Katie Holmes loves Chelsea. The Post reports that the actress has taken up residence in a sparkling new penthouse at 201 West 17th Street, paying $25,000 a month for the luxurious digs. Back in 2012, Holmes and daughter Suri called a $12,500-a-month rental at the Chelsea Mercantile their refuge while the actress took steps towards divorcing then-husband Tom Cruise. Although Holmes’ new penthouse doesn’t come with a secret entrance to Whole Foods, the picture perfect pad definitely makes up for the lack of organics with its stunning views and ample outdoor space.
The penthouse is a 2,400-square-foot modern space with an open plan, floor-to-ceiling windows, and three exposures with views of the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, and World Trade Center. The home also comes with plenty more bells and whistles, including a built-in espresso machine, a wood-burning fireplace, heated towel racks, a private deck with an irrigated, landscaped terrace and outdoor shower, and “the latest ‘smart home’ technology,” which will allow both Holmes and Suri to control the lights, window shades, audio, and climate control from their iPhones.
The Post notes that Holmes poured $3.79 million into a six-bedroom in California last year, but she has always had a “love for New York City and the Big Apple’s ballet, theater, subway and art galleries.” Could a multi-million dollar NYC buy be in the actress’s near future?
