Hugh Jackman's NYC condo

Hugh Jackman has got that triple threat thing down.

Especially since he’s acting, singing and dancing all the way to the bank – and has so much stored away for a rainy day that he plunked down $25 million to live in the Big Apple’s lap of luxury.

In this edition of Real Estate Rewind, we’re going back to 2008 when the Aussie hunk moved into this massive modernist real estate masterpiece designed by internationally acclaimed architect Richard Meier.

And Celebuzz can give you a glimpse at the inside photos.

The 11,000 square foot, 3-level condo in the artsy enclave of the West Village was previously owned by billionaire Sun Microsystems co-founder Bill Joy, who put it on the market for a whopping $40 million, then $33 million, until the Prisoners star snagged it for a steal (but still staggering) $25M.

And it’s only the very best for the superstar. The 5-bedroom spread is the largest in the building and is filled to the crown moldings with dramatic details – from expansive views of the Hudson River and 3 terraces to huge double-height ceilings and swirling staircase.

The digs include a professional gourmet kitchen, studio/exercise area (to get into tip top Wolverine shape), recreation room for his two kids Ava and Oscar, sauna, library and wine cellar. And we can’t forget the music room where he perfects those Broadway pipes.

Eliza Dushku buys a Boston pad

Eliza Dushku has the perfect cure for being homesick – earn enough money to live the bicoastal dream.

The Boston native just bought herself a pied-a-terre in Beantown, Celebuzz has learned.

And this little taste of home only set the former Buffy The Vampire Slayer ass-kicker back a modest (by celeb standards) $300,000.

The 31-year-old actress, who grew up in Watertown, Mass., purchased the new digs in late July, according to property records, as the perfect home away from Hollywood for her and longtime boyfriend Rick Fox. And it’s got all the New England charm you can get for a few hundred grand.

Located in trendy Beacon Hill just north of Boston Common, the 2-bedroom, 1-bath condo boasts classic brick Federal-style architecture with tons of historic character.

Each charming room has been remodeled and is just waiting for Dushku’s style-savvy touch. But we’re pretty sure there are a few things she won’t lay her hands on, like all the original details that have been kept intact, from the high ceilings to ornate moldings.

Just minutes from all the restaurant hotspots and shops on Charles and Newbury streets, the quaint space for two is a great investment as a rental for all the nearby Boston College, MIT and Harvard students or just a crash pad for Dushku’s family visits.
