Musician Moby is facing real estate woes on both coasts this week. He has been trying to sell his charming New York co-op in the El Dorado since last summer (check out pictures from our estate of the day posting here
) but seems to be having trouble finding a buyer his co-op board will love. Moby bought the two-bedroom tower apartment for $4.5 million in September 2005 and it is spread out over four levels and has terraces with terra cotta tiles, stone parapets and of course, mega views. He originally listed it at $7.5 million and found a buyer but the El Dorado co-op board turned the buyer down. Moby got smart and Main Street reports
that he is now offering $75,000 as a finder's fee to anyone who can help him find a buyer that can pass muster.
As we heard a couple months ago, Moby and his friend fashion designer Stacey Bendet bought a $3 million house in the Hollywood Hills with the plans to turn it into a showplace for stylists and celebs with the garage as Moby's recording studio. Now neighbors aren't thrilled with idea of a music studio
in the area and are warning him not to pursue the renovation. A neighbor said to the NY Post that they kicked Prince off the street for making noise and so Moby should be careful. Gee, life as a peace-loving vegan millionaire is tougher than I thought.
