Five months after the celebrity duo were spotted touring an available condo at their old Brewster Carriage House building, the Wall Street Journal has confirmed that Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are the proud new owners of this $9M penthouse in NYC. It's back to their old stomping grounds at 374 Broome in Nolita, but now with loads more space—both indoors and outdoors—for their growing family.

Legend and Teigen formerly owned this one-bedroom apartment in the same historic Brewster Carriage House building, which they sold in August 2016 for $4.5 million. After a major two-year gut renovation, the penthouse apartment had been on and off the market since 2014 and was asking $9.5 million back in December—Legend and Teigen "scored" the property on May 10th for $9.02 million, according to public records and the listing history with Douglas-Elliman.

The three-bedroom, three-bathroom penthouse at 374 Broome #PHA features 2,610 square feet of luxury living space plus an 1,800-square-foot terrace roof deck built for entertaining with irrigated gardens, an outdoor chef's kitchen (perfect for cookbook author Teigen), an outdoor sound system, and motorized projection screen (perfect for near-EGOT winner Legend). Not to mention those Manhattan views. It's all ideal for the couple's growing family: daughter Luna Simone was born in April 2016; son Miles Theodore was born on May 14th, 2018.

Indoors, the sun-drenched open floor plan living/dining area features a gas fireplace, soaring ceilings, a chef's kitchen with a Cristallo natural white quartz island, and all-Miele appliances, an extra-large stainless sink with Italian custom plated kitchen faucet, and custom Amuneal Bespoke kitchen cabinets that are iron-wrapped with a hand finished, natural wax, dark oak interior, and hand oxidized brass.

There are two master baths with spa-like ensuite baths at either end of the loft, with heated floors covered in Mutina Bark stone tile, Wetstyle soaking tubs and dual sinks with walnut vanities and Bianco Dolomiti marble, separate rainwater showers, and walk-in or walk-through closets.

Built in 1856, the historic building was originally the Brewster & Co. of Broome Street Carriage Factory, and was then at the center of America's most important industry: horse-drawn vehicles. "As cars were to Detroit, carriages were to Broome Street," said the Daily News in 2012, when the building reopened as luxury condos after an arduous seven-year restoration and redevelopment process to save the building from demolition.

The couple is known for putting their own creative stamp on every property they buy, the results of which are regularly featured in Architectural Digest, so we can't wait to see what they do to make this space their own.

"Our style is chic and tailored but also earthy and casual," Legend told the magazine in March 2013, in a feature on their "Thai temple" oasis in the Hollywood Hills (which Legend and Teigen just sold in July 2017).
