Susan Sarandon Reels In the Full Asking Price for Her Bright NYC Duplex
Susan Sarandon, star of 90’s classics like Thelma & Louise and Stepmom, has sold her longtime NYC duplex loft for its full asking price of $7.9 million. Even more impressively, there were multiple offers made on the unit and the contract was signed within two weeks of listing. The 5-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom loft boasts views of iconic NYC landmarks like the Empire State Building and the One World Trade Center, and with over 6,000 square feet of space there’s plenty of room for entertainment, a home office, or even an additional bedroom. According to the Wall Street Journal, the Academy Award-winner has owned this apartment for almost 30 years. It even had an ironic space dedicated to the star’s many awards: A bright blue powder room.
Perhaps it was the home’s sun-filled spaces, celebrity charm, or coveted location that brought so many offers for the Academy Award-winner. Located in the chic Le Fabrique building, the duplex spans the entire eighth floor and includes an additional unit on the seventh floor perfect for housing guests – complete with a kitchen and its own terrace. A short lift down on the loft’s private key elevator to the bustling city streets reveals its central location between the neighborhoods of Greenwich Village, Flat Iron, and West Chelsea.
Close to the famed boutiques of Fifth Avenue, but not too far away from both finance-centric and artsy Downtown, the new owner of this loft has struck a perfect balance between work and play in the heart of Manhattan.
Mara Flash Blum and Nikki Field of Sotheby’s International Realty held the listing.
