It’s hard to believe actress Mariska Hargitay has been starring as NYPD Lieutenant Olivia Benson on “Law & Order: SVU” for nearly two decades, but when it comes to her living situation, she likes to change things up a bit more. She and her husband, actor Peter Hermann, bought a stunning Upper West Side brownstone for $7 million in 2012, and they’ve now put it on the market for $10.75 million. Hermann told the Wall Street Journal that they’ve decided to sell because their “family needs have changed,” but they’d remain in the neighborhood. The six-story, 6,000+ square-foot home is located at 45 West 84th Street, between Central Park West and Columbus, and is “loaded with color and vibrancy,” according to Hermann, thanks to a collaboration with designer Jeffrey Bilhuber.

Celebrity chef and former host of the recently canceled daytime show “The Chew,” Michael Symon is selling his Greenwich Village penthouse for $2.55 million. The one-bedroom apartment is located in a pre-war co-op building at 40 East 10th Street, smack dab in the middle of Washington Square Park and Union Square. Last year, the Food Network star sold his West Village townhouse for just under $5.5 million. The available penthouse, which Symon picked up last fall for $2.4 million, comes with an expansive south facing private terrace, equipped with a retractable awning and an irrigation system, and a second smaller terrace located off the dining room.

Bradley Cooper purchased a $13.5 million Greenwich Village townhouse in May, the Wall Street Journal just reported. The actor, who currently stars in the new movie “A Star is Born,” registered the property under the “Cool Trust” to keep the sale hush-hush, city documents reveal. The home at 224 West 10th Street contains six bedrooms, a 1,100-square-foot garden oasis, and plenty of romantic, rustic details. And Bradley seems to be enjoying all the Village has to offer; a source tells us he dined last Friday at Fifty, a new American-South American restaurant on Commerce Street.
In the picture-perfect Brooklyn neighborhood of Carroll Gardens, a charming four-bedroom townhouse at 207 President Street has hit the market for $3.475 million. Built in 1890, the home boasts stunning architectural details like arched doorways, raw ceiling beams, exposed ductwork, rustic brick walls, and tin ceilings, as well as coveted outdoor space and a deck that overlooks the garden.
Here’s a top-floor, one-bedroom duplex condop at 61 Lexington Avenue in Kips Bay that’s nicely updated, bright, and pretty sizable for the price–and if you like the simplistic stlye, it’s available fully furnished. But the best part is the 300-square-foot private terrace off the master bedroom on the second floor. It boasts sweeping city views, surround sound, an outdoor TV, grill, storage shed, and built-in seating for 10 with cushion storage .
If we had to guess what Meryl Streep’s home looked like, our description would be pretty close to the serene interiors of her Tribeca penthouse, which she’s just listed for $24.6 million. According to Curbed, the three-time Academy Award-winner and her husband, Donald Gummer, bought the four-bedroom apartment in 2006 for $10 million, and they’ve now decided to sell it after buying a mid-century-modern home in Pasadena last December. Though Streep has designed the interiors impeccably, with a laid-back coastal vibe and contemporary art collection, what really sets this residence apart is the 10-foot-wide landscaped terrace that wraps around three sides of the penthouse.
In the converted brick West Village loft building formerly home to the Pickwick Paper Company, and now to 22 condos, this apartment at 35 Bethune Street offers an amenity-rich triplex with original details. The modern three-bedroom apartment is defined by a 24-foot, tiered glass atrium in its center and has more than 2,100 square feet of space. It’s currently asking $3.4 million.
This 2,223-square-foot three-bedroom triplex condominium looks for all the world like a modern townhouse–or, as the listing says, a Tribeca loft or a Hamptons house–in the heart of Chelsea. Topped by a rooftop terrace and lit by a 300-square-foot skylight, the three-bedroom home is definitely unique for a condo.
We know that displaying guitars along a funky apartment wall or leaning one or two casually against a doorway is a regularly-employed home-staging move, but in this Bushwick “penthouse” at 38 Wilson Avenue, it somehow works. And you might not even have to have a record deal yet, as the one-bedroom condo with a private roof deck and platinum-selling views also comes with a 421-A tax abatement in place ’til 2035, lowering monthly common charges to $641 a month.
This lavish townhouse could easily pass for a Parisian or Italian home, but it’s, in fact, hiding behind a traditional brownstone facade on the Upper East Side. Located at 234 East 61st Street, the four-story residence is part of the ultra-exclusive Treadwell Farm Historic District, which encompasses only two blocks. Though it was built along with its neighbors in 1873, the house underwent a unique interior renovation in 1910 that added its 21-foot vaulted ceilings and rear, arched addition that opens to the magical south-facing garden. Other stylistically unique architectural elements that have made their way in include the wrought iron railings, ornately carved marble fireplace, and etched glass windows. After last selling in 2006 for $7.9 million, it’s now asking $13.9 million.
