Actor Stephen Dorff Lists Chelsea Penthouse Loft With Party-Ready Roof Deck for $3M

The Chelsea loft penthouse at 251 West 19th Street belonging to actor Stephen Dorff just hit the market for $3 million, reports the Wall Street Journal. The apartment’s best feature is undoubtedly its 850-square-foot private roof terrace with a wet bar/kitchen, outdoor shower and Empire State Building views. Dorff was a teen heartthrob in the ’90s–known for the boxing film, “The Power of One” (1992), and the 1998 superhero film “Blade”–and an indie It Boy of sorts in the following decade, appearing in cult films like John Waters’ “Cecil B. Demented” and slacker/grunge time capsule “S.F.W..” A stream of typical “evil guy” roles followed until 2010, when he starred in the Sofia Coppola film “Somewhere,” which, perhaps ironically, is the tale of a disaffected hotel-dwelling actor.

But Dorff has definitely worked hard if nothing else. And he may finally be seeing the benefits: WSJ quotes the actor in a 2013 interview as describing his less-than-savvy spending habits during the early days of his career: “After movies, I would rent these really expensive houses, and then I would run out of money and have to do another movie. I didn’t like that feeling of having to take something I didn’t want,” he says. “Now I’m into buying—forget this renting stuff.”

The actor bought a beach house in Malibu in 2003, then purchased this Chelsea loft condominium for $1.65 million in 2006. After an attempt to sell the condo for $2.65M in 2009, the top-floor aerie was taken off the market until now, when it surfaced again asking $3M. If the apartment sells for anything near the ask, it should net the actor a tidy profit. Dorff, 42, appears in the upcoming horror film “Leatherface,” (no, he doesn’t play the title role) and is rumored to have been dating 22-year-old model Charlotte McKinney since last year, so perhaps more of a love nest and less of a bachelor pad will be next.

This particular bachelor pad, though, is well-suited for anyone who likes to entertain—or just live well. The duplex penthouse has 12-foot ceilings, oversized windows, postcard city views and that aforementioned roof terrace, all of which benefitted from a recent meticulous renovation. Currently configured as a one-bedroom with two full baths, you’ll find a Sony AV RMT surround sound system in the apartment’s living room and bedroom.

An open kitchen shows off custom cabinetry, a breakfast bar and stainless steel appliances, including a Miele washer/dryer. The dining area is more than large enough to entertain guests, but you’ll want to head upstairs–accessed by a dramatic cylindrical spiral staircase–to that roof deck with northern and southern city views. Also up here are a wet bar area with a stainless steel sink and refrigerator, outdoor shower, storage shed, and lighting.

The master suite offers a custom-built closet, a full bath and spa shower and electronic solar shades. Throughout the home are new lighting and central AC, and the building offers a full time doorman and concierge, all in prime Chelsea.
