Jennifer Lawrence sold her unit in the Manhattan residential building The Laurel this summer. Ms. Lawrence initially listed the Lenox Hill property toward the end of last year, asking $14.3 million, a figure that registered as a million-dollar loss. But the final result was far more disappointing; when the dust had settled and the ink had tried, the not-quite ten million-dollar closing represented a loss of about a full third of the actor’s purchase price.
Interiors in the penthouse unit measure over 4,000 square feet. A profound sense of scale is key to the living style; the unit’s interior composition is refined, uncluttered, and possesses just a wee dram of historical rusticity, but the loft-like living room, and the glass walls that effectively blur the distinction between the living area and the city make for an arresting combination.
Details include a maple ceiling over the dining area, oak plank floors, and a fireplace accent wall that adds a little room-to-room definition in the common area. There are three bedrooms in all, with five baths completing the accommodations. The master suite is generously proportioned, and features a sliding glass door that opens onto the outdoor terrace.
The terrace adds an additional 3,000 square feet of living area to the unit. The space is divided into two levels, with a lawn, a grille area, a fireplace, a pergola and varied plantings appearing in turn.
Lawrence stars in the upcoming Red, White and Water, which she is also co-producing.
