Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas have always had a thing for real estate — fancy homes in Bermuda, Majorca and upstate New York. The couple’s home base has always been New York City, but it looks like they are ready to say goodbye to the four-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath home (with full staff quarters) that they’ve called home for $21.5 million.
Let’s get real about the Kennilworth building — it’s historic having been constructed in 1908. The Oscar-winning actors bought up two units to take over the entire ninth floor — that’s called high-style living in the Big Apple. Since it is a co-op building, that means residents’ fees are hitting a whopping $21,000 per month, according to Dirt. That does get you a rooftop deck, shared by all of the owners in the dwelling and two storage rooms in the basement — but honestly, that is a hefty sum for maintenance and landscaping.
The duo raised their two kids here, son Dylan, 20, and daughter Carys, 18, but with their youngest now about to fly the coop to go to college, it was probably time to downsize in Manhattan. No matter where they land next, we are sure it’s going to be spectacular because judging from the interior of this place (the views alone are worth at least a million dollars), they like to keep it fancy.
Don’t miss this sneak peek into Zeta-Jones and Douglas’ beautiful residence, and be sure to check out more photos at Dirt.
Upper West Side Dream
The Upper West Side is one of the most desirable neighborhoods to live in Manhattan. Zeta-Jones and Douglas have easy access to amazing restaurants, Central Park, and yes, even the subway if they want to venture out on public transportation.
We don’t know where to look first because each angle of this entrance is stunning. Those dark mahogany floors, the artwork tucked into the corner and the two sculptures greeting visitors gives this a complete museum feel.
There are kitchens for casual cooks and then there are professional kitchens for a chef — the couple definitely has designer tastes when it comes to appliances.
Eat-In Kitchen with Plenty of Storage
This bright and airy eat-in section of the kitchen not only has room for six (very rare in most NYC apartments), but it also has plenty of storage to showcase their fine china.
Formal Family Room
This family room might be a bit too stuffy for our tastes, but that view is to die for. Zeta-Jones has featured this area of her home on her Instagram page, where she took in the beautiful “morning stillness” of the city.
Central Park View
If you can afford a Central Park view, you invest in a Central Park view. The home has “100-feet of direct frontage” of the greenery without anyone blocking that magnificent sight, according to Dirt.
Not Your Average Dining Room
There are so many places to sit and eat in actors’ home, we hope that had lots of A-listers over to dine — and again, enjoy that Central Park view.
Pristine White Bedroom
We don’t know how this room stays clean, but Carys’ bedroom is pristine. And guess who designed the room? Mom! “Just had so much fun redecorating my daughter’s bedroom in the city,” she told her Instagram followers a few years ago.
Master Bedroom Suite
With a sitting room and two walls of windows, this master bedroom suite is spectacular. It’s the perfect room for the talented duo to store all of their awards: Oscars, Tonys, Emmys and Golden Globes.
We knew this place would have a large bathroom with his and her sinks, white marble and gorgeous gold accents. It’s completely fit for two Hollywood superstars.
