Academy Award-winning star Jennifer Lawrence listed her stunning Manhattan penthouse in The Laurel last July. And as a result of a downturn in the New York luxury-condo market, this celebrity real estate has had a price change! Originally listed for $14.25 million, potential buyers can now pick up this beautiful property for $12 million. (Image Credit: Compass Realty)
From Kentucky to Fame
Lawrence lives the fairytale so many people fantasize about. As a child, the acting bug bit the born-and-bred Kentuckian in plays put on by her church group. However, in the quintessential case of right place/right time, a talent scout discovered the future star on a 2006 vacation to New York with her parents. The audition went so well, she quickly found herself on the Hollywood fast track.
Today, at only age 29, award wins pack the star’s resume: Academy Award for Best Actress in Silver Linings Playbook, three Golden Globes, a BAFTA award, seven MTV Movie Awards and six People’s Choice Awards. Her unassuming, down-to-earth personality and ability to keep life’s priorities straight in the face of fame, fortune and continuous media attention make her America’s girl next door. And it doesn’t hurt that her acting roles are some of the best in Hollywood.
A Dream Manhattan Penthouse
By 2016, Lawrence’s Hollywood success afforded her any living accommodations that suited her fancy. As such, she picked this glamorous duplex penthouse on New York’s Upper East Side at the top of The Laurel, a 30-story condominium. Aside from its stunning interior and views to die for, its 3,000-square-foot, two-floor outdoor terraces encompass all one could ask for gracious entertaining. Homeowners and guests alike will love the outdoor kitchen, fireplace with pergola, built-in pingpong table and amazing views of the city and the Hudson River.
Within, sun shines through the walls of glass and fill the 4,073-square-foot apartment’s three bedrooms, five baths with abundant light. Stunning city views abound in the formal living and dining room as well as the game room. And the eat-in chef’s kitchen has everything a serious cook could desire.

But the highlight of this Manhattan penthouse is the elegant master suite. Soaring ceilings, oversized windows and white decor make for crisp, welcoming homeowner’s retreat. This private sanctuary also has direct access to the extensive terrace. Moreover, the spacious master bath also boasts city views from both the soaking tub and the glass enclosed shower.
The Laurel’s amenities add yet another degree of luxury. The concierge, full-time doorman, gym, pool, sauna, screening room and private storage are available to residents.
Superstar Jennifer Lawrence is selling her glamorous Manhattan penthouse which she bought in 2016 for $15.6 million. Listed in July 2019 for $15.45 million, the luxury home has gone through two price cuts. It is now listed at $12 million with Pamela D’Arc of Compass, New York City.
