CelebrityEnvy: Chrissy Teigen & John Legend

The couple sold their NYC loft in 2016, but returned to the same building-with a penthouse upgrade-to fit their growing family.

As if Chrissy Teigen and John Legend didn't already exceed all of our life goals, their newest real estate acquisition really removes all doubt. The multi-talented model//TV show host/cookbook author/social media guru and award-winning musician have reached the pinnacle of chic with the purchase of their three-bedroom, three-bathroom penthouse in the Nolita neighborhood of New York City.

The pair previously owned a loft in the same building, but elected to sell it back in 2016 in search of a larger living space to retreat to when not in L.A. Having recently grown to a family of four with the birth of their two children, Luna and Miles, Teigen and Legend put down $9 million to return to the top floor of the historic Brewster Carriage House building, closing the deal in May 2018.

The penthouse boasts 2,610 square feet of living space plus a 1,800-square-foot private roof terrace with stellar Manhattan views. Reached via a staircase with copper railing and glass facade, the outdoor space features irrigated gardens, a chef's kitchen, a sound system and motorized projection screen, making it the perfect spot for Teigen to whip up an Instagram-worthy feast while Legend graces ears with his greatest hits.

After recently undergoing a two-year gut renovation, the penthouse breathes modernity into the landmark building that was originally built in 1856. Beautiful light oak floors span the living and dining areas and are complemented by sky-high 13-foot ceilings and a dark wood accent wall. The open floor plan oozes luxury thanks to mostly white furniture, a back-lit wine closet and two-sided gas fireplace.

Huge windows that open to Juliet balconies line the dining area that connects to a custom chef's kitchen that we can only imagine brought a tear to Teigen’s eye. Per the listing shared by Douglas Elliman, the industrial-style space is centered around a natural white quartz island with features that include Miele appliances and a large stainless steel sink (with an Italian custom-plated kitchen faucet, to boot). Bespoke cabinets made of dark oak are iron-wrapped with oxidized brass pulls, creating drama in contrast to the lightness of the island, countertops and backsplash.

The bright and spacious bedrooms are divided into two wings at opposite ends of the loft, with exposed brick walls and walk-in and walk-through closets that make us green with envy. Attached master baths have heated tile floors, rainwater showers, soaking tubs and dual sinks with dark walnut vanities.

Even with such a lavish pad and monster successes, Teigen and Legend remain one of the most relatable couples in Hollywood and we can’t help but want to be their friends (and snag an invite over for dinner). Rest assured, we’ll be auto-refreshing Teigen’s social media posts in hopes of seeing more of the place in between adorable photos of Luna and Miles.
