Bethenny Frankel sells $7M Tribeca loft in just one day

Being a reality TV star and having a broker who’s one as well certainly didn’t hurt Bethenny Frankel’s odds of selling her luxe Tribeca loft. In fact, the Wall Street Journal reports that “Million Dollar Listing” agent Frederik Eklund sold the condo in just one day for its asking price of $6.95 million. As 6sqft noted last week when the loft at 195 Hudson Street hit the market, Frankel bought the four-bedroom spread in 2011 for just under $5 million, then spent $500,000 furnishing and renovating it. But when she and ex-husband Jason Hoppy decided to part ways, the apartment became the most contentious part of the divorce, resulting in a very public, four-year legal battle. With the home finally off her hands, the “Real Housewives of New York City” star and outspoken founder of the Skinny Girl empire told the Journal, “I’m glad that the real-estate gods were looking out for me saying, ‘let’s give her a break.’”

Frankel renovated the 3,300-square-foot corner unit–a process that was featured on her spinoff show “Bethenny Ever After”–with a contemporary vibe and luxurious details like a 180-bottle wine fridge (not surprising considering she sold her low-cal liquor brand to Jim Beam for $120 million), totally custom office (which made many an appearance on her various Bravo shows), and a decked-out closet/dressing room.

Throughout the home are nearly 12-foot ceilings, heroic columns, and hardwood floors. It also comes with a deeded private indoor parking spot.

Though Frankel notoriously referred to herself as “the richest homeless person in Manhattan” since she was hotel-hopping while Hoppy remained in the loft, she bought and renovated a $4.2 million Soho loft back in April 2015. She told the Journal that she also owns another Soho unit that functions as her office, as well as a home in the Hamptons.
