Ah, sisterly love. Back in 2003, one Antonia Hawley reportedly purchased unit #12s at 176 Perry St, New York, NY for her big sister, actress Nicole Kidman. It was within a two-tower development designed by architect Richard Meier. Seven years later, Kidman has decided to rent out the 3,785-sq ft condo for the mind-boggling price of $45,000/month. Sorry, sis.
As you can see from the photos, the condo is wrapped in glass, with “mesmerizing Hudson River views,” offering the perfect perch to watch antics on the Hudson and the potential of witnessing another heroic landing, a la Captain Sullenberger. Let’s hope not.
Why is Kidman giving up the condo? According to Curbed, she has purchased one of the 16 stainless steel and gunmetal terracotta-skinned condominiums at 200 Eleventh Ave in the Chelsea section of NY that promises un-obstructed, protected sunset views. Here is another penthouse recently for sale in 200 Eleventh so you can see an idea of the interior. What’s interesting about Kidman’s new digs is the sky garage that whisks owners’ cars up to their penthouse (photo below). It’s like having suburban luxury in the heart of New York City.
Back to Kidman’s rental: It has three bedrooms and 3.5 baths. A chef’s kitchen has a large center island, custom cabinetry and top-of-the-line Sub-Zero and Gaggenau appliances.
Kidman has reportedly spent time in this home with her husband, country singer Keith Urban. Their neighbors include designer Calvin Klein and fellow Australian countryman, actor Hugh Jackman.
