New York apartment
After their secret wedding, the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and James Bond star Daniel Craig and English actress Rachel Weisz bought an apartment in New York. Reportedly, they spent $11.5 million on this New York building, and they are said to have settled on the plush looking building after an exhaustive property search of the city. Interestingly, the Oscar winning actress and Daniel, became close while filming movie thriller Dream House together.
Location: The apartment is located at 20 Greene Street of SoHo area of Manhattan. SoHo has a rich cultural heritage and refers "SOuth of HOuston (Street)". SoHo was the farmland given to the slaves of the Dutch West Indies Company during the colonial period.
Accommodation: This luxury building is a three bedroom, three bathroom triplex home with a total living area of 4,350 square feet. The couple also has a 2,000 square feet of free outdoor space before the apartment.
Features: The apartment has a media room and a private roof garden for the couple to spend their free time. There is woodburning fireplace in the apartment for the winters. The roof garden has its own kitchen for weekend parties and barbecue dinners.
Neighborhood: The area is full of lofts and galleries of many artists. The SoHo district in New York is full of rich people and celebrities. But, in the recent past some middle class people have also moved in here.
Craig loves being special in everything he does. Thus, a limited edition black colored Audi S6 is one of the primary vehicles in his luxurious garage. This people friendly car is a superior version of Audi which incorporates lovable features like capacious interiors, blistering speed, all-weather grip, and the world famous brand name. Although not a car enthusiast, Craig gifted this car to himself in order to be the proud owner of a ‘limited version’ Audi species. This Audi creation is a performance centric car with a midsize dimension that allows multiple seating options. Thus, it is assumable that Audi S6 probably meets Craig’s specifications of a family car.
Lexus Rx 350
This classy car is meant for the niche clientele. Hence, it is self explanatory why Craig owns a Lexus Rx 350 additional to his Audi S6 sedan. This midsize plush crossover SUV has more things than performance in order to be Craig’s favorite. The spacious interiors, monstrous road strength and alluring high-tech features make it the hot favorite vehicle of a lot of celebrity clientele including Craig. As this onscreen super sleuth is quite down to earth in real life, it was not at all a surprise for someone to see Daniel Craig drive to the sets of the new James Bond movie in his posh Lexus Rx 350.

The English actor reportedly indulged in the luxury Vantage roadster to celebrate his birthday, but the rumors has it that its a birthday present from his wife, actress Rachel Weisz.
