End of Week Pick Up Sticks: Cameron Diaz

 Even though she already has a glammy New York City pied-a-terre worked over by maximalist queen bee Kelly Wearstler—it was recently featured in Elle Decor, well-compensated movie star and producer Cameron Diaz is rumored and reported by the celebrity gossip juggernaut TMZ to have scooped up a $9 million apartment in the so-called Walker Tower, a freshly converted Art Deco edifice in lower Manhattan's hot-to-trot Chelsea nabe.*

Listing information for the unit Miz Diaz is said to have bought, last listed for $9.35 million, shows there are three bedrooms (plus windowless home office/yoga lounge) and 3.5 bathrooms in 3,002 square feet of high tech luxury replete with a long list of fancy fittings that include radiant heated floors, herringbone pattern French oak flooring in the main living areas, a state-of-the-art home automation system, a built-in humidification system, heated towel racks in the bathrooms, and a swanky Smallbone kitchen with limestone counter tops.

On the Left Coast Miz Diaz still owns a modestly sized but multi-million dollar contemporary residence up behind the forever chic Chateau Marmont above the Sunset Strip and avid celebrity real estate watchers will recall the former fashion model shelled out almost $9.5 million in 2010 for veteran Showbizzer Candice Bergen's long-time compound in a celebrity packed enclave in the Beverly Hills Post Office area.

*The upper of the two rather spectacular, 6,000-ish square foot simplex penthouses at Walker Tower is currently in contract with an unknown buyer for—so the scuttlebutt goes—above fifty million but below its heart-stopping $55 million price tag.

Love the details, inside & out, and the 'hood.

However, for $9M smackeroos, I want a window in every bathroom, as well as the kitchen. A perhaps a fireplace, too.

I like it a lot. Very nice.

Nice piece, Mama!

So drawn to the decor. No staging. Real life! Every was a delight to study. Beautiful vision and execution throughout. The kitchen-dining area is so intimate and inviting (despite a footprint challenge); feels like a little slice of Connecticut. Always have a soft spot for an entry gallery with room for art -- plus a direct sight line straight on into the living room. Definitely inspires new ideas for my own home.

Bonus -- Am gaga over Kelly Wearstler's website. Saved it in favorites :)

No deck? Perhaps Miss Diaz should know that one thing men enjoy after a nice dinner is stepping outside for a refreshing fart. I'm not up on her personal life but, if she appreciates her hubby, boyfriend, whatever, she should take this info into consideration before purchasing a home.
