Heather Mills Sells NYC Condo
Heather Mills, the ex-wife of Paul McCartney and a former Dancing With the Stars contestant, is close to unloading her multimillion-dollar Manhattan condo. According to Streeteasy.com, the Manhattan, N.Y., apartment on Greenwich Village's Perry Street went under contract on Dec. 28, but since the papers aren't signed, we can only guess for how much.
Mills listed the two-bedroom home last fall for $5.3 million. She bought it in July of 2008 for $4.9 million. The condo is rumored to have gone for somewhere in the vicinity of $5 million, meaning she may only have cleared $100K. Which, considering she rented it out, may not have earned her much profit at all after realtors' fees and taxes. But if Mills really got a hefty divorce settlement from the Beatles frontman she may not care.
The 1,800-square-foot apartment is in one of three celebrity-filled Richard Meier-designed highrises overlooking the Hudson River in western Greenwich Village. Nicole Kidman and Natalie Portman are just two of the starlets reported to own condos in the complex.
The New York Post reported that Mills has been spending her time in Australia training to compete in the 2014 Paralympic Games for the British ski team.
"I hadn't been to the city in nearly a year due to my downhill ski-race training, so [I have] no need for a New York pad," she told the Post.
Mills still does some work for New York: She's involved with a charity which feeds Bronx residents vegan food. "I plan to visit [New York] soon, though, as I'm still feeding 3,000 families a week for the Hunts Point Alliance for Children."
