    Default Billy Joel's ex-wife sells New York townhouse for $11.65m

    Billy Joel's third ex-wife Katie Lee has sold the luxurious New York townhouse she got as part of her generous divorce payout.
    The cookbook author and former Top Chef host split from the Piano Man in 2009 after five years of marriage.
    The singer had paid $5.9 million for the West Village home in 2006, and one renovation and a Nate Berkus redesign later, Katie Lee decided she wanted $12.9 million for her once-happy home.





    That was one year ago, and in the time since, the gorgeous 4000 sq ft townhouse has received high-profile visits, including one from LeBron James.
    He ended up not being in a New York state of mind, but Katie Lee finally found a buyer who paid $11.65million for home.
    This uber chic four-story Perry Street townhouse boasts four bedrooms, four baths, four fireplaces, an elevator and a landscaped garden wired for sound.



    The master suite features a beautiful and private landscaped terrace and matchbooked marble detailing.
    Waterworks fixtures in the bath, and an antiqued silver leaf closet and dressing room add a unique quality to the property.
    As a renowned cook, Katie Lee had installed a chef's kitchen with a six-burner Wolf stove, custom cabinetry and wine storage.




    The new owners can even choose to enjoy a daily swim as there is a pool which has been cleverly covered and is currently used for storage space in a secret spot under the floorboards.

    love the house itself but hate how it's decorated. especially that nasty tacky paneled dressing room/closet.

    Love it, but does need a redecorate.

    Why in the name of God would there be green accents in that room? It looks soooo cheap!

    I really like this. I'd get all new furniture though and paint.
