It was veteran celebrity real estate snitch Vlad the Revealer at Celebrity Address Aerial from whom we first heard that Charlize Theron sold a penthouse apartment at the Broadway Hollywood Lofts building smack in the heart of Hollywood for $1.75 million. But, unfortunately for the drop-dead gorgeous 2004 Oscar winner (“Monster”), she lost a celebrity-sized bundle on the loft-style condo that she picked up in 2007 for a sliver more than $2.75 million. The two-floor aerie has just one bedroom but two bathrooms in 2,350 square feet, a stainless steel kitchen, and interconnected living spaces with lustrous ebony hardwoods and extra-high ceilings with exposed duct work. Floor-to-ceiling steel-framed windows in both the living and dining areas open to a pair of terraces, one with a head-on view of the iconic Capitol Records building, while a floating steel staircase climbs to the upper floor where, along with the master bedroom and bathroom, there’s a third terrace with outdoor fireplace and glittery city view.

The top floors of the Renaissance-style edifice, originally built in 1927 as a department store, were converted to luxury condominiums in the mid-aughts, and the, mid-rise tower is well known for its glitterati condo-owners, including Jason Statham, Jack Osbourne and Wilmer Valderrama.

Theron, who has at least half a dozen projects in development — notably, “The Last Face,” penned by her ex, Sean Penn — continues to own a secluded house in the Hollywood Hills, a couple of unassuming Spanish bungalows on different blocks of the same West Hollywood street, and a Mediterranean villa in the Outpost Estates neighborhood that she picked up in 1998 for $1.65 million.
