Since splitting from her megastar husband, Tom Cruise, back in 2012, Katie Holmes has regained her independence and moved around a bit, setting up shop in Los Angeles and New York City.
Right now, the Ray Donovan starlet certainly has a gem in her rented three-bed, two-bath condo in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. Located in a luxury postwar building that pairs modern architecture with contemporary design, Holmes’ 2,400-square-foot penthouse pad, which has views of the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, and the World Trade Center, comes with every amenity you could think of (doorman, bicycle room, full “smart-house” technology, etc.).
Inside, the open floor plan is flooded with natural light. A corner living/dining room captures your attention thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows and a wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen, where surely Holmes and her daughter cozy up for hot chocolate in the winter, is the custom-designed centerpiece of the home, complete with Miele appliances, including a double wall oven, five-burner range, and a built-in espresso machine.
The master suite is Zen-inspired. A dressing area and en-suite bathroom features a dual-basin vanity, huge walk-in shower, heated towel rack, and a laundry closet. The second bedroom, where Princess Suri most likely rests her head, has its own windowed bathroom and a custom Murphy bed. The third bedroom, which doubles as a library with built-in bookcases, has plenty of storage space.
The landscaped terrace, which has its own irrigation system, boasts a variety of wicker furniture and an outdoor shower, which must come in handy in the middle of Manhattan. It’s not Dawson’s Creek, but it’ll do.
