookbook author, presumably tested recipes and the like.)

Per the listing, here are some of the apartment's other features: "painted white floors"; a library with custom bookshelves and a skylight; a private terrace; a bedroom with a "custom pressed tin ceiling"; en-suite bathrooms for every bedroom; and a "Built-In Sonos Sound System," because of course a musician would have a built-in sound system in their house.

Here's the floorplan, which is the closest we're getting to a peek at the penthouse as of right now:
