Interior design couple Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent listed their pristine Greenwich Village penthouse in November of last year for $10.5 million. Though they undertook a beautiful update (which was featured as the cover story in last September’s issue of Architectural Digest), this was a steep increase, so it’s not a total surprise that the selling price came in slightly lower at $9.8 million. According to the Observer, the buyer is “financier-slash-jewelry designer” Charles de Viel Castel.
Back in September Architectural Digest dedicated a whole cover plus photo spread to Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent “settling in” to their pristine apartment, a penthouse at the Emery Roth-designed 39 Fifth Avenue in the heart of the Village. While the pair spent the better part of the piece gushing about how they’d finally found their dream home (“We couldn’t stop thinking about the apartment, believing we were meant to live there…we were able to create the home of our dreams,” Brent said to AD at one point), it looks like the family, which includes their young daughter Poppy, couldn’t quite get as comfy as they’d hoped, because they’ve just listed their spacious pad for $10.5 million.
