Celebrity Real Estate: Tina Fey, Carole King, Bobbi Kristina
By Laura Vecsey
Tina Fey Doubles Up in Manhattan
Comedy writer and actress Tina Fey’s eyes must have lit up when she found out that the exact apartment above the one she already owned was up for sale. The idea of doubling the home she shares with her husband and two daughters prompted Fey to pay more than $2 million above the list price for the mint-condition Upper West Side apartment.
For $9.5 million Fey can create a duplex – providing she can sweet talk the co-op board into letting her renovate. If you know anything about New York City buildings’ co-op boards, Fey could find herself with enough material for another big screen satire.
Carole King Kissing Malibu Goodbye
Songwriter and singer Carole King is looking to part with her beachfront property in Malibu. The musician, who was recently honored at the Kennedy Center, saw Aretha Franklin perform an epic version of her hit “Natural Woman.”
The hit-maker from Brooklyn – who went West in the 1970s after scoring dozens of hits songs for others – found her paradise in California and other western states, where she has owned some properties over the years. However, she’s now looking to part with the 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom home, listed for $2.295 million.
Bobbi Kristina’s Atlanta Townhouse for Sale
Known as “Krissy,” the daughter of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown was found unconscious a year ago before passing away in hospice last July. Now her former home is on the market.
The Atlanta residence, a 3-bed, 3.5-bath townhome just outside the city, spans 2,600 square feet and is listed for $469,000.
