And while she's not inviting the media in for tea just yet, E! News has taken an exclusive video tour of a unit in Holmes' new building in Manhattan's artsy Chelsea neighborhood—and we've got plenty of details about the actress's new address for you!
Starting with how much she's probably paying...
A source told E! News that Holmes has leased a two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath apartment in the Chelsea Mercantile for about $12,500.
Meanwhile, neighbor Christopher Hyland, whose own 4,000-square-foot pad on another floor is on the market for $23 million, exclusively tells E! News that it's "a joy" to have Holmes in the building.
"She is a jewel and class act," Hyland says of the 33-year-old actress. "This building knows celebrities from the day it has been opened...The list is long. It is like Hollywood in the east, the Dakota of Chelsea," he added, name-checking John Lennon's former (and Yoko Ono's current) home on Central Park West. (Fun fact: The exterior of the Dakota was featured prominently in Cruise's Vanilla Sky.)
And the building is well-equipped to handle the famous faces, Hyland says, noting the "great staff and security," as well as amenities like in-house private laundry, cleaning and concierge services; a gym; a large rooftop deck; and a playroom for the building's smaller tenants.
Though Suri may be more interested in closet space...
And, judging by Hyland's 12-room spread, there's plenty!
The publisher of Hyland, a magazine for iPad focusing on architecture, design, travel and other creative pursuits, pointed out numerous little extras that separate the Mercantile from ordinary apartments on a private tour of his place today.
From the double drawing room to the "King's Throne" bathroom, not a corner of Hyland's home was left untouched by artistic hands.
Holmes may not have had a chance to deck her new apartment out to a tee yet, but it appears that she has a stunning foundation upon which to build!
