Actor Hugh Jackman has paid approx. $30.37 million for a penthouse in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood, according to public records and a person familiar with the transaction.

Records show the condo unit last traded in 2012 for US$19.4 million. The penthouse had been on and off the market since October 2021 and was initially priced at US$25 million.

The sellers are Daniel Fischel and Sylvia Neil. Mr. Fischel is president of Chicago-based global economic consulting company Compass Lexecon and a former dean of the University of Chicago Law School. Ms. Neil was an associate dean at the school. A call to Mr. Fischel’s office wasn’t immediately returned.

The roughly 435sqm, four-bedroom unit is located in a condominium designed by the architect Jean Nouvel, according to the listing with Noble Black of Douglas Elliman. The penthouse has roughly 14-foot-high floor-to-ceiling windows and about 343sqm of outdoor space, including a large roof terrace divided into dining and lounging areas. The apartment has views of the Hudson River as well as the downtown and Midtown skylines, according to the listing.

Amenities at the 57-unit building include a lap pool, fitness center and screening room.

A spokesperson for Mr. Jackman couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

The purchase comes as Mr. Jackman and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, recently listed their apartment at a Richard Meier-designed tower on nearby Perry Street for $38.9 million. That unit is listed by Deborah Grubman, David Adler and Paul Albano of the Corcoran Group.

Mr. Jackman has starred in films such as “The Wolverine,” “X-Men” and “The Greatest Showman.” He is currently starring in “The Music Man” on Broadway.

A waterfront home in the Hamptons village of Sagaponack, New York, is on the market for the very first time.

Asking $25.95 million, the gray shingle-style home was built in 2008 by the seller and has since been available as a summer rental, but it’s never been up for sale.

Designed by architect Faruk Yorgancioglu, the “waterfront home offers privacy and panoramic beauty that cannot be duplicated under today’s zoning laws,” said co-listing agent Marilyn Clark of Sotheby’s International Realty – Bridgehampton Brokerage.

The seller bought the property, which at the time had two small structures, at auction in 2005 for approximately $2 million, according to co-listing agent Deborah Pirro of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. Mansion Global could not contact the seller.

The home hit the market Thursday, and in addition to Clark and Pirro, it is co-listed by Raquel Lopez of Sotheby’s International Realty – Bridgehampton Brokerage and Diane Anderson of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.

Spanning 6,000 square feet, the home is filled with bright interiors, which were designed by New York-based interior designer Steven Gambrel. The open gourmet kitchen flows into a casual dining area and a living space with a fireplace, which is one of two double-sided fireplaces in the home, Pirro said.

“The placement and scale of fireplaces throughout the home is perfection,” she added.

A separate dining room has French doors that open onto a deck, listing photos show.

There are six en-suite bedrooms, including two primary bedrooms. The larger of the two is its own private retreat, outfitted with a fireplace, a sunroom and a large balcony, offering a space to watch the sun set over Sagaponack Pond, according to Sotheby’s.

The home sits on a little more than an acre of waterfront land, bordering Sagaponack Pond, where there’s a private dock, and looking out at the Atlantic Ocean in the distance.

“The location on the pond with the view of the ocean waves breaking is spectacular and unique,” Clark said. “You are close to beaches and the Sagaponack General Store. It is a quick paddle to the famous Sagg Main Beach.”

Other outside amenities include a gunite swimming pool and a hot tub, which are surrounded by a spacious deck, as well as a pool cabana, which has a full bathroom, changing rooms and a sauna. There’s also multiple balconies, decks and a screened porch overlooking the pool, striking a balance between indoor and outdoor living.
