Celebrity Real Estate

I’ve been stalking celebrity real estate again – it’s my guilty pleasure, so I thought I’d share. Let’s kick it off with Matthew Broderick and SJP’s $25 million dollar Greenwich Village townhouse. This is the library:

spotted on Zillow, who found it via Sotheby’s.

Speaking of Carrie Bradshaw, the real Carrie Bradshaw, author of Sex and the City Candace Bushnell, is also selling her Greenwich Village home. Hers is a 2-bedroom apartment and it’s listed for $2.8 million. I remember this one from Elle Decor, in fact, isn’t it on the cover of the last Elle Decor book, So Chic? Yes, I believe it is. Photographs are so crucial to real estate listings. While most people can’t even remember to make their bed or put down the toilet seat, then celebs have spreads photographed by the likes of William Waldron.

I guess the cover of Elle Decor is a great way to market a house you’re about to dump. Reese Witherspoon is unloading her Ojai retreat. Elle Decor wasn’t the only place printing photos of the property; Witherspoon recently let RPat hide out from the paps and mend his broken heart here. The cozy revival ranch is on the market for a cool $10 million.

I really enjoyed this celeb house tour; it seemed like such a relaxing, family-friendly place that was actually attainable (the decor, not the house). It also respected the style and history of the home, preserving and honoring the best details.

It’s not currently for sale, but Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ wedding had me looking up Boone Plantation. Scenes from The Notebook were filmed there, and the place has a driveway that’s as Lowcountry as can be – lined in beautiful live oaks dripping in Spanish Moss:
