Oscar winner Anne Hathaway and her husband, Adam Shulman, just purchased a seaside home in Westport, Connecticut, the New York Observer reports. The five-bedroom Colonial-style home, built in 1920, exudes New England charm–right down to the red front door–and is steps from Compo Beach. Known as CompoBello, the home sits on .9 acres and includes a pool and a fully-stocked outdoor kitchen. The home’s interiors have recently been renovated. The couple paid $2.79 million for the 4,198-square-foot retreat.

We’ve followed ingenue Anne Hathaway through various life events as expressed in real estate transactions, including the Upper West Side penthouse she currently shares with husband Adam Shulman. Before that, there was the DUMBO Clocktower loft the actress reportedly used as an expensive closet. Now here’s a peek at the glossy midtown duplex in the Olympic Tower condominium at 641 Fifth Avenue that Ms. Hathaway shared with ex-con ex Raffaello Follieri for $37K/month in the mid-2000s (h/t WSJ); the apartment is currently on the rental market for $48,000 a month.
The listing points out that the glass-clad, dubiously decorated pad has the distinction of having been the rented home of the ill-starred couple during their “storybook romance,” which makes a lot of sense if the storybook you’re reading is a white collar crime novel about a 30-year-old con man arrested, convicted, incarcerated and deported for embezzlement and fraud, possibly with the aid of his actress girlfriend. But a different choice of words and more context should put this dressed-to impress duplex in a better light.

Anne Hathaway and her husband, actor and producer Adam Shulman, have bought a $2.55 million Upper West Side co-op penthouse, according to city records released today. The couple sold their $4.25 million Dumbo loft in the Clocktower building back in July of 2014, and more recent reports have the couple relocating to LA. However, Anne is starring in a new one-woman play come April, so the new purchase along 74th Street will likely serve as a pied-a-terre, especially considering it’s just 1,200 square feet, less than half the size of her old place.

After re-listing her DUMBO digs for the second time in early June, Anne Hathaway has found a buyer for her Clocktower loft, last priced at $4.25 million. Hathaway snagged the 2BR/3.5BA unit at 1 Main Street with then-fiancé Adam Shulman in February 2013 for $4.1 million, but reportedly never moved in, instead using the 2,592-square-foot apartment as an extremely oversized closet. The unit first hit the market in September 2013, but was removed shortly thereafter in December.
The buyer hasn’t yet been identified, but he or she will certainly not be disappointed with the giant master suite, library and media room, corner layout, and spectacular views of the Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, and Manhattan skyline.

It looks like Anne Hathaway is ready to try selling her DUMBO loft again. We’re not sure why the star would want to part with her gorgeous 2BR/3.5BA unit at 1 Main Street, the site of DUMBO’s Clocktower building. She just purchased the building in February of 2013 and after apparently not even moving in, she was ready to unload the loft by September. According to records, she took the loft off the market in December. But if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. 6 months after removing the listing from the market, Ms. Hathaway has put 1 Main Street #9B back on the market, this time with Town Residential listing agents Steven Gold and Chris Whelan.
