From the library to the rooftop sunroom and private terrace with dazzling Hudson River views, loft lovers won’t want to change a thing in this perfect penthouse at 288 West Street. As 6sqft previously reported, actress Jennifer Connelly and British actor Paul Bettany bought the four-bedroom penthouse in celebrity-magnet Tribeca for just under $7,000,000 in 2008. Four years later the couple reportedly sold the home in an off-market sale for $8,495,000 when they decamped for the brownstones of Brooklyn. The 4,000-square-foot penthouse loft is back on the market, asking $12,000,000.

The three-bedroom home on a wooded lot at 1 Cross Way may look unassuming, but the property, listed for $1,599,000, has a celebrity secret. The home is the former guest house for the Whitney Houston estate in Mendham, New Jersey. The current owners bought the property from Houston, who was born in Newark, in 2010 and kept her recording studio just as it was.
