- The three-bed loft apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is listed at $1.8 million
- It boasts a spacious open-plan living area and several stylish in-built features
- But it was the nod to the current owner’s identity that really got viewers talking
The three-bed, one-bath loft apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, recently hit the market for a cool $1.8 million.
It boasts a spacious open-plan living area, stylish in-built features and amazing views over the city – but it was the nod to the current owner’s identity that really got prospective buyers talking.
So, can you guess which A-list celebrity has put their property up for sale?
The corner apartment, which is 1,486 square feet, features high ceilings, exposed brick and white-washed oak flooring.
The listing, by Compass, states that the main living space is fitted with a bioethanol fireplace and is flooded with light, offering sky views overlooking Continental Army Plaza.
The open-plan kitchen has a large Caesarstone-topped center island, stainless countertop with a deep integrated sink, dishwasher and Kitchenaid refrigerator.
The main oven is a BlueStar range which, although the exact model is not stated, has a starting price of $3,995.
Moving through to the main bedroom, which is a king size, there is a full wall of custom built-in closets and storage with an adjacent bathroom boasting a tub and double sink.
The unique 12-unit walk-up building, built in 1920s and converted in 2009, only has two units per floor.
Despite the impressive list of features, it was the current owner’s staggering display of awards that really caught viewers eyes.
Perched on a ledge around the fireplace, were two Emmys, two SAGS, and a Golden Globe trophy.
And, after the listing was shared on social media, users were sent into a frenzy as dozens joined in on the speculation about who the current owner could be.
One wrote: ‘This is the most casual flex you could do lmao also I want this condo so bad.’
Another added: ‘The Golden Globe in the corner… incredible.’
And a third simply said: ‘Do we have answers?’
Among the A-list names suggested were Tina Fey, Julianna Margulies and Claire Foy.
But the clues began to add up after eagle-eyed viewers also realized that there were three baby cribs in one of the bedrooms.
For anyone yet to put it together, the palatial pad belongs to 44-year-old actor Jeremy Strong who is perhaps hoping to upgrade to a home more worthy of Kendall Roy – the wealthy businessman he played in HBO’s recent hit Succession.
Jeremy Strong’s prestigious industry awards
Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series (Succession)
2021: Golden Globe
Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series (Succession)
2021: SAG Award
Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture (The Trial of the Chicago 7)
2022: SAG Award
Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series (Succession)
Outstanding Drama Series (Succession)
The on-screen star won an Emmy as Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in 2020 for his role in Succession – but also claimed a second trophy after the show won Outstanding Drama Series earlier this year.
He took home the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series for the HBO hit in 2021.
Strong’s SAG Awards were given for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture over The Trial of the Chicago 7 in 2021 and he clinched his second – for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series – for Succession in 2022.
Strong and wife Emma Wall, who is a psychiatrist and documentary filmmaker, snapped up the property for $1.6 million in 2019, according to property records.
The pair, who tired the knot at a castle in Denmark in 2016, have three young daughters together – Ingrid, Clara and a third daughter whose name has not been shared.
Strong hit headlines throughout Succession’s five-year run due to his unique form of method acting and his views on the show.
The dramedy featured the actor as Kendall Roy, the son of media mogul Logan Roy, who joins his siblings in battling to win the crown of CEO of their father’s media conglomerate.
In 2021, a profile in The New Yorker revealed that the actor does not see the show, which is written by the brains of Peep Show Jesse Armstrong, as a comedy and that he also refused to break character on-set.
Following widespread uproar and mockery over the comments, his co-stars had plenty to say about his views and even how his acting impacted their performance, which producer Adam McKay said was ‘the reason he was cast.’
On his role as Kendall, Strong said: ‘To me, the stakes are life and death. I take him as seriously as I take my own life.’
