Jon Bon Jovi's NYC Penthouse!
And speaking of Playboy Bunnies, did anyone know Jon Bon Jovi’s mother was one too? Is that where he got his male pinup looks? In the case of Jon, he not only received the handsome appearance, but stability, just enough freedom to nourish his creativity and the brains to know what to do with it all.
Many people know Bon Jovi’s albums, Slippery When Wet and Destination Anywhere, along with his soundtracks for Young Guns II (Blaze of Glory) and Stand Up Guys (Not Running Anymore), not to mention the ten major awards these productions won. Many of us were also aware of his acting in films such as Moonlight and Valentino and TV appearances on shows such as Sex and the City. But there’s so much more to know.
Jon married his high school sweetheart, Dorothea almost 25 years ago. They have four children, have stayed married and have been very active in Special Olympics, the American Red Cross, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, Covenant House, Project H.O.M.E. and The Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation. Jon was also appointed by Barack Obama to the new White House Council for Community Solutions. The Bon Jovis have donated millions of their own to charity and through special performances, then have gone out and worked side by side with the people to execute these projects, including wielding a hammer where needed. Jon Bon Jovi is not just another rock star.
If a person’s home is the mirror of the person themselves, Jon and Dorothea, we like what we see. Now up for sale is the Bon Jovi's 7,452 square foot Soho duplex. With glass walls and terraces seen from almost every room, even the kitchen windows will have you looking instead of cooking. Aside from the pure glamour of it all, the layout is unusually well thought out. The family part of the house is on the lower floor and guests can take the elevator to the upper floor with the formal rooms, another gourmet kitchen, screening room, guest room, full bath and a powder room. Did we mention the wood burning fireplace?
