Wrapping Things Up: Katy Perry Sells Her + Russell Brand’s New York Penthouse
Katy Perry and Russell Brand are wrapping things up: Their Tribeca penthouse just sold for $2.75 million. Pics inside for the curious.
You know, the way Katy Perry and Russell Brand handled their split and subsequent divorce has really been a pleasant surprise (insofar as such a thing can be “pleasant”). Divorces are never easy; both normal people and celebrities alike have a tendency to behave badly during the proceedings, which is only to be expected when there’s a lot of hurt involved. Unfortunately for celebrities, though, they have the added pressure of having it all happen in the public eye.
Miraculously, though, Katy and Russell carried their split out quickly, maturely, and relatively mess-free—something which is, in all honesty, pretty commendable. Neither of them has wasted time moving on, either; they’re not hanging on to anything they don’t need to. And this includes real estate.
According to TooFab, Katy just sold the first home the two of them bought together, a 1,500-square-foot penthouse in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York. Originally purchased in September of 2010—about a month before she and Russell got married—the penthouse sold for $2.75 million (not too shabby).
It was a pretty sweet pad, too; with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, it features 11-foot beamed ceilings, a gorgeous cherry wood staircase, and a limestone kitchen. An outdoor terrace faces south, so of course it also boasts spectacular views of the city. Want to take a look for yourself? Here you go. Here’s the living room (including that fabulous cherry staircase):
And the terrace:
Man. Would that we had only had $2.75 million to spare when it hit the market—it’s spacious, homey, and gorgeous! Catch more pics over at TooFab.
But that said, we’re glad that Katy and Russell aren’t letting the demise of their marriage bring them down. No doubt they both have many more terrific things to do in this life, and they’ll only be able to accomplish them if they let things go. Good for them. Onward and upwards, eh?
