It’s a wrap: This week’s celebrity home swaps


Former model and Sports Illustrated cover-star Christie Brinkley is selling her Hamptons home. The “Tower Hill” estate in Bridgehampton has hit the market asking $29.5 million. The spread sits on an impressive 20 acres and is comprised of a four-bedroom main house, a four-bedroom guest house, and a separate barn/artist studio.

Actor turned Buddhist activist, Richard Gere, has finally found a buyer for his sprawling waterfront estate in the Hamptons. The sale comes in the midst a battle over his $250 million estate with his estranged wife Carey Lowell. Known as Strongheart Manor, the 6.2-acre North Haven compound hit the market in 2013 asking $65 million. It struggled to find a buyer and underwent several price chops and broker swaps. Its most recent asking price was $36.5 million.


Apparently Gwyneth Paltrow was serious about her commitment to Airbnb! The Villa Taboo she rented in Cannes fits up to 14 guests in seven bedrooms and comes with a hot tub, a really nice (if sparse) wine cellar and a pool so beautiful that even Gwyneth had to ‘gram it. The price? A whopping $10,000-a-night.


The long-locked Scottish comedian and movie star Billy Connolly has sold his Flatiron co-op apartment. It was listed for $4.75 million. His former three-bedroom, three-bathroom apartment at 105 Fifth Avenue, at the corner of Fifth Avenue & 18th Street, is almost surprisingly tasteful considering the comedian’s eccentric tastes.

Kylie Jenner’s Calabasas mansion has hit the market and its asking for a cool $3.9 million. The 18-year-old purchased the home, her first, last March for $2.6 million, notably less than it’s now listed for. In fact, the new price tag is a 50 percent price increase.

House of Cards star and owner of TV’s best pixie-cut, Robin Wright, just paid a premium for a West Village penthouse. The Golden Globe-winner paid $3 million for the two bedroom co-op at 171 West 12th Street.


Like all good models, Derek Zoolander (aka, Ben Stiller) has made the move to the West Village. The actor and his wife, “Zoolander” co-star Christine Taylor, paid $15.1 million for the apartment in the celebrity-filled building, 150 Charles.


Remember Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent’s absolutely dreamy Greenwich Village duplex apartment? Well, no surprise, but the interior design power duo has managed to sell the place at 39 Fifth Avenue for $9.8 million to financier and jewelry designer Charles de Viel Castel.


The recently-listed three-bedroom duplex at 151 East 37th Street may be an “Apartment Called Desire” because of its rich past. American playwright Tennessee Williams lived in the stunning townhouse in the 1940s just prior to the release of his classic, “The Glass Menagerie.”
