Jessica Chastain lists stunning Midtown NYC home for $7.45m

Oscar-winning actress Jessica Chastain has put her historic Midtown home on the market for $7.45 million, replete with chandeliers, soaring ceilings and five fireplaces.

The majestic four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom apartment, once home to conductor Leonard Bernstein, was listed for sale earlier this month with Sotheby’s. It’s located in The Osborne on West 57th Street, a landmark building located across from Carnegie Hall and less than two blocks from Central Park.

Built in 1885, the building has housed other big names in the arts including writer Fran Lebowitz and actress Lynn Redgrave.

“When I found out about all the other artists and actors who have lived here, I was in love,” Chastain once gushed to Architectural Digest.

The lavish fourth-floor space is adorned with Gilded Age details and Tiffany glass. The listing boasts of the “sun-drenched” living room’s 14-foot ceilings, mahogany paneling and elaborately carved doorways and windows. There is a parlor, dining room, library, laundry room and five wood-burning fireplaces.

Chastain acquired the property in 2015, per city records. She renovated it with her now-husband Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo, an Italian fashion executive and count.

“On those rare occasions when Jessica and Gian Luca are able to push pause, they can light a fire and relax,” designer Jesse Carrier told Architectural Digest in 2017. “From room to room there’s a warm, welcoming glow that’s meant to signify homecoming.”

Chastain originally hails from California but has been a New Yorker for more than 20 years.

In 2003 she graduated from The Juilliard School, which awarded her an honorary doctorate last week.

She has performed on stage and on screen in such noteworthy shows and films as “A Doll’s House,” “The Help,” “Zero Dark Thirty” and “Molly’s Game.” In 2022 she won the Academy Award for Best Actress for “The Eyes of Tammy Faye.”
