Ben Stiller Picks Up Brand New Condo in New York City’s West Village

BUYERS: Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor
LOCATION: New York City, NY
PRICE: $15,312,000
SIZE: 3,395 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Hollywood scion turned box office busting Tinseltown hyphenate Ben Stiller — he writes, he acts, he directs, and he produces for both the small and silver screens — shelled out $15.312 million, as was first spotted by the eagle-eyed property gossips at the Observer, for a house-sized, high-floor condo in a brand new, super-luxe complex in New York City’s West Village. The full-floor residence, which was last officially listed considerably below the recorded purchase price at $15 million, has four en suite bedrooms and a total of 4.5 bathrooms in 3,395-square-feet, according to digital marketing materials.

A extra-wide ribbon of floor-to-ceiling windows makes a magnanimous stretch of nearly 30 feet in the sprawling, 520-plus-square-foot combination living/dining room that overlooks the Hudson River while the conveniently adjacent but completely separate galley-style eat-in kitchen is fancily outfitted white, slab marble counter tops on custom walnut cabinets and opens at one end to an informal dining area doused with morning light through east-facing floor-to-ceiling windows. Each of the three guest/family bedrooms has an en suite bathroom and east-facing floor-to-ceiling windows while the spacious west-facing master suite privately occupies its own wing and incorporates a private sitting room, three closets — one of them a small walk-in, and a bathroom with double-sink vanity, radiant heated marble floors, glass-enclosed shower stall, and deep soaking tub.

The well-heeled residents of the newly constructed 15-story complex’s 91 units are provided a slew of creature comforts that include: a covered driveway and private parking garage; 24-hour doormen and concierge services; a cavernous yet cozy looking walnut and white oak paneled lobby with 24-foot ceilings and huge fireplace; on-site fitness club with sauna and steam rooms; a spa treatment room, yoga studio and juice bar; 75-foot indoor lap pool; and more than 40,000-square-feet of private green space. For all these luxuries, residents — who also include rocker Jon Bon Jovi and Victoria’s Secret model Irina Shayk — will cough up hefty common charges that for Mister and Missus Stiller, according to online marketing materials, ring up to $4,763 per month not counting $1,685 per month in property taxes.

Mister Stiller, whose films — just the ones he’s acted in — have generated an astonishing than $2.7-plus-billion in worldwide receipts, and his wife, actress Christine Taylor, are certainly no stranger to A-List living circumstances or the celebrity property gossip columns on both coasts. The couple previously owned a 4,000-square-foot duplex on the Upper West Side of Manhattan sold in April 2013 for $8,995,000 — just over a million bucks less than the $10 million paid for the place in 2008 — and in Los Angeles they owned a spectacularly turned out Spanish residence in the Outpost Estates area of the Hollywood Hills they sold for $7.325 million in 2011 to action movie staple Jason Statham who, in turn, sold it for $9.2 million in July 2015 to high earning sitcom star Johnny Galecki. As far as we can tell and in addition to their new digs in downtown New York City, the Stillers’ property portfolio currently includes: a modest if not exactly inexpensive 1,608-square-foot home tucked up into the foothills above the Studio City area of Los Angeles acquired in August 2006 for $1.1 million; a bluff’s edge residence on 14 ocean-view acres near Kilauea, HI, bought in 2002 for $8.5 million; and a 10,000-plus square foot Colonial mansion on 33.17 bucolic acres north of Manhattan in the affluent Westchester County community of Chappaqua, NY, snapped up in October 2010 for $10 million.
