Nicole Kidman Sells West Village Property NYC!


Nicole Kidman and the Perry Street apartment

Australian actress and Hollywood darling Nicole Kidman has sold her 12th-floor apartment at 176 Perry Street, the famed Richard Meier-designed building in the West Village, according to public records filed with the city today.

The 3,785-square-foot residence, which has a 30-foot-wide entrance gallery as well as sweeping views of New York Harbor, features three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. It sold for $16 million to an LLC named Perry West, with an address at the New York office of attorney Alfred Cavallaro. Cavallaro was not immediately available for comment. The deal for the property closed July 10, records show.

As The Real Deal previously reported, the “Cold Mountain” and “Moulin Rouge” star purchased unit in 2003 under the name of her sister, Antonia Hawley. Soon after, it was reported that Kidman was upset by construction of the nearby Meier tower at 165 Charles Street, which partially blocked her view of the Hudson River. She and husband Keith Urban, who are based in Nashville, bought another apartment at 200 Eleventh Avenue in early 2011. They paid $10 million for the Eleventh Avenue penthouse, which was listed for $12.5 million, according to news reports.

Kidman placed the Perry Street apartment on the rental market in 2010, asking $45,000 a month. It found a tenant in early 2011. It was not immediately clear if the listing broker, Richard Orenstein of Halstead Property, also represented her in the sale of the apartment. Orenstein declined to comment on the deal.

The building, which is one of two Meier-designed towers on the north and south corners of Perry and West streets, has been a major draw for celebrities. Jim Carrey was said to have considered buying in the building two years ago and fellow Aussie Hugh Jackman reportedly bought in the property in 2008.

Meanwhile, Kidman and Urban are reportedly expanding their Sydney, Australia home. The couple is said to have almost doubled the size of their apartment down under last week by buying the apartment next door. The spread has views of the Sydney Harbor Bridge and the Opera House.

Is Nicole Kidman This Mean?

Via The National Enquirer…

“Nicole Kidman’s shooting her new horror film “Stoker” in Nashville, but crew members swear the real horror is Nicole! Reports [a] backstage spy…”Nicole is a real witch, and they’ve nicknamed her ‘Ice Princess.’ No one’s even allowed to speak to her, except for primary cast members, the director or producers. The other day she requested a glass of water and was furious when the person brought her water with ice in it. ‘I don’t drink ice water,’ Nicole bellowed, demanding a room temperature refill. Everyone’s walking around on eggshells to make sure ‘Her Majesty’ is not displeased.” In another bizarre incident, a prop person moved an umbrella she was using in a scene from one side of a table to the other. When they began to rehearse the scene, Nicole threw a fit over the minor re positioning and read the poor guy the riot act!”

Who LOVES Botox?


We just heard, via Star Magazine…

“Which A-list actress is so concerned about wrinkles, she stores bottles of Botox in her freezer? She never has to worry about getting a last-minute treatment – whenever she needs an injection, she has a plastic surgeon come right to her home!”
