Chelsea Clinton buys new apartment for $10.5 million
Chelsea Clinton and husband Marc Mezvinsky are about to swap their $4 million pad for a new $10.5 million luxury four-bedroom apartment in the centre of Manhattan.
Chelsea Clinton, 33, and Marc Mezvinksy, 35, who married in 2010, are believed to have spotted the 5,000 sq ft property while out walking in the area.
The apartment is located in The Whitman building next to Madison Square Park, one of the most desirable corners of Manhattan’s Flatiron District.
They signed a contract for the property, which has stunning views of the park, last month, the New York Post reports.
Former US President Bill Clinton and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton are understood to have run their eyes over the couple’s home during a visit last week.
Chelsea Clinton’s famous parents even agreed to pose for photographs with tradesmen who were carrying out work there, the New York Post reports.
The building, which is being marketed by Douglas Elliman Real Estate, has one apartment on each floor and boasts various security features, including a key operated lift.
Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky’s floor has four bedrooms, six and a half bathrooms, a home office and a den. It also has a 252 sq ft planting terrace and a private storage unit is included with the property.The five-story building also boasts “top-of-the-line” amenities including a full time doorman, residents’ only gym and a refrigerated package room.
The couple’s apartment has a massive living area with timber floors and is flooded with natural light thanks to floor to ceiling windows.
The property’s kitchen would be any amateur cook’s dream, with a glass splash-back, a large marble worktop and state-of-the-art appliances.
The spacious bedrooms in the decadent Manhattan home are equally doused in natural light with large windows overlooking the street. And the bathrooms, covered in grey marble tiles, are roomy and modern.
Chelsea Clinton married Marc Mezvinsky in Rhinebeck, New York at a ceremony attended by many of America’s most powerful figures.
The couple’s current flat on Fifth Avenue is far from shabby either – boasting three bedrooms, two bathrooms as well as a gym and doorman.
The apartment, based in the historic Grand Madison building also features views over downtown Manhattan and Madison Square Park.
