Celebrity Real Estate: Kelsey Grammer, David Geffen, Craig Newmark
By Laura Vecsey
Kelsey Grammer Green Lights NYC Sale
With good news from Amazon that his streaming series “The Last Tycoon” is good to go for a full season, Kelsey Grammer is ready to make a change in New York City. The actor has listed his West Chelsea residence for $9.75 million.
The former “Frasier” star says the 3,000-square-foot condo is no longer large enough for his family, which includes two youngsters among his total of six kids. The 3-bedroom apartment is in a 23-story luxury glass-tower building in Chelsea. Grammer paid $6.4 million in 2010, a year before he married his fourth wife, Kayte.
Free Man in the Hamptons
David Geffen has no shortage of cash to plunk down on fantastic homes – or yachts. Now the music and movie industry mogul has settled on a $70 million oceanfront estate on the beaches of Long Island.
Geffen, who owns homes in Malibu, Beverly Hills and a mega-penthouse on Fifth Avenue in addition to his outsized private yacht, bought the Hamptons home of Josephine Chaus. The clothing line mogul passed away last year at age 64, leaving her beloved estate up for a well-heeled buyer. Geffen had previously owned a large estate nearby, but sold it to developers eager to stash more celebrity homes in the pricey Hamptons.
Not Listed On Craigslist!
When it came time to find a New York City pad, Craigslist founder Craig Newmark bypassed his mastermind search site and went right to the source: A NYC power broker. Now the billionaire and his wife, Eileen, is set up in a $5.9 million Greenwich Village co-op.
The 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom duplex is on a small brick building on a lovely street. The New Jersey native has long lived in San Francisco, but the return to the East Coast will at least be made less stressful by the backyard garden courtyard outside his door.
