Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin Sold Goop-y New York City Penthouse

SELLERS: Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin
LOCATION: New York City, NY
PRICE: $10,727,000
SIZE: 3,892 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: After more than a year at steadily declining price tags that started at a brazenly optimistic $14.5 million, consciously uncoupled former couple Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin sold their Goop-worthy New York City penthouse for $10,727,000, well above its final asking price of $9,995,000. The erstwhile but by all accounts amicable couple purchased the 3,892-square-foot simplex unit at the River Lofts complex in 2007 for $5,146,000 and had the three bedroom and 3.5 bathroom spread Goopified by the skilled designers at Roman & Williams in a manner that, according to listing descriptions, “balances centuries-old techniques with a confident, breezy modernism.”

The house-sized condo opens to a small entry vestibule and skylight topped entrance gallery that stretches more than 33 feet end to end. The ample, approximately 650-square-foot combination living and dining room features white floorboards, white walls accented with hand-embroidered decorative panels, an 11-foot-high pressed tin ceiling and a fireplace with Chesney’s marble antique mantelpiece. French doors lead to a terrace that runs the full width of the penthouse and is also accessible through French doors from the gleaming, white-on-white eat-in kitchen that features a cushioned built-in dining banquette, a huge center island, a water filtration system and slab marble countertops on snow-white furniture grade cabinets. The fireplace in the living room backs up to a second antique marble fireplace in the adjacent library/den that does not have any actual windows but is none-the-less flooded with natural light via a huge skylight.

The bedrooms are clustered together at the western end of the condo and include a pair of en suite guest bedrooms connected by pocket doors and a master suite with four closets, a large skylight, two sets of French doors to a small balcony and a sleekly appointed bathroom with heated marble tile floor and a walk-in steam shower behind sand blasted glass wall. There’s also an abundance of closets and extra storage, an extra-large laundry room and, off the kitchen, a bedroom-sized walk-in pantry and mudroom.

The River Lofts complex, a two-building warehouse conversion, provides residents with round-the-clock doorman, a recently renovated fitness center, a bicycle storage room and direct elevator access to an on-side indoor parking garage that allows for discreet comings and goings.

Miz Paltrow’s bulging property portfolio still includes a shingled mansion in the Amagansett area of the Hamptons purchased in 2006 for $5.4 million, a large home in the natty Belsize Park area in London, an approximately 8,000-square-foot mansion in the celeb-favored Mandeville Canyon area of Los Angeles and a 2.4-acre fixer-upper estate in Montecito she picked up last year for $4.9 million from Nigerian oil magnate Kola Aluko.

As for Mister Martin, he continues to own a striking architectural in the Point Dume area of Malibu he picked up in early 2014 for $14 million and almost two years ago he sold a house in the Mandeville Canyon area — it’s just a hop and a skip from Paltrow’s place — that he quietly picked up in the fall of 2013 for $6.75 million and sold in an off-market deal almost exactly two years later for $12 million to a British hedge fund fat cat.

    Great apartment and flow. But I’m not feeling that sling of a couch on chains nor the leather pillows for dining room chairs.

    She is as annoying as her mother (who has to vend pharmaceuticals on tv at what, age 105, as like she needs more money). Nice place though.

      Agree about Gwyneth but I used to see her mother occasionally (usually in the company of an attractive DILF) when I worked across from Radio City — she always took a moment to exchange pleasantries.
