Oscar-winning actor Cuba Gooding, Jr. recently toured a Soho co-op loft asking $8.995 million. The 6,500-square-foot co-op has five bedrooms and five bathrooms and is owned by artist Edwina Sandys, the granddaughter of Sir Winston Churchill.
Gooding — whose “show me the money!” catchphrase in “Jerry Maguire” is part of Hollywood lore — currently lives in California with his wife and three children, and is on the lookout for a New York home, the New York Post reported. The apartment, which boasts marble floors as well as a 1,500-square-foot mezzanine, is sprinkled with paintings that Sandys made of Churchill.
It was originally listed in September for just shy of $11 million with Douglas Elliman’s Gabrielle Frank and Eric Liebman, according to the Post. [NYP, 1st item] – Hiten Samtani
