John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have listed their units in the Brewster Carriage House, the 1856-built downtown Manhattan boutique building that charmed them out of $9 million in 2018 and a further $7.7 million in 2020.
Looking for an easy and quick resolution, the pair has priced the two penthouse units at $18 million. The properties collectively represent 6,000 sq. ft. of interior living area, with 3,300 sq. ft. of terrace space as the icing on the cake.
The ownership opportunity is a rare one: the combination includes the entire sixth floor and half of the fifth. The upper-level penthouse features a large corner great room with a 12-foot ceiling and a gas fireplace, and a revised kitchen with custom Amuneal cabinetry and a quartz-capped island. A second living area on the lower level is joined by a pair of bedrooms. The sale includes plans to create a single residence, which would join the living areas to create a 1,200 sq. ft. space.
Details throughout the two units are remarkable, with styles ranging from modern/industrial to turn of the century. Exposed brick, poured concrete, reclaimed timber, ornate metalwork, natural-toned plank hardwood, and original iron can all be spotted on a pictorial tour. The roof terrace is an astonishing space, a stunning evocation of liberation in a comfortably far-flung corner of the city.
The two units represent two of three the couple has purchased in the building. They bought the first in 2012, and sold it in 2016.
Legend’s Las Vegas residency will be taking up most of his time this year, with the occasional international concert popping up in the summer.
Teigen’s second cookbook, Cravings: All Together, was published last fall.
