Take a look at the floor plan of this apartment.
It’s nice enough, sure, but does it look like a succesful 10-time Emmy nominee actor lives here? Well, he does. Mad Men’s Jon Hamm shares this 2 bed, 2 bath with actress ladyfriend Jennifer Westfeldt. And they have put it on the market.
It’s not their primary residence, that’s LA, but they likely spent quite a bit of cash on renovating it. I love the sunroom in the back. Especially the window panes. But I would have done more with the space. Probably turned it into a conservatory with lush plants and flowers. And maybe I would’ve panelled the walls with low bookshelves. And the rug is very blah….
Despite its humble size, the apartment is listed for $2,450,000… It’s hard to believe, but I actually think that’s a trick to get it sold fast. The terrace is a massive commodity in NYC as is the view of Central Park. The price therefore surprises me a bit. However, true to NYC fashion, there are monthly charges of $3,661. That does include taxes, a part-time doormen and porter, a live-in super, storage rooms and free laundry facilities.
The building was designed by renowned architect Rosario Candela. He was most famous for his many NYC apartment blocks. Apartments in his buildings are popular because both kitchens and bathrooms tend to have windows, as is the case in this particular property

For the first time since its construction, this architectural master piece is on the market. Kendrick Bangs Kellogg designed it for Beverly Doolittle and her husband in the late eighties. They had bought a rocky hillside plot in desolate Joshua Tree National Park, and wanted something that blended in with its naked surroundings. That Kellogg succeeded might be proven by the fact that this home is relatively unknown. Maybe people never spotted it. The roof looks likes a large ribcage carved out of pebbles. The colour is a slightly duller hue than the red rocks it is surrounded with, but it almost looks as if it was shaped by nature.

It’s spectacular nonetheless. LA Curbed.com describes it as a supervillain lair, and it very well could be indeed! It can be yours for $3000.000. Check the original listing here.

She sure has some styling to do! Celebrity fashion designer and stylist Rachel Zoe bought a new house, and boy does it need work!! A simple paint job is not going to cut it. This needs a lot of TLC, eye for detail and money… lots of money. And she had such a nice house!

The village has about 25 homes and a small shop only open on weekends. Most of the buildings are cottages with thatched roofs and the streets are lined with cobble stones. Off course there is a small local pub and a natural beach is just around the corner. It’s part of one of the largest private estates, Evans Estate, which is also for sale. £35.000.000 and it’s yours, and this includes the village. It’s not certain if the two can be bought separately.
