It’s like musical chairs for Alec Baldwin and his apartments at the Devonshire House. He bought the Greenwich Village building’s penthouse for $11.7 million in October 2011; in June 2012, his wife Hilaria bought the unit next door in her name; and the following year, they scooped up an eighth-floor unit for $2.25 million. Two years ago, however, Baldwin sold this last apartment at a loss for $2.1 million, and this past May, he also unloaded the Eldorado apartment he shared in the ’90s with ex-wife Kim Bassinger, both transactions leading many to believe the Emmy-winning Trump portrayer would be departing NYC. But Mansion Global now reports that he’s bought another Devonshire unit for $1.3 million. It’s on the same floor as his other two units, so it’s likely that he’ll combine the three into one massive spread.
When he’s not channelling his inner Trump, Alec Baldwin spends a good deal of time buying and selling NYC real estate. He and wife Hilaria welcomed their third child in the fall, presumably making their current $12 million three-bedroom home in Greenwich Village’s Devonshire House a bit too small (Alec also owns the unit next door, and as 6sqft reported, he sold another one-bedroom in the building for $2.1 million in 2015). The couple was seen scoping out a couple Nomad-area places this fall, but they may now be ready to make the jump as Alec has unloaded yet another apartment, this time uptown at the Eldorado on Central Park West. The unit was an annex, or perhaps maids quarters, for a larger spread in the building, which Alec sold for $9.5 million in 2011. Six years later, he’s found a buyer for its counterpart, scoring $1.25 million from private equity firm founder and political economist David E. Spiro.
It’s been just 10 days since Alec and Hilaria Baldwin welcomed their third child together into the world, but they’re wasting no time continuing the hunt for a larger home to accommodate their growing brood. After touring a $16.5 million Chelsea penthouse at the beginning of the month, they’ve now set their sites on a similarly-sized, $16.6 million spread at Nomad’s 212 Fifth Avenue, reports the Post. The 1912 neo-Gothic buiding sits at the northwest corner of Madison Square Park, and the four-bedroom unit that caught the couple’s eyes boasts soaring ceilings, three exposures with views south to the Flatiron building and Freedom Tower, a marble-floored entry foyer, and a twelve-foot-long Calacatta gold marble kitchen island.
It’s safe to say at this point that Alec Baldwin’s infamous New York Magazine tirade about leaving the public eye of New York was not literal, as two and half years later the actor and his wife Hilaria haven’t budged. In fact, the couple, currently expecting their third child together, was seen checking out a $16.5 million Chelsea penthouse, according to the Post.
The 5,000-square-foot apartment is located at the top of one of the London Terrace Towers towers and is being sold as an approved combination of two existing units. It’s said to be currently owned by “Sopranos” creator David Chase. But Baldwin hasn’t eased up on privacy concerns. Baldwin hasn’t eased up on privacy concerns, however. Sources say he’s visited the apartment three times and “has been hanging out in the lobby asking residents about the building and what it’s like to be there.”
We’ve started to wonder what ever happened to Alec Baldwin’s grand exit from NYC (remember that NY Mag article/tirade?), but city records released today show he’s finally sold one of his Devonshire House apartments, so perhaps his move to LA has commenced. Baldwin owns a penthouse in the Greenwich Village building, a unit next door, and the recently unloaded eighth-floor one bedroom. He bought this last unit in 2013 for $2.25 million, listed it in March for $2.35 million, but only sold it for $2.1 million (maybe he really wants to get out of here).
