Emma Watson searching for home in New York (2 PICS)

Harry Potter star Emma Watson is searching for a home in New York.

The actress, 22, has been house-hunting in the Big Apple recently and has shown interest in a penthouse apartment in Manhattan’s Upper East Side area.

Harry Potter star Emma Watson is reportedly moving to New York – and appears keen on making this upscale apartment building her base.

The actress, who played Hermione Granger in the blockbuster film franchise, has reportedly twice viewed a $3.3 million penthouse with a wraparound terrace in Manhattan’s swankiest neighborhood, the Upper East Side.

The actress was said to be “dressed down in jeans and flip-flops” as she viewed the 1,500-square-foot condo with two corner master bedroom suites, a windowed chef’s kitchen, a formal dining room and a foyer, according to real estate insider Jennifer Gould Keil.

The luxury two bedroom, two bathroom pad had previously been listed for $4 million, but the price has been slashed to $3.3 million, according to the New York Post.

Listing broker Tristan Harper of Prudential Douglas Elliman declined to comment.

If Watson goes through with the sale, it will be her second property purchase – she bought a $4.8 million townhouse in her native North London in 2009.
