  • Daphne Guinness and the interior of the Stanhope spread

    Beer heiress and fashion muse Daphne Guinness has finally found a buyer for her four-bedroom apartment at the former Stanhope hotel, just two months after she settled a lawsuit with her neighbors at the building, The Real Deal has learned.

    The deal for the 4,118-square-foot spread closed earlier this month for $11.3 million, listing broker Daniel Neiditch of River2River Realty said today. That represents a loss for Guinness, who bought the apartment for $11.73 million in 2008. While the identity of the buyer was not immediately clear, Neiditch said the person was not well-known. The deal has not yet hit public records. [more]

    Radio psychologist Dr. Joy Browne has two things in common with the fictional Frasier Crane. One, she answers callers’ on-air questions about life and love. And two, she has a fabulous apartment. Now Browne’s 2,600-square-foot riverfront duplex at the Regatta condominium in Battery Park City is on the market with L.G. Fairmont Group’s Derek Lee for $3.4 million, or $18,000 per month to rent. In addition, Howard Michaels, the chairman and CEO of international real estate investment banking firm the Carlton Group, last week put his 5,200-square-foot Lucida spread on the market with Corcoran’s Carrie Chiang for $11 million, along with his Stanhope apartment, which is priced at $11.5 million. Also, a 6,000-square-foot apartment is up for grabs at the San Remo, the iconic twin-towered co-op which Bono, Rita Hayworth and Steven Spielberg have called home. Unit #6E6F at 146 Central Park West hit the market over this past weekend for $24.75 million with Bellmarc’s Dan Fishman. Click here for more.

    Gumley Haft Kleier, the boutique New York City brokerage made nationally famous by HGTV’s “Selling New York” last year, is “very seriously considering opening up a division to represent new developments,” co-president Michele Kleier told the New York Times. The television starlet has been getting lots of business from Gary Barnett’s Extell Development lately, including trophy listings at 995 Fifth Avenue, 535 West End Avenue and the Lucida. Four or five listings in another new development are also coming her way soon, she said, declining to identify the property. “I would love to represent a whole building,” Kleier said. “Truthfully, we have never been set up for it.” [NYT][more]
