Color, light, texture — it’s all here in Cameron Diaz’s re-done Greenwich Village “jewel-box apartment.” And now the actress is selling the 1,400-square foot condo at 59 West 12th Street for $4.25 million. She bought it in 2008 for $2.95 million.
There’s no mistaking the celebrity pedigree of this 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom unit, thanks to the thorough listing description from Rebecca Edwardson of Warburg Realty.
A jewel box filled with color and texture creating a contemporary take on old Hollywood glamour, this two bedroom home was designed by the famed Kelly Wearstler, and published as the feature cover story in Elle Decor. Every room, surface, fixture, and furnishing is a work of art in itself, all custom, all artisan, and all painstakingly crafted. All rooms enjoy sun-filled south exposures, while looking onto the quiet, and highly coveted tree-lined block of West 12th Street in the Gold Coast section of Greenwich Village.
This 107-unit building is a 1931 classic from renowned architect Emery Roth that underwent a condo conversion in 1986. The condo also shows off Diaz’s habitually savvy real estate investments in classic NYC buildings.
Diaz owns another fabulous condo in the Walker Tower, built by “The Architect of the Century, Ralph Thomas Walker.” Diaz paid $9.5 million in 2013 for a 3-bedroom unit in this Chelsea stalwart.
