Realty Byte: Ryan Serhant Takes A Spin Around Jeff Gordon’s $30M NYC Pad

Published July 27, 2014 by gossipzoo

Living in the fast lane certainly has its perks for Jeff Gordon.

The acclaimed NASCAR driver has racked in $150 million over the course of his racing career, so it seems only fitting that his Big Apple digs should go for $30 million, right?

The famed athlete, who’s ranked 12th overall in the Sprint Cup, just finished his 700th race and isn’t planning on making anymore pit stops in NYC, so he listed his Manhattan property for the hefty sum that’s, of course, located in one of Manhattan’s toniest locales.

And get this… Gordon bought the 3,454 square-foot penthouse palace in 2007 for a mere $9.7M. An extra $20 million is some serious ROI. The 3-bed, 3.5-bath modern concrete jungle escape welcomes VIPs with a chic foyer graced by 6-foot Santos Mahogany floors and over 46 feet of oversized windows to enjoy the priceless views of Central Park. The entryway opens up the living and formal dining rooms with Brazilian cherry wood floors, rich wood doors, and (a rare fancy feature) a black granite sushi bar.

The kitchen is just as elegant with steel-like Italian ceramic tile flooring, black granite counters and state-of-the-art appliances. What’s even more astounding is the fact that the master suite alone is bigger than most NYC apartments at 740-square-feet! The master also has a separate dressing room, 2 walk-in closets, and an en-suite limestone bath with soaking tub. The condo includes a private office and fully-integrated Creston system that controls all lighting, window shades and audio/visual components.

And the lucky new owner will live among some star-studded company – Sting, Denzel Washington, and Bob Costas are all neighbors who you may run into at… take a deep breath… the 14,000 square-foot fitness center, 750 foot sky-lit pool, spa, sauna, steam room, screening room, private restaurant, wine room, library, business center, game room, outdoor terrace, or children’s playroom.

Go Inside Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler’s $10K A Month Midwest Mansion

Kristin and Jay Rent House In Chicago

Sun, sand and surf are nowhere to be found in Laguna Beach native Kristin Cavallari‘s brand spanking new suburban backyard.

Kristin and her new hubby Jay Cutler are spending big and splashing out $10,000 a month to live in the Windy City. The 6,718 square-foot home is in upscale Winnetka, Illlinois and perfect for the growing family.

The famous fam settled into the Midwestern manse earlier this year and it’s stunningly spacious with 5 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and spread out on almost 3/4-acres (that’s 8,200 square-feet!) with plenty of yard space for their 11-month-old son Camden.

The generous rental features a wood paneled library, fully finished basement, beautiful master suite, and enough fireplaces to keep warm during harsh Chitown winters.

Cavallari recently posed in the home for PEOPLE magazine calling the kitchen her “favorite room in the home.” And it’s easy to see why – the stunning gourmet eat-in kitchen has Carrara marble counters, top-of-the-line appliances and an adjoining room to relax and sit in front of a blazing fire.

Before moving into the family-friendly pad, Culter downsized in a 3-bedroom, 2,050 square-foot condo unit on Chicago’s Near North Side for a cool $6,500 a month.

Realty Byte: Ryan Serhant Flips Out Over Jeff Lewis’ $3M Listing

Published June 11, 2014 by gossipzoo

From one reality star real estate expert to another, Ryan Serhant is giving a big Bravo round of applause to Jeff Lewis‘s $3.195 million house flip.

After unloading the Los Feliz pad in 2006 for $2.795 million and with a case of seller’s remorse bought it back again in 2011, Lewis is has put it back on the buyer’s block.

And given that Lewis has his own show centered around his magical ability to make a drab house look fab, you know his own abode is going to be pretty spectacular. And the designer details don’t disappoint, either.

Originally designed and built in 1937 by architect Wallace Neff, the Property Envy host recently made an extensive renovation to the 3-bedroom pad, combining the original details with his own modern touch. From custom hand cut and laid marble flooring, solid wood paneled walls and ceilings, and eye-popping wallpaper, this home has got the Jeff Lewis signature stamp.

The master suite takes over the whole right side of the upper floor with a stunning bath featuring a stand-alone tub and steam shower for two.

And that’s not the only thing Lewis has up his stylish sleeve. Of course, there’s a huge master closet, two additional bedroom suites, gourmet eat-in kitchen, bar, pool, spa and state-of-the-art outdoor kitchen and fire pit.

And he’s got Orlando Bloom to thank for it.
