    Trevor Noah’s Airy NYC Penthouse Just Hit the Market for $13 Million

    Just last month, Trevor Noah announced that he was stepping down as host of The Daily Show after seven years.  Now, as the comedian prepares for his departure on December 8, it looks like he’ll be parting ways with his New York City penthouse as well.  

    The 3,596-square-foot Hell’s Kitchen condo was extensively renovated during Noah’s ownership and is now listed for a cool $12.95 million with Nick Gavin of Compass. The three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom duplex is located within Manhattan’s century-old Stella Tower. Formerly known as the New York Telephone Building, it was originally designed by architect Ralph Walker in 1927 and in 2014, reimagined as a luxury residence. 

    The late-night talk show host’s former digs occupy the 17th and 18th floors and showcase cast metal archways, French doors, oak flooring and marble accents that make the abode feel ultra-modern. Even the walls are stylish, finished with suede leather and plaster. The home itself is bright and airy thanks to soaring 15-foot-tall ceilings and large floor-to-ceiling glass windows.

    Off the entry, you’ll find a floating staircase that leads to the upper floor which holds all the common spaces. There’s a dining room with seating for up to 12 guests, and in the chef’s kitchen, room for four more, plus marble slab countertops, top-of-the-line appliances, a wine fridge and pantry. A contemporary living room adjoins both spaces, complete with a gas-powered marble fireplace.  

    Elsewhere, a pair of double French doors in the sunroom opens to the sprawling 1,000-square-foot private terrace—a standout feature, no doubt. The alfresco space has been outfitted with a custom teak pergola, a heated plunge pool with built-in speakers and a black granite wet bar.

    The lower level holds all three bedrooms, one of which is currently set up as a swanky home theater with four leather recliners and wool-upholstered walls. The primary suite offers its own private foyer, a hand-rubbed cortina leather wall and dual dressing rooms. In the principal bathroom, you’ll find a steam shower, soaking tub, heated limestone floors and marble vanities.  

    While there’s no word on whether Noah will return to TV (or stay in New York, for that matter), he told his audience that in the meantime, he wants to “carry on exploring.”

    Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany’s Lavish NYC Penthouse Could Be Yours for $10.8 Million

    Looks like you have a second chance at owning a Hollywood power couple’s lavish New York digs.

    This picturesque New York City penthouse that celebrity couple Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany once called home is back on the market. The full-floor Tribeca abode comes with four bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and a lush 1,280-square-foot private roof deck. The loft was first listed in April of this year for $12 million. The asking price has now dropped to $10.8 million.  

    Connelly, who recently starred in Top Gun: Maverick, and Bettany, who just joined Tom Hanks on Miramax’s film adaptation of Here, snagged the chic Manhattan pad in 2012 and sold it four years later to Billy Hult. The President of Tradeweb Markets paid $6.99 million for the circa 1856 residence, as reported by the New York Post. The apartment still maintains much of its 19th-century charm, with a wood-burning stove, soaring ceilings, steel-framed arched factory windows and skylights throughout. 

    The library has wall-to-wall bookshelves.

    Elsewhere, the living spaces are outfitted with expansive windows that flood the loft with natural light. The epitome of bright and airy, the home features a 45-foot-wide living room, a double-height skylit chef’s kitchen and a dedicated sunroom that leads out to the terrace. There’s also a library outfitted with wall-to-wall, built-in bookshelves and a spacious dining area. Step into the primary suite and you’ll find a dressing room that’s joined by an equally impressive bathroom clad in travertine. 

    The private rooftop terrace comes with its own sauna, seating area and greenery.

    One of the biggest standouts, though, is the entertainer’s paradise on the roof. It comes complete with a sauna, planter boxes, trees and plenty of seating. “There’s something incredibly serene about the space,” listing agent Debbie Korb of Sotheby’s International Realty the Post in April. “Sunlight glittering off the river, large expanses of wide-open spaces and an enchanting rooftop terrace.”

    Barbara Corcoran’s Former NYC Penthouse Just Hit the Market, and It Comes With 360-Degree Views of the City

    For $2.3 million, you’ve got a deal.

    An Upper East Side penthouse that once belonged to Shark Tank investor and real estate mogul Barabara Corcoran has just hit the market for the first time in 25 years. Corcoran sold the pre-war duplex in 1997 to its current owners, former CNN anchor Laurin Sydney and her husband, Mark Burk, reported the New York Post. Dubbed The Tower House and likened to a “cottage in the sky,” it offers one bedroom and one bathroom. The real highlight is a lushly landscaped 1,200-square-foot wraparound terrace. An added bonus, windows on the second floor showcase 360-degree views of New York City.

    Combining modern conveniences with historic charm, the penthouse doesn’t skimp on the period details. Think an original wood-burning fireplace in the living room, parquet oak floors throughout and cast-iron windows. Elsewhere, custom decorative moldings and soaring 10-foot ceilings are additional nods to the home’s architectural roots. Leading up to the loft-style bedroom from the dining nook is a glazed custom steel spiral staircase by Cheron Tompkins, which makes this rarified residence feel all the more special.

    In a contemporary twist, the kitchen caters to present-day tastes with D’Oro stone countertops, glass-front cabinetry and a Gaggenau stovetop. On the second floor awaits an Amerec cedar sauna with a separate windowed bath and its own Jacuzzi soaking tub. The bedroom itself has custom closets, built-ins and a concealed TV cabinet.
    Along with epic bird’s eye views, the potential for indoor-outdoor living here is another advantage. The penthouse’s landing will lead you to your own private garden oasis that conjures up Paris and “is a perfect balance of elegance and sophistication,” notes the listing. The verdant, landscaped roof deck has been outfitted with a full irrigation system and offers four exposures.
    If you want to get your hands on this Upper East Side gem, the tower penthouse is being listed with Steve Gold and Scott Hernandez of The Corcoran Group, the shark’s namesake brokerage firm.
