AUSTRALIAN stylist Anna Bingemann has bought a one bedroom West Village apartment for $1.495 million.
Bingeman — who has dressed a red carpet of stars from Tom Cruise to Cameron Diaz — married writer, actor, director Griffin Dunnein 2009. Only her name is on the deeds for unit 2C at 302 West 12th Street filed with the city last week.
The glitzy wedding attracted a host of Aussie superstars including Nicole Kidman with her husband Keith Urban, Naomi Watts with Liev Schreiber, and Wolverine Hugh Jackman. The groom’s father, writer Dominick Dunne, was also among the guests.
The couple bought a $2.8 million Soho loft at 129 Lafayette Street, listed at the time, according to the New York Observer, by Douglas Elliman‘s Taylor Schultz and Debra Kameros.
Kameros and fellow Elliman broker Susan Weiner were the listing agents for the West 12th Street apartment just purchased by Bingemann.
It’s a 597 s/f unit with a wood burning fireplace and beamed ceilings in a pre-war Bing & Bing building overlooking Abingdon Square Park.

Urban chicken coops – and the fresh eggs that come from them – have become the hottest trend among health conscious eaters and locavores. But which cities have embraced this trend the most?
Redfin, the tech-powered real estate brokerage, named the top five cities to be a chicken, based on the number of homes that have hit the market in the past three months with chicken enclosures mentioned as a feature in the multiple listing service description.
Portland tops the list as the city with the most chicken coops.
California was well represented, with three of the top five cities, including Ventura (#2), San Diego (#3), and Sacramento (#4) on the list. Seattle rounds out the list at number five, making all five cities on the West Coast.
