Jennifer Lawrence’s Manhattan penthouse hits the market!

Academy award winner and star of American Hustle, Silver Lining Playbook, and The Hunger Games – Jennifer Lawrence recently put her gorgeous New York penthouse in The Laurel up for sale. With a downturn in the Manhattan luxury-condo market, she has lowered the original price of $15.6 million to $14.25 million, which is now down to $12million!

Jennifer had originally purchased this luxury penthouse for a whopping $15.6 million in the year 2016. However, this huge loss might not faze her, as she is one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood! Jennifer has lived the fairytale that so many people just dream about. She was born and raised in Kentucky and also acted in plays that were put on her by the church group as a teenager. For her, it was just a matter of being in the right place, at the right time – in a 2006 vacation trip to New York at the age of 14 with her parents, she was discovered by a talent scout, who arranged an immediate audition. The audition was a super hit, and the talent scout convinced her parents to let her audition in Los Angeles. From there, she was on a super fast track, leading to television quickly, followed by movie roles.

What more? Fast forward to today, at the age of 29, the actress has won an Academy Award for Best Actress in Silver Lining Playbook and has also pocketed a BAFTA Award, three Golden Globe Awards, six People’s Choice Awards, and seven MTV Movie Awards. Jennifer Lawrence’s unassuming, down-to-earth personality and ability to keep her life’s priorities straight in the face of a lot of fame, good fortune, and constant media attention has made her America’s ‘girl next door’!

In 2016, the actress could afford any living style that suited her fancy, and she went ahead and picked a glamorous duplex penthouse on New York’s Upper East Side, at the top of The Laurel – a 30-storey luxury condominium. Along with its breathtaking interiors and views to die for, the 4.073-square-foot penthouse with two-floor outdoor terraces encompasses all that you could possibly ask for!

It has an outdoor kitchen, a fireplace with a pergola, and a built-in Ping-Pong table. The penthouse also enjoys an amazing view of the city and the majestic Hudson River. In total, it has three bedrooms and five bathrooms that are filled with natural light through walls of glass. The formal living and dining area is surrounded by the stunning views of the gorgeous city, and the eat-in chef’s kitchen has everything for the serious cook! The master suite is unusually huge, and the game room opens up to yet another breathtaking view. The condominium’s amenities include a concierge, a full-time doorman, a fully-equipped gym, a swimming pool, a sauna, a screening room, and a private storage area.
