Nicole Kidman Gets Amazing Deal on New NYC Pad

Nicole Kidman gets a great deal on New York homeEveryone wants a deal and to get money off the listing price and Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban sure did that with their recent New York City penthouse purchase. They saved $2.5 million on their Chelsea apartment, paying $10 million for a $12.5 million listed property.

And that's not the only bragging right this married duo got with their new home. There is a suite component with these digs, giving it something no other New York building offers.
The three-bedroom, three-and-a half-bathroom penthouse apartment that the Aussie duo purchased has private outdoor areas, amazing views and over 3,200 square feet of space.

Some fancy neighbors also come with the building as Domenico Dolce of fashion giant Dolce and Gabbana reportedly bought not uno but due penthouse apartments for $29 million last year.

It seems that Dolce's purchase of two penthouse units for $29 million means that he did not get the deal that Kidman and Urban did. (They paid 20 percent off listing price).

Although Dolce's two units (at a combined 7,337 square feet) have roughly 800 square feet more, after doubling Kidman and Urban's unit, that still means Dolce spent $9 million for the additional 800 square feet. Ouch.

Located at 11th Avenue and 24th Street, the Anabelle Selldorf-designed building takes "keeping up with the Joneses" to the sky, as it adds a unique feature to New York City real estate. An apartment at 200 Eleventh St. means that 14 of the 16 units will live a more Jetson-like life, with an "En-Suite Car Garage." Residents pull into a car elevator, go up to their parking spot on their apartment floor and are home. Sadly, no robot greets you at the door.
