John and Chrissy had bought two neighbouring penthouses in Nolita, Manhattan, and planned to combine them into one huge residence on two floors, with over 3,300 square feet of rooftop terraces boasting incredible views of the city skyline.

The finished penthouse would have boasted six bedrooms and seven bathrooms, with a total of 6,164 square feet of living space. However, they have now listed the two penthouses for $18million (£13.3million) with Noble Black, Jennifer Stillman, David Son and Corinne Cahlon, all of Douglas Elliman, New York City, according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.

Speaking of the decision to step away from the project, John recently told The Wall Street Journal: "We've realised that because of work and everything, we're really mostly going to be in Los Angeles, so we're going to focus our home-building energy and renovation energy on what we're doing in L.A."
