Celebrity Real Estate: Jake Gyllenhaal, Kelly Ripa, Michelle Williams

By Laura Vecsey

Broadway Bound, Gyllenhaal Lists in L.A.

With a new gig in New York, it looks like Jake Gyllenhaal won't need his mid-century modern in Los Angeles. The 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom Hollywood Hills home has hit the market for $3.5 million.

The home's great room offers views of the city — "sensational panoramic views," according to the listing — and the outdoor space includes a patio, private yard and pool. It's nestled on almost two acres.

While Gyllenhaal has several movie winners under his belt, his next project is a Broadway production, Constellations, in which he'll co-star with Ruth Wilson.

Kelly Ripa Is No Longer Pent Up

Talk show host Kelly Ripa and her husband, Mark Consuelos, have parted with their swanky New York penthouse for $20 million.

The 5-bedroom SoHo apartment had been listed for as much as $24.5 million, but the couple settled on a pretty decent deal for the 6,792-square-foot residence that was all about high ceilings, a huge gourmet kitchen, two dining rooms and a big master suite.

In addition to a media room and 3,000-square-foot deck, the home included an indoor gym for the eternally fit and perky Ripa.

Michelle Williams' Brooklyn Home for Sale

She was an early adopter of the Boerum Hill neighborhood in Brooklyn back in 2005. And it was there on Smith Street that actress Michelle Williams stayed after the tragic death of her then-boyfriend Heath Ledger in 2008.

Now the "My Week with Marilyn" star is ready to sell the corner home, which is listed for $7.5 million. The 4-story home is 22 feet wide and has a 3-car garage and a rooftop garden with a waterfall. It contains 6 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and a 1,000-square-foot parlor.

Mayoral Rental

Who needs Brooklyn when you've got the Upper East Side and a swell home called Gracie Mansion?

Not the new mayor of New York City.

Mayor Bill de Blasio has listed his Brooklyn home for rent, now that he and his family have moved into the famed mayoral residence along the East River. The mayor's 4-bedroom, 1-bath home was the kind of working man's abode that fit de Blasio's populist image during last year's mayoral campaign. But now it's for rent for $4,975 a month, according to StreetEasy.
