Bethenny Frankel Lists Her Loft
A true “New York Housewife,” Bethenny Frankel has just listed her SoHo apartment with Douglas Elliman for $6.995 million.
Bethenny got her start on The Apprentice: Martha Stewart, before starring on eight seasons of the Real Housewives of New York. In addition to her widely successful brand Skinny Girl (which she sold a part of, back in 2011, for a whopping $120 MM), Bethenny also heads the disaster relief charity BStrong -- which provided help to those affected by Hurricane Harvey & Maria, the Mexico City earthquake, and now distributes PPE to hospitals throughout the U.S.
Her spacious loft measures over 4,000 sq. ft. and has 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. (It originally was a 4-bedroom unit, before Bethenny made some extensive renovations to the place.) Thanks to the 11-foot ceilings and large bay windows, the entirety of the space is illuminated by natural sunlight.
Upon entering the loft, you’ll notice an expansive open floor plan, which connects the foyer with the immense great room, dining area, living room, and chef’s kitchen – where you’ll find state-of-the-art, stainless-steel appliances, as well as a waterfall marble countertop sitting on a large island with seating for six.
The master suite is also quite large, with a massive walk-in closet, a beauty room, and a luxurious bathroom with a shower, a free-standing soaking tub, sleek looking cabinetry, and white marble flooring. The bed also comes with a custom designed, built-in headboard, a seating area, and oversized leaning mirror.
The second bedroom sports “city-quiet” windows – which are quite important in SoHo -- as well as a customized wardrobe closet. And the home office also has its own en-suite and access to the laundry room. So, while Bethenny decided to stretch out and make the place more open, its new owner can add back a bedroom or two, if needed.
Some other amenities include a fully integrated sound system, custom lighting with motorized shades, and elegant marble and oak accents throughout.
As for the building – it features a key-locked elevator, a video-intercom system, a large shared rooftop terrace, and 24-hour on-call maintenance. The SoHo neighborhood of downtown Manhattan (short for “South of Houston” street) has long been prized for its historical cobblestone roads, beautiful facades, art galleries, high-end boutiques, and exceptional dining and nightlife.
Noble Black, David Son and Erik Ternon of Douglas Elliman currently hold the listing to the Frankel apartment.
