Leonardo DiCaprio buys $12.5m home

6 May 2014 / 2 years 5 months ago

Leonardo DiCaprio has splashed out $12.5 million on a new apartment.

The 'Wolf of Wall Street' actor has bought a two-bedroom fourth-floor property at the Delos building in New York's Greenwich Village, and the complex - which has WELL certification for its holistic approach to improving human wellness - boasts facilities including vitamin C-infused showers, purified air and water, and a circulated aromatherapy air supply.

The property also boasts posture-supportive heat reflexology flooring and 'dawn simulation' provided by a circadian lighting design.

In addition, Donna Karan's Urban Zen is providing the building's residents with a 'wellness concierge' to "curate and coordinate your daily wellness experience," the New York Post newspaper reports.

Until a luxury duplex apartment in the same building is sold, Leonardo has also been told he can use a $1.25 million parking space which comes with the neighbouring property.

The 39-year-old actor has been on a property buying spree recently, splashing out $10 million last month on an apartment adjacent to a $5 million home he already owns in the eco-friendly 2 River Terrace in Battery Park City.

And in February, he spent $6.5 million on a six-bedroom mansion in Palm Springs, California.

The 1.34 acre property has seven bathrooms, a detached state-of-the art gymnasium, a pool house and a tennis court with a glass pavilion surround. 

The multi-level, single-story mansion, which was designed by architect Donald Wexler, was built in 1965 and, although it's been fully renovated, it still features mid-century architecture.
