Celebrity Real Estate Roundup: Diddy Lists, TV Iconís Home for Sale and More
By Laura Vecsey
P. DIDDY DOESN’T WANT THIS ROOM WITH A VIEW
In April, P. Diddy made real estate headlines when an intruder rode the Long Island Rail Road, hopped a cab and walked into an open basement door at the star’s East Hampton estate. The uninvited guest then made himself at home. He ate the rapper’s food, drank his booze and tried on his duds. Yeah, the Diddy-obsessed dude was arrested, but only after dissing Diddy’s crib as being “only three bedrooms.”
Now the man formerly known as Sean Combs/Puff Daddy/Puffy and other monikers is making his own headlines by listing his modern-day “Rat Pack” digs in New York City for $8.5 million.
Diddy bought the apartment in 2005 for $3.82 million then turned the 3-bedroom, city-views unit into a hip-hop mogul’s paradise. Now the 2,300-square-foot residence is a 1-bedroom with a huge media room and piano room, complete with a world-class sound system and black-out shades.
The address is also classic P. Diddy: 230 W. 56th St. in Midtown — the premier Park Imperial condo building.
OTHER NEW YORK MOVES
Tatum O’Neal is looking for a fresh start — again. The former child star and former wife of tennis player John McEnroe has listed her 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment at for sale. Located in The Forward Building, O’Neal has had the unit for sale on and off since 2008. This time she’s looking for $1.645 million for the 1,435-square-foot apartment, which comes with a handy direct-access elevator.
Meanwhile, the big-ticket prize in Big Apple celebrity real estate goes to Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick. They’ve listed their 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom Manhattan townhouse with a private garden for a whopping $24.995 million.
BEVERLY HILLS ASSET DUMP
“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star and casino owner Adrienne Maloof and her husband, plastic surgeon Paul Nassif, have upped the ante on reality TV shows by listing their family estate in the midst of a contentious divorce. The 8-bedroom, 11-bathroom home made for good staging during filming of the popular Bravo series. But now it’s up for grabs — for anyone with $26 million to spare.
TAKING UP A COLLECTION
Oracle CEO Larry Ellison collects California estates the way some of us collect MP3 players or laptops. The billionaire recently bought yet another beachfront , this time from former Yahoo! CEO Terry Semel at what Ellison might consider a bargain: $36,943,890. That’s only because Semel had originally listed the 10,000-square-foot “jewel on Carbon Beach” designed by Michael Graves for $50 million.
GENTLEMAN FARMER ED SULLIVAN’S GETAWAY FOR SALE
Television host once raised Guernsey and Holstein cows at his weekend home just two hours north of Manhattan. And after his death in 1974, the 3,600-square-foot former barn stayed in the family estate until 2005, when it was sold for $520,000. Now Sullivan’s former weekend stomping grounds are back on the market. The 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom Southbury, CT home is listed for $460,000 and still bears the slate floors and exposed beams that first attracted Sullivan to it 60 years ago.
