It was just two years ago that one of New Jersey’s finest, rocker Jon Bon Jovi, bought a three-bedroom spread at West Village celebrity magnet 150 Charles Street. But it looks like the musician is moving on: His apartment just hit the market (with Corcoran’s Robby Browne team as the broker) asking a cool $17.25 million.
That’s a pretty decent upgrade from Bon Jovi’s purchase price of $12.95 million. Per Corcoran, the duplex apartment has plenty of luxurious touches: There’s an enormous great room with Hudson River views, three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms (the master also has a walk-in closet), and a den area that could be converted to a fourth bedroom. There are windows everywhere, so the place gets plenty of light.
The best part, however, is undoubtedly the outdoor space: The apartment comes with a 1,500-square-foot terrace with stunning views of the city, along with two smaller, less over-the-top patios (including one off the master bedroom). Not too shabby at all.
Bon Jovi has had quite the real estate journey in the past few years: After listing his gigantic Soho penthouse for a staggering $42 million in 2013—and getting no takers—the rocker cut the asking price not once, but twice. The palatial apartment finally sold in 2015, though the buyer ended up re-listing it last year; it’s now going for $38 million.
But his departure from 150 Charles won’t leave too big of a celeb-shaped hole at the once-controversial West Village development: Ben Stiller and model Irina Shayk are two of the big names who’ve bought in the building.
