Actress Susan Sarandon’s Sublime Chelsea Duplex Lists for $7.9M
Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon is no stranger to dynamic duos: Brad and Janet, Thelma and Louise, Lorenzo and his oil. But none are so comfortable as her Manhattan duplex loft, a stunning combination of a Chelsea co-op’s entire eighth floor and a unit on the seventh. Now on the market asking $7.9 million, Sarandon’s longtime NYC home is a piece of art on par with the actress’s career.
Situated in the boutique building La Fabrique, the spread spans a gracious 6,061 square feet and counts 6 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. The actress has called it home for decades, since 1991 to be exact, but now Sarandon is looking to find a smaller apartment in the area. Even celebrities decide to downsize.
The main level sits on the eighth floor, accessed via a key-locked elevator and serves up a 60-foot-wide open expanse of southern light. Oversized windows abound, each exposing dramatic views of the most iconic Manhattan buildings and drenching the chic decor in sunshine.
An open kitchen and dining area, as well as a sunken media lounge, offer subtler spaces for entertaining. However, guests won’t find any of the star’s awards on display there. Ironically, they can be admired in a cobalt blue bathroom referred to as the Academy Award bath. The master bedroom is a prize in itself, outfitted with a soaking tub just a few steps from the bed and opening onto a private balcony. Downstairs, the serene guest floor even boasts its own kitchen, so visitors can feel like stars as well.
Mara Flash Blum and Nikki Field of Sotheby’s International Realty have the listing.
