Inset: Presley Ann/Getty John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are saying goodbye to their New York City home. The singer, 43, and model, 36, who put a pair of penthouses in the Nolita neighborhood of Manhattan on the market for $18 million in January, have found a buyer. Less than 90 days after they went on the market, the combined property is now in contract for the asking price. They decided to list their New York home after finding they're spending most of their time on the West Coast. "We've realized that because of work and everything, we're really mostly going to be in Los Angeles," Legend told The Wall Street Journal. "So, we're going to focus our home-building energy and renovation energy on what we're doing in L.A."

They planned to combine the units into a duplex penthouse spanning two floors but never finished the renovation according to the publication. Instead, Legend explained, they will look for another property in New York that will not require any additional construction. "We love being there," he told WSJ. "But we're just not there enough to justify putting in the time and energy to combine apartments."

The listing is held by Noble Black of Douglas Elliman. The home features a renovated open kitchen with Miele appliances, Amuneal bespoke custom cabinets and a Cristallo white quartz center island. The penthouse's great room has 12-foot ceilings, a gas fireplace and integrated sound system with a custom wine cellar underneath the stairs.

Under the proposed renovation plan, the combined homes would span half of the 5th floor and the entire 6th floor of the 19th-century building with three exposures to the south, east and north. The 6th floor would house three bedrooms as well as a primary suite. Additionally, the great room could be expanded to include almost 1,200 square feet for entertaining.
