The Noho penthouse Britney Spears called home nearly 20 years ago is on the market for $6,995,000. The four-level apartment is in the Silk Building, an early 20th-century factory-turned condominium building located at 14 East 4th Street. As first reported by the New York Post, the home has a celebrity-filled history, with Cher, Russell Simmons, and Keith Richards among the A-listers who once lived at this address.

The pop icon purchased the penthouse in 2002 for $3,000,000 and listed it two years later for $6,000,000. Spears finally sold the apartment in 2006 for $4,000,000. As 6sqft previously reported, the new buyers then listed the apartment in 2008 for $6,695,000. It was listed for $9,000,000 in 2015, $7,600,000 in 2016, and even briefly was on the rental market that year for $24,000/month.

Spears, who lived in the home for four years, combined apartments 1109 and 1110 to make the current four-level penthouse, which measures 3,785 square feet and has four bedrooms and four and a half baths. According to Compass, the real estate firm with the listing, Spears recorded the hit song “Toxic” while living here.

The first owner of the penthouse was Cher, who purchased the unit in the 1980s. As the New York Post reported, Cher turned an old greenhouse into a gym with an outdoor shower. She sold the home to Russell Simmons in 1990 for $1,600,000. It’s been reported Keith Richards also once resided in this unit.

Spanning the 10th, 11th, and 12th floors, the hard-to-come-by quadplex home features an open floor plan main level with 12-foot-tall ceilings and a large living and dining area with a burning fireplace. The chef’s kitchen is well equipped with SubZero, KitchenAid, and Viking appliances. A separate laundry room is also on this floor.

On the top level–one floor up from the living space–is a den that can easily become a fifth bedroom. An outdoor terrace boasts views of the Empire State Building.

Find the bedrooms on floors 10 and 11, with the primary bedroom located on the lower level. The massive main suite has an en-suite marble bath, lots of closet space, a wet bar, and a wood-burning fireplace.
