After an unsuccessful stint on the sales market, Bethenny Frankel’s condo in Soho is now a $13,000 per month rental. Frankel, star of Real Housewives of New York City and founder of the Skinnygirl empire, first tried to sell the two-bedroom apartment at 22 Mercer Street for $5.25 million in February but to no avail. While it’s now listed as a rental, the apartment is still available for purchase at a slightly lower price of $4.95 million, Curbed reports. The loft spans 2,392 square feet and boasts a working wood-burning fireplace, a balcony and 14-foot ceilings.
The entry foyer leads into a spacious 25-foot wide sunken room that features super high ceilings and three east-facing double paned arched windows. This space also includes the wood-burning fireplace and a balcony that overlooks Broadway, the only apartment in the 16-unit building to have one.
The kitchen’s enormous center-island and countertops feature imported marble and the space is equipped with appliances by Miele, Subzero and Wolf. Plus, just off to the side, a pantry room contains dual wine refrigerators.
The listing calls the chic master bedroom a “pin drop sanctuary.” The walk-in closet was custom-made and features an abundance of storage. The master bathroom has a double vanity, deep soaking tub and a glass-enclosed steam shower. The guest room also offers custom closets and an en-suite bathroom.
Amenities include a multi-zoned central heat and air, a washer-dryer and a custom home Creston system with Sonos and speakers throughout. Located on a cobblestone block of Mercer Street, the building features a landscaped roof terrace for all of its residents to enjoy.
