Newlyweds Adam Levine, Behati Prinsloo Look to Trade Up
By Catherine Sherman
Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and Victoria's Secret model Behati Prinsloo made their first red-carpet appearance as newlyweds this week after tying the knot in Mexico last month. The husband and wife are also making real estate moves together, selling Prinsloo's East Village duplex while closing in on a SoHo loft.
Property records show Prinsloo has sold her bachelorette pad for $1.65 million. The buyer, Renata "Noot" Seear, is also a fashion model. The duplex has one bedroom and 1.5 baths with an abundance of natural light. The New York Post notes the best feature is the 800-square-foot private-landscaped backyard - a rarity in Manhattan.
Meanwhile, the newlyweds are in contract to buy a 2,700-square-foot SoHo loft with 13-foot ceilings for $4.55 million. According to New York's Daily News, Levine and Prinsloo were "spotted traipsing around SoHo with floor plans in hand" months ago.
"[It's] a location to dream about [in] close proximity to all the major subways, best restaurants and great grocery stores," real estate agent Lucie Hold of Town Residential writes in the listing description.
The co-op is in a historical cast-iron building with a sleek glass-and-steel structure. The interior has a modern, minimalist look with white-painted brick and floor-to-ceiling columns. Levine and Prinsloo's unit has three bedrooms and two luxurious bathrooms.
Time will tell whether Levine plans to sell his Beverly Hills home or hold onto it. He purchased the historic Benedict House in October 2012 for $4.83 million.
