Personal trainer Bob Harper took over as the host of “The Biggest Loser” in 2015, the same year he bought this one-bedroom condo at Chelsea’s 124 West 24th Street for $1,875,000. He’s now put the loft-like home back on the market for $2,295,000. According to the listing, Harper underwent “an extensive cosmetic renovation on the property,” which included darkening the hardwood floors, redoing the kitchen, and replacing all fixtures. Coupled with the space’s exposed brick walls and wood beams, the place is super stylish with a cool moody-industrial vibe.

The last time this Chelsea townhouse sold, it made tons of headlines for its super-stylish interiors and the fact that it was owned by Emmy-winning soap opera actress Ellen Parker, best known for a long run as Maureen Reardon Bauer on “Guiding Light.” That was in 2016, and it fetched $7,350,000. It then underwent a modern renovation and relisted in 2018 for $8 million. There were no takers, so it’s now back, asking a slightly reduced $7.7 million. Located on a charming tree-lined block at 426 West 22nd Street, the home is made up of an owner’s duplex plus two income-producing apartments.
