John Legend and Chrissy Teigen Sell Beverly Hills Home

Musician John Legend and his wife, model and social-media celebrity Chrissy Teigen, have sold their Beverly Hills home for about $22.7 million, according to their listing agent Marshall Peck of Douglas Elliman.

The property was listed for $32 million last August, but the price had more recently been cut to $23.9 million. Mr. Peck said a previous deal for the property, signed roughly a week after it was first listed, had fallen apart and slowed down the marketing momentum. “Everyone thought we had sold it,” he said.

Mr. Peck declined to identify the buyer beyond saying he is a private-equity executive. The buyer was represented by Joyce Rey of Coldwell Banker Realty.

The roughly 8,500-square-foot, seven-bedroom house has a design inspired by Ms. Teigen’s Southeast Asian heritage, with a hand-carved wood ceiling in the great living room imported from Thailand and teak wood detailing, The Wall Street Journal reported. The primary bedroom has a brass-and-concrete fireplace, a balcony, a “glam room” and designer closets that the listing agent described as “evocative of a Chanel showroom.”

The property also includes a heated saltwater pool and Jacuzzi, a wood-burning oven and a pergola.

The couple bought the house for $14.1 million in January 2016, records show. It had been formerly owned by singer Rihanna. They completely redesigned it and redid the kitchen with professional-level equipment for Ms. Teigen, who is a cookbook author.

Mr. Legend is known for his hits such as “Ordinary People” and “All of Me.” Ms. Teigen recently apologized for her previous behaviour on social media after being accused of cyber bullying. “There is simply no excuse for my past horrible tweets,” she wrote in a statement on the website Medium. “I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry.”

Mr. Legend and Ms. Teigen couldn’t immediately be reached for comment on the sale. The couple purchased another house, a 10,700-square-foot spread in the Benedict Canyon area of Beverly Hills, for $17.5 million last September, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The home in the village of Sagaponack has plenty of balconies to take in the surrounding water views

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.
