Celebrity Real Estate: Seth Meyers, John Legend, Stella McCartney

By Laura Vecsey


‘Late Night’ Switch

Seth Meyers, the former SNL star and host of “Late Night,” has traded his average-sized-for-Manhattan apartment for a much bigger duplex, complete with 32 windows. That should ensure Meyers and his lawyer wife, Alexi Ashe, have plenty of light as they cook dinner. There’s also a home office where Meyers can cook up jokes for his night-time monologues.

The couple paid $7 million for the 5-bed, 4.5-bathroom apartment that looks out over the Empire State Building and the Hudson River. The couple, who welcomed a baby girl into their lives earlier this year, previously had lived in a smaller apartment in the Village that they paid $3.2 million for in 2013.

Legend Sold!

After making their move to Los Angeles, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have bid adieu to their 1-bedroom New York City apartment for $4.5 million. They’d purchased the home in 2013 for $2.4 million. The lofty crib-like dwelling had been completely redecorated for the A-list couple and featured in all kinds of glossy magazines.

However, with 4-month-old daughter Luna now part of the happy couple’s life, Legend and Teigen decided to give up the downtown pad for some bigger digs. Their $14 million L.A. home was once owned by Rihanna.

Stella McCartney Probably Won’t Let It Be

Fashion designer Stella McCartney has made a play in a familiar Long Island beach town where her famous father (Sir Paul) has long vacationed with the family. Stella and her husband, Alasdhair Willis, paid $1.3 million for a small home in Amagansett that included two additional and adjacent parcels.

With about three-quarters of an acre with bayfront access, plans are probably being stitched together for something bigger and better for the getaway spot. After all, where would she put her four kids in the existing 1,300-square-foot bungalow?
