Celebrity Real Estate: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jackie Kennedy, Roberta Flack
By Laura Vecsey
Leo Lists Again!
Leonardo DiCaprio is slimming down – his real estate holdings, that is. The Oscar-winning actor has added a Studio City home to the list of properties he’s seeking to sell. The 3,400-square-foot mid-century modern is on the market for $2.395 million.
The move comes just weeks after DiCaprio hoisted his Malibu home on the market, where his mother reportedly lived. That home is located on the notable “Billionaires Beach.”
Kennedy Compounds Continue To Make Headlines
Jackie Kennedy was determined to find a countryside getaway for her young family, so she persuaded President John F. Kennedy to agree to purchase a Virginia estate called Wexford. Sadly, the young president and his family did not get to enjoy the place long. Now Wexford is on the market again. The 166-acre estate is listed for sale for $5.95 million.
Meanwhile, the Hamptons estate where a young Jacqueline Bouvier resided and summered before her parents’ divorce is also on the market. The grand estate at 121 Further Lane known as Lasata is being sold for $54 million. The 11-acre property had been owned by Jackie’s grandfather, Major Bouvier.
Lasata – built in 1917 – is currently owned by fashion designer and former Coach CEO Reed Krakoff. The estate is being sold in two parcels: $39 million for the 11-bedroom main house plus 7.2 acres; $15 million for 4 acres and the tennis courts.
Back On the Market Again For Roberta Flack
The first two list prices Roberta Flack tried to get for her 2,000-square-foot residence in the famous Dakota apartment building in New York City did not produce a hit.
So now the legendary singer has dropped another octave, placing the 2-bedroom co-op that has views of Central Park for sale at $7.5 million. The “Killing Me Softly” chanteuse first sought $9.5 million in 2015, and then $8.9 million earlier this year. Maybe she’ll throw in the grand piano that’s parked in the large living room.
