Deeds & Don'ts: $mart Celeb$

Stars: They’re just like us, right? (Oops, wrong magazine.) Unlike mere mortals, bold-faced names can really bolster their bank accounts simply by unloading a premier property. Julia Stiles recently did so, pocketing $2.7 million for her three-bedroom duplex with two wood-burning fireplaces at 310 East 15th Street (she purchased it a decade ago for $1.995 million). In SoHo, Jonah Hill’s full-floor Howard Street loft was recently listed for $12,000 a month; it boasts 13-foot ceilings and a fireplace, but no doorman expecting a holiday tip. A few blocks away, Kirsten Dunst’s Canal Street penthouse has just been snapped up by a new tenant.

Deeds & Don'ts: Ghostly Abodes

Deeds & Don'ts: Ghostly Abodes

Ghoulish goings-on are not uncommon when it comes to real estate in the big, bad city. Predatory agents, surprise assessments, and untrustworthy superintendents can make urban dwelling a decidedly scary proposition. But nothing’s more frightening than the otherworldly spirits that some people believe live among us.

Deeds & Don'ts: Rennovated Properties

Deeds & Don'ts: Rennovated Properties

No matter their style, good architects design for the lives that are to be lived in the space. Put another way, a home is well designed only if it suits the lives of its owners—not the other way around. In keeping with the theme of this issue, here are places and spaces that have been beautifully designed or renovated by talented architects, designers or builders. But don’t take our word for it: With the fall real estate market underway, October is a great time to take advantage of weekends packed with open houses.

Deeds & Don'ts: Star-Struck Sales

Deeds & Don'ts: Star-Struck Sales

What’s jammed with celebrities and on the rise? The elevator at 155 Franklin Street in Tribeca, otherwise known as the Sugar Loaf Building. Dating from 1882 and located on a cobblestone block between Hudson and Varick streets, the condo is luring headliners left and right. Soon after Taylor Swift took up residence in the 8,300-square-foot penthouse (which she bought from Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson for $19.95 million in March), Orlando Bloom reportedly scooped up a $4.875 million, 2,400-square-foot, three-bedroom loft with wood-beamed ceilings on the fourth floor. Meanwhile, director Steven Soderbergh is hopping off for good, recently selling his 3,500-square-foot, third-floor apartment for $6 million.

The city’s new condo developments are turning heads more than ever before.
