The boyhood Queens home of President Donald Trump was slated for an auction this month after failing once again to secure a buyer. But the auction, scheduled for November 14, never happened as no qualified bids came forward, the New York Post reported. Most recently listed for $2.9 million, the five-bedroom Tudor-style home at 85-15 Wareham Place has been on the market three times since 2016, with a short stint on the rental market.

Grammy Award winner Norah Jones has listed her four-story townhouse in Cobble Hill for $8 million, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday. The Brooklyn home sits 25 feet wide at 166 Amity Street and contains five bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a backyard with a disappearing heated pool and hot tub. The singer-songwriter first picked up the 19th-century pad in 2009 for $4.9 million. Unfortunately, the vintage Krakauer piano found by the back door is not included in the sale.

88-year-old veteran television talk show host Regis Philbin (“Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee/Kelly,” “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” “America’s Got Talent”) and his wife, Joy, have put their Greenwich, Connecticut home on the market for $4.595 million (h/t WSJ). The ask is a significant drop from the home’s purchase price a decade ago when the couple moved in. The 13,661-square-foot residence was built in the style of an English Manor, complete with a pool, tennis court, and a garage that holds five cars. The Philbins are selling in order to spend more time with family in California; Ms. Philbin said in a statement that “this house will always be our favorite…There was always room for everyone.”

Demi Moore may have sold her remarkable apartment in the San Remo at 145 Central Park West for $45 million in 2007–two years after first attempting to sell at a whopping $75M–but the rare penthouse in one of the venerable building’s two beaux-arts towers is still a star. And the south tower triplex is for sale again, this time asking $50 million, the Wall Street Journal reports. As if the 8,000-square-foot sky mansion didn’t have enough of its own cachet, neighbor Bono–who bought his apartment from Steve Jobs–can always add more. The seller is known only via the LLC “M2 Trust.”

Pritzker Prize-winning architect I.M. Pei passed away in May, leaving behind an unrivaled legacy that includes modern masterpieces such as the Louvre’s glass pyramid in Paris and the National Gallery of Art’s East Building in Washington D.C., as well as a slew of iconic projects here in NYC. His firm, Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, was based in New York City, where Pei also lived. For the past 45 years, he and his wife Eileen resided in a four-story townhouse at 11 Sutton Place, which has just been listed by Christie’s International Real Estate for $8 million. Pei himself outfitted the home with appropriately stunning architectural features such as a spiral staircase, a geometric skylight, and a rear wall of windows to take advantage of the East River views.

The estate of renowned Picasso biographer and art historian Sir John Richardson—who passed away in March—recently listed his Flatiron co-op for $7.2 million. The seventh-floor loft at 73 Fifth Avenue spans across 5,400 square feet but despite some original details—dark oak floors, wood beams, exposed pipes, and oversized windows—it looks more like “a vast English country house” than a traditional loft, as New York Magazine noted. Currently configured as a two-bedroom with plenty of library space, the home is filled with a “mash-up of exotic and classical furniture,” alongside countless artworks from friends like Lucian Freud and Andy Warhol, and other curiosities.

Musician Albert Hammond Jr. has put his Nolita loft up for rent, seeking a cool $6,750 a month. The Strokes guitarist bought the pad in 2012 for $1.25 million from Victoria’s Secret model Maryna Linchuk, according to the New York Post. The 1,033-square-foot studio loft at 354 Broome Street—also known as the Ice House Condominium—features exposed brick walls, original columns, freshly refinished oak floors, and beamed ceilings. It’s not the first time Hammond is taking on the role of landlord. The unit has been rented out a couple of times during his ownership, fetching as much as $7,500 a month in 2015.
