    Jenny’s got a new spot on the block!

    According to the New York Daily News, Jennifer Lopez just dropped $22 million on a luxury penthouse in the same Manhattan building as Chelsea Clinton and NASCAR star Jeff Gordon.

    Designed by Nate Berkus’ interior designer hubby, Jeremiah Brent, J. Lo’s new luxury penthouse overlooks Madison Square Park in the Whitman building.  Originally built in 1924, the Whitman is a pre-war, ultra high-end condominium with just four residences total – all with direct park views, high ceilings, and a full-service doorman.

    J. Lo’s new penthouse is the building’s crown jewel. The truly exceptional duplex penthouse has 6,250 square feet of interior space and over 3,000 square feet of private outdoor space on two levels. The home is outfitted with the ultimate in luxury finishes, including Arclinea custom kitchen cabinets, Miele and Sub-Zero appliances, wide plank rift oak floors, Italian marble slab bathrooms, and a Crestron smart home system.

    J. Lo last went big in New York when she spent $10 million for a gorgeous house in the Hamptons. On the West Coast, she still lives in the Hidden Hills mega-mansion she once shared with ex-husband, Marc Anthony.

      5 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, 8,900 square feet, pool, waterfront

      Price

      $13,950,000

      Fresh off the Kimye wedding, the Kardashians are ‘taking’ the Hamptons for the latest installment of their reality TV series – and they’re doing it in style.

      This summer, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney (and their oodles of assistants, glam squads, nannies, etc) will descend upon the Hamptons to shoot their E! series, “Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons,” where they’ll chronicle the launch of their popular Dash retail store in the chic New York vacation hotspot, all while living in a rented mansion, which is actually for-sale for $13,950,000.

      Their summer digs are sure to please even the pickiest Kardashian (we’re looking at you, Kim). The waterfront home sits on 3 acres, with a heated pool and a private dock. The 8,900 square foot estate is surrounded by water on 3 sides, and features 5 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms.

      There’s an oversized den, an open living room (perfect for lounging), a professional grade kitchen, and waterfront views from every window and glass door.

      Along with breathtaking views and top-of-the-line amenities, this home is made even more appealing by its close proximity to beaches and Southampton Village, where the Dash store will be open for business all summer.

      There were rumbles a few weeks back that the Kardashians were all “persona non grata” in the exclusive Hamptons community, and that many for-rent homes were closing their doors to the sisters. A source told the New York Post that “many Hamptons brokers refused to work with Kardashian producers, for fear of further upsetting locals who are worried about traffic and crowds, while other owners refused to rent their homes in more esteemed locations.”

      Sorry Hampton-ites. Looks like the Kardashians are coming at you – and doing it in style.

      The for-sale listing on their rental is being held by Danielle Lise Desrochers of Elliman.

          She may be “Maid in Manhattan,” but Jennifer Lopez loves the Hamptons enough to spend $10 million on a chic 3-acre spread in Water Mill, NY.

          First reported by the New York Post, Lopez, along with her young boyfriend Caspar Smart and her twins Max and Emme, were seen multiple times touring the property before Lopez officially dropped $10 million for the 8-bedroom, 7.5 bathroom, 8,500 square foot custom home.

            12 bedrooms, 12-bath, 31,000 square feet

            Price

            $43.5 million / $400K a month

            As one of the music industry’s most powerful dynamic duos, valued at a net worth of around $750 million between the two, it’s no surprise new parents Jay-Z and Beyonce, along with their 7-month old baby girl Blue Ivy, can afford to live a lavish lifestyle. But just in case you ever doubted these two for even just one second, hip hop’s Bonnie and Clyde are here to remind us yet again that they’re still very much “big pimpin” and “spendin that cheese.”

            According to the NY Post, the couple have reportedly zeroed in on a famous Hamptons vacation home to rent for the month of August, shelling out $400K to lounge around mega-builder Joe Farrell’s million dollar “Sandcastle” playhouse. Made famous for its out-of-this-world amenities and lonely-love-seeking-billionaire clientele, the mansion is actually listed on the market for $43.5 million, however is available for rent in the interim –  only to those of the likes of Jay-Z and B, of course.

            Sitting on 11.5 acres in coveted Bridgehampton South, the 31,000 square-foot, three level estate oozes luxury and entertainment and drops even the most privileged of jaws. Its standout amenities include a 10-seat theater with interactive seats, a baseball field, 2-lane bowling alley, skateboard half pipe, squash and racket ball court, karaoke stage and bar, 60-foot heated pool with underwater stereo system, sunken tennis court, virtual golf course, and a “children’s performing area.” The media room includes 5 plasma TV’s and the in-house spa comes complete with Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and massage area. For guests, a two-bedroom apartment houses four comfortably. Among the estate’s over-the-top features, you can find 12 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms for those interested in actually sleeping during their stay.

            Jay-Z and Beyonce might be wondering where the private landing strip is located, given the new Jet Beyonce purchased for her hubby this past Father’s Day. Although that feature has yet to be built, we believe there are plenty of perks to make up for it with this dream-come-true Empire State vacation home!
