Actor Dan Aykroyd has listed his eight-room triplex penthouse in Manhattan for $7,000,000.

The New York Times' Josh Barbanel wrote yesterday about Aykroyd's listing of the unit, which takes up one-half of the top three floors of the 46-story postwar Leighton House tower at 360 E. 88th Street in Manhattan. Aykroyd's wife, Donna Dixon, paid $3.7 million for the unit in 2000, the paper reported.

Features in Aykroyd's unit include four bedrooms, four full baths, one half-bath, a 500-square-foot terrace off the living room, two working fireplaces and a total of about 3,400 square feet of space, according to listing information and the Times. Other features include an elevator, an eat-in kitchen with granite countertops, a large formal dining room, a study with a double-height ceiling, picture windows, and a second-floor master bedroom with a soaking tub and a separate shower, according to listing information.

Aykroyd has owned a lot of real estate over the years, and this isn't the only real estate activity that Aykroyd has been involved in lately. His 4,828-square-foot house at 7708 Woodrow Wilson Drive in Los Angeles currently is on the market for $4,200,000. Our friends over at the Real Estalker have done a nice job lately of reporting on Aykroyd's listing of that property, and of his previously trying to lease the property. Over the years, the Woodrow Wilson Drive house has come on and off the market many, many times. In 2002, for instance, Aykroyd and Dixon listed the house for $2.5 million or for lease at $19,950 a month. And in 2000, they listed the house for $2.45 million.

Aykroyd also owns a house at 8071 Selma Avenue in Los Angeles, which he and his brother Peter have lived in in the past. Aykroyd also has a home on Martha's Vineyard, at 16 Deer Path Lane in Chilmark, Mass.
