David Fincher Snags Big Apple Pied-a-terre (EXCLUSIVE)

It was good ol’ real estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak who first told us — and inestimable celebrity real estate tattletale Lucy Spillerguts who seconded the motion — that two-time Oscar-nominated filmmaker and Emmy-winning “House of Cards” director David Fincher quietly (and via trust) dropped not quite six million bucks for a posh New York City pied-a-terre.

The loft-style condominium, in a 14-unit, newly converted turn-of-the-century factory building in the heart of New York’s historic and terrifically expensive Tribeca neighborhood, spans just over 2,200 square feet, per listing details, with three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. A key-lock elevator opens directly onto an elegantly proportioned entrance gallery that leads to an almost 32-foot-long combination living/dining room with 10-foot ceilings, two exposures and half-a-dozen oversized sash windows. The adjacent, galley-sized kitchen is sleekly fitted with bleached walnut cabinetry, honed marble-slab countertops, and a built-in dining banquette.

The vaunted producer and director joins the boutique building’s small number of well-heeled owners, who include much-lauded filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, who shelled out almost $8.35 million for the building’s 3,100-square-foot duplex maisonette. Soderbergh, interestingly enough, previously owned a swank spread in another star-studded Tribeca building in which Orlando Bloom briefly floated his own 2,500-square-foot loft for sale earlier this year at a smidge less than $5.5 million, and where Taylor Swift has a suburban mansion-sized penthouse she picked up last year for $19.5 million from “Lord of the Rings” tycoon Peter Jackson. But we digress …

Back on the West Coast, Fincher and his longtime lady-mate, two-time Oscar nominated producer Cean Chaffin — both were nominated for “The Social Network” and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” — have owned a sizable estate inside the gates of the historically and famously celebrified Laughlin Park enclave in L.A.’s Los Feliz area since 1996, purchased for $3 million.
