…from a ladee we’ll call Leilani Likestogab that Oscar winning actor and People magazine’s 2007 sexiest man alive Matt Damon and his hit the jackpot wifey Luciana have been dragging their entourage all up and down the Upper West Side sniffing around for new digs.
According to Leilani, the couple is looking for a large apartment in the $20,000,000 range that will comfortably house their three children (two together, one from her previous marriage), a nanny or two and still have room for his visiting Boston buddies and, natch, the visiting grandparents.
Mister and Missus Damon have lived primarily in Miami Beach, FL where they own a 9 bedroom and 10 bathroom waterfront mansion on N. Bay Road which records show was purchased in April of 2005 for $10,300,000. Later that year they also scooped up the neighboring property for $4,200,000, knocked the house down and built themselves a bigger, larger and better swimming pool complex.
Mister Damon has also owned a New York City pied a terre since 1999 when he bought a large downtown apartment on Lafayette Street new Astor Place where he installed a basketball court in the basement. Yes children, he did. Right in the middle of Manhattan.
Anyhoo, we wish the Damons big luck looking for a new crib because even with a twenty million dollar budget, there just aren’t that many six or eight bedroom apartments on the Upper West Side.
