Leonardo Dicaprio's home: eco-friendly Riverhouse condo in New York

Eco-warrior and Oscar-nominee Leonardo Dicaprio bought a condo in this eco-friendly building Riverhouse in New York in 2008.



One of the bedrooms in Riverhouse building, as featured on The Riverhouse's official website. We can't guarantee that it's Leonardo Dicaprio's bedroom, though it should be built to the same layout.


The shared lobby of Leonardo Dicaprio's New York apartment building. According to the Huffington Post, "the 264-unit condominium glass tower overlooks the Hudson river and a park, and boasts low emission paints, a 24-hour fresh filtered air system, a water treatment facility and rotating solar panels".

Master Baths by David Rockwell feature frameless glass showers, Neptune Zen soaking tubs, and walls and floors clad in honed-finish travertine with teakwood marble accents.





Riverhouse's living room is contemporary but has some retro elements, such as the Eames chair and vintage trunk used as a sideboard.


A bigger view of Riverhouse living room shows hints of a global/ethnic theme, bringing more warmth and characters to the room.

Di Caprio explained his purchase by explaining the building’s pioneering characteristics: “Riverhouse is the first example of just how accessible and feasible green technology is. It’s a revolutionary building". The actor himself owns a hybric car and had solar panel installed in his Los Angeles home.





 Another typical bedroom at Riverhouse.

Fancy being Leonardo Dicaprio's neighbor? Average Price: One-bedroom ($835,000) Five-bedroom ($8 million).

Again, these images show typical rooms of Riverhouse, Leo's private home may not be the same, but should be similar.

A rare eco choice for a celebrity, but not surprising given that Dicaprio's most successful role to date is in "Blood Diamonds".
