Natalie Portman’s Big Apple Condo For Sale


Beautiful and brilliant Israeli-American actress Natalie Portman, the fantasy “it” girl of fanboys and tech-heads everywhere, has hung up a for sale sign on her West Village flat-with a $6.55 million price tag. The 2,541 square foot loft is a convertible three-bedroom, three-bath in starchitect Richard Meier’s (best known for his design of the $1 billion Getty Center in Los Angeles) modern minimalist masterpiece, the transparent West Village tower at 165 Charles Street.  Spectacular Hudson River and stunning park views are warmed by glorious sunsets in this exquisite home featuring 2 bedrooms, a dining room (or possible third bedroom) and three full baths. The Meier-designed expansive interiors feature luxury finishes, and it’s the first apartment building that Meier has designed from top to bottom. That includes every interior, down to the bathrooms’ opaque-glass doors and the living rooms’ museum-style walls-positioned to “float” a quarter-inch above floors made of African wenge wood. The tower is an intimate, impeccably run 16-story full-service condo; featuring 31 exclusive residences. The exceptional amenities and services include 24 hour concierge, state-of-the-art fitness center, 50′ infinity-edge lap pool, and professional screening room. Private storage and wine cellar are also available. The Oscar-nominated, Golden Globe-winning, and Harvard-educated thespian/activist had purchased the unit in August 2005 through her Sea Cliff Real Property Trust. The sale price was either $5,700,000, according to the contract deed itself, or $5,804,025, according to a property records database. Andy Fink and Nancy Teague at the Corcoran Group ((212) 937-6711) have the listing.
