Even though she already has a glammy New York City pied-a-terre worked over by maximalist queen bee Kelly Wearstler—it was recently featured in Elle Decor, well-compensated movie star and producer Cameron Diaz is rumored and reported by the celebrity gossip juggernaut TMZ to have scooped up a $9 million apartment in the so-called Walker Tower, a freshly converted Art Deco edifice in lower Manhattan’s hot-to-trot Chelsea nabe.*
Listing information for the unit Miz Diaz is said to have bought, last listed for $9.35 million, shows there are three bedrooms (plus windowless home office/yoga lounge) and 3.5 bathrooms in 3,002 square feet of high tech luxury replete with a long list of fancy fittings that include radiant heated floors, herringbone pattern French oak flooring in the main living areas, a state-of-the-art home automation system, a built-in humidification system, heated towel racks in the bathrooms, and a swanky Smallbone kitchen with limestone counter tops.
On the Left Coast Miz Diaz still owns a modestly sized but multi-million dollar contemporary residence up behind the forever chic Chateau Marmont above the Sunset Strip and avid celebrity real estate watchers will recall the former fashion model shelled out almost $9.5 million in 2010 for veteran Showbizzer Candice Bergen’s long-time compound in a celebrity packed enclave in the Beverly Hills Post Office area.
*The upper of the two rather spectacular, 6,000-ish square foot simplex penthouses at Walker Tower is currently in contract with an unknown buyer for—so the scuttlebutt goes—above fifty million but below its heart-stopping $55 million price tag.
