It's not Leonardo DiCaprio's apartment, but it might as well have been; the actor spent quite a great deal of time in the three-bedroom Manhattan place. The penthouse at 300 E. 55th St. (pictured above and in the slideshow below) served as the home for DiCaprio's character in the current film "The Wolf of Wall Street."
DiCaprio plays Jordan Belfort, a stockbroker who defrauds investors in a 1990s securities scheme. His apartment centers largely in the film, which is based on a true story. New York's Daily News describes a scene in which DiCaprio and his "cronies" beat up a colleague in the glassy living room for tattling on their deals.
Although the film is set in the 1990s, the penthouse looks completely 21st century, with sleek finishes and appliances. Spanning more than 2,500 square feet, the three-bedroom, three-bath home has floor-to-ceiling windows. Its bathrooms include teak and limestone vanities, and the master bath has a steam shower and soaking tub.
The apartment is located in the Milan, a luxury condo building that has had its fair share of other productions: "Gossip Girl" filmed scenes in the lobby as did "The Good Wife" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm." The $6.495 million listing is held by Ryan Serhant and Peggy Zabakolas of Nestseekers.
