If you thought Bethenny Frankel had a scattered personality on “The Real Housewives of New York,” just check out her real estate game. After splitting from ex-husband Jason Hoppy, the reality star bought a $4.2 million Soho loft in April 2015, the same month she picked up a $3 million+ Hamptons compound. She also bought a second Soho loft around that time to serve as an office for her “Skinny Girl” empire. Once the embattled couple (he was recently arrested for allegedly harassing her) finalized their divorce, she sold their former $7 million Tribeca loft this past October in just one day. People now reports that Frankel put the Soho loft at 22 Mercer Street on the market for $5.25 in order to find a larger home for herself and daughter Bryn (and from the sound of it, get away from its divorce-era juju), and she admitted to the mag that, “I have been doing really well in real estate and I’ve got the bug.”

The 2,392-square-foot loft has two bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths, walnut flooring, Crestron touch panels and built-in Sonos speakers, and sound-proof windows. The entry hallway was cleverly designed so as not to be wasted space; there’s lots of built-in storage, a wall of art artwork, window seat, and desk.

The 25-foot-wide sunken great room is highlighted by three triple-paned, arched windows, all framed in mahogany. You’ll also find 14-foot ceilings, a working wood-burning fireplace, and a balcony here. This space is open to a high-end kitchen, which is bathed in imported marble and has an extra large island and pantry.

The romantic master suite has an en-suite bathroom and lots of built-in storage, but most impressive is the floor-to-ceiling, custom walk-in closet. In addition to Bethenny’s pooch Cookie at the foot of the bed, the listing photos give us a fun peek at her incredible shoe collection.

Bethenny did up the second bedroom as a girly retreat for Bryn, complete with a window seat and more built-in storage. It’s almost as large as the master and also has an en-suite bath.

Bethenny enlisted “Million Dollar Listing” star Frederik Eklund to sell the apartment; he was also responsible for her one-day Tribeca sale. She told People that she bought the home “when I needed to get some stability for Bryn and myself and I needed a home for us. And though she thinks it’s “an amazing place,” she’d now like something bigger. Plus, she says she “never bought the apartment with the intention of living there permanently,” but rather, “I added value and now I’ll find another place to do the same thing to.” This new place will be downtown since Bryn goes to school in the area.
