Jessica Chastain buys Manhattan co-op for $5.1 million

Oscar-nominee Jessica Chastain and her longtime boyfriend, Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo, have splurged on a luxurious yet historic Manhattan co-op for $5.1 million.

Built in 1885, the nine-room, 3,200-square-foot Midtown duplex is located in the historic Osborne Apartments across the street from Carnegie Hall and is teeming with vintage charm.


Jessica’s spectacular unit features four bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms and luxurious accents, like hand-carved mahogany doors, gold crown moulding, Tiffany glass-stained windows and a 50-bottle wine refrigerator in its sizeable kitchen.

Additionally, the 37-year-old actress and her fashion-executive beau will surely appreciate the home’s classic architectural details, like its large bay windows, ornate stone fireplaces and 14-foot ceilings. A key to Gramercy Park is surely the icing on the cake.

There's also plenty of star-studded history to go with the century-old abode, which once belonged to legendary West Side Story composer Leonard Bernstein. Other famous residents include Tony award-winning composer Adam Guettel (of The Light in the Piazza) and New York Knicks President Phil Jackson.

The couple are though to be upgrading from their Greenwich Village townhouse, which they purchased for $1.2 million back in 2012.

Jessica, who split with director Ned Benson in 2010, has been dating Gian for more than three years. Though her handsome Italian beau is less famous than his movie-star girlfriend, he also boasts quite a pedigree. The 33-year-old count comes from a long line of nobility, with his high-society roots going back more than 1,000 years in Bergamo.
