CELEBRITY hairdresser Laurent Dufourg has sold his Tribeca homes for $4.4 million, according to city records.
Dufourg, who’s dressed the locks of everyone from Uma Thurman to Anna Wintour, listed both 2N and 2S at 168 Duane Street with Corcoran’s Cornelia Dobrovolsky. They were snapped up by an LLC.
Dufourg bought the first unit for $736,000 back in 1999 for himself and wife Fabienne when he opened his Prive Salon in the SoHo Grand, he told the Observer back then.
It appears he liked the place, and scooped up 2S for $860,000 in 2003.
A riffle through old news clippings reveals Dobrovolsky tested the sales market with the original apartment last summer, when she listed it as a solo purchase for $2.85 million.
Then 17 days ago, according to StreetEasy.com, both apartments went to contract.
The Corcoran listing offered a “perfect investment opportunityˮ in the form of two separate lofts “which could be both rented until the lease for 2S has expired in May 2015,ˮ when the buyer has the option to combine both into a 3,000 s/f Tribeca prize.
Known as the Dutch building due to its “fanciful Flemish styleˮ the original building was built in 1886. According to Dobrovolsky’s listing, it was converted by one of Rockefeller’s granddaughters from an egg-packing and cheese-making plant into condos.
“The present owners [the Dufourgs] have further transformed this loft into a modern masterpiece,ˮ noted the broker.
