Model-turned-DJ Sky Nellor has sold her tricked-out, 2,000-square-foot penthouse duplex at 121 W. 20th St. for its $2.75 million asking price.
Artist Judy Blotnick and her children, Emily and Greg, snapped up the two-bedroom, 2 1/2-bathroom Chelsea condo. The stylish unit with dark bamboo floors features a dramatic, double-height living room with a fireplace and a floating staircase. There’s also a dining room, a chef’s kitchen, a media room, a sound system and Venetian plaster throughout. The unit also comes with a 600-square-foot private roof deck and a steam room.
The apartment was on the market for less than a month. Nellor bought it for $1.67 million in 2008.
We hear . . .
That Claire Danes has found a renter for her apartment at 42 Wooster St. The actress and wife of actor Hugh Dancy had previously listed it for sale at $5.99 million . . . That Gina Gershon as well as Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss have toured Michael Holtz’s four apartments, not yet combined, which make up the $14.5 million entire second floor of 165 Charles St. Combined, they total almost 5,000 square feet. Broker Susan Green of Town Residential declined comment . . . That celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse feeds brokers Michele, Sabrina and Samantha Kleier in his 2,500-bottle wine cellar on the Season 5 premiere of HGTV’s “Selling New York.” The Kleiers have Lagasse’s East 61st Street home (6,900 square feet plus 1,000 square foot of outdoor space) on the market for $13.5 million . . . That Cooking Channel star David Rocco will host dinner this weekend for a small group of friends, including Chris Mack, Jennifer Creel and Jill Fairchild, at a Tuscan-style villa in Sag Harbor that he’s rented for the month while he’s waiting out a remodeling of his own kitchen. He’ll then be in Italy to wrap up his Amalfi Coast series, and the Sag Harbor home is being listed for sale at $2.395 million with the Corcoran Group’s Gary DePersia.
Actress Jessica Chastain, an Oscar nominee for “The Help,” has captivated paparazzi on her home hunt. But after checking out several residences on the Upper West Side, we hear that Chastain — just named the newest face of Yves Saint Laurent — could now have her heart set on buying a luxury pad downtown.
Chastain is starring as Catherine Sloper in the Broadway revival of “The Heiress” later this year.
Fashion designer Donna Karan came to see 80 Washington Place, where, sources say, she gushed over Clodagh Design’s Zen-inspired interiors.
The landmarked, four-story West Village townhouse, listed for $28 million, was originally built in 1900 and once home to composer John Philip Sousa. The current owner, developer William Rainero, added three stories and completely renovated the single-family home.
Listing broker Lisa Simonsen of Prudential Douglas Elliman declined to comment.
He just tweeted about his pad being for rent, but we doubt author Bret Easton Ellis wrote the overblown broker babble for the East Village studio. The unit, listed for $5,000 a month, is a 950-square-foot loft with a 400-square-foot terrace in the American Felt Building at 114 E. 13th St.
“The area where this apartment is located actually includes eight different neighborhoods, as this former factory building is ideally situated at the crossroads of Gramercy, Union Square and the East and West Village,” the listing claims.
Investment-bank honcho Blair Effron and has wife, Cheryl Cohen, have snapped up a big piece of trophy real estate on the Upper East Side.
Effron has purchased a four-bedroom, 4 1/2-bathroom, 9,000-square-foot co-op at 39 E. 79th St. for around $24 million. The unit, listed for $24.5 million, was on the market for less than two weeks. The residence includes a private landing and double mahogany doors that open into the duplex. There’s also a billiards room and a master suite with two dressing rooms.
Effron, a co-founder of Centerview Partners, and Cohen were previously living at 830 Park Ave.
