Are Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looking for a new place to shack up together in New York City? The answer is yes, according to the New York Daily News. It has been reported that the genetically-blessed British couple checked out a three-bedroom, 3.5-bath duplex at 136 Baxter Street in SoHo last week. The apartment, which spans two entire floors, is currently for sale for $4,495,000.
The duplex penthouse offers ultimate comfort and privacy with 2 entrances, a wood-burning fireplace, 10-foot timber beamed ceilings, red oak floors, original cast iron columns, exposed brick walls, and full length steel frame windows and over 600 square-feet of private outdoor space off the living room. The kitchen features Valcucine, Miele and Sub-Zero appliances with custom-designed limestone and hand-cut glass tile baths. The unit also has private storage.
The New York Daily News’ inside source says the actor and the model stayed at the condo for “over 30 minutes and Statham even went up and down the stairs repeatedly to check out the view.” Statham was reportedly enamored with the condo’s privacy and bright, sun-soaked rooms. Whether he was enamored enough to make an offer is something we’ll just have to wait and see.
