The two-bedroom loft condo formerly owned by “America’s Next Top Model” creative director Jay Manuel has just resurfaced on the market for $3,250,000. The Canadian TV presenter and author, who was also a host of “Canada’s Next Top Model,” bought the 2,269-square-foot home in the Chelsea Mercantile at 252 Seventh Avenue with his partner, Alton Johnson, in 2000; the couple sold the condo in 2011.

The four-building Chelsea Mercantile is the former headquarters of the National Cloak and Suit Company. Other celebrity residents have included Lance Bass, Katie Holmes, and Bobby Flay. Within, this modern loft home boasts classic 11-foot beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows, elevated by contemporary additions like Italian light fixtures and integrated speakers.

Past the foyer is a large open living, dining, and kitchen space. The Boffi-outfitted kitchen features two dining peninsulas, stainless steel countertops and backsplashes, and custom wenge wood and glass cabinets. Top-of-the-line Gaggenau, SubZero, and Miele appliances include a built-in coffee system.

The spacious primary bedroom has a bright and luxurious en-suite bath accented by French limestone finishes. The second bedroom boasts another en-suite bath and a huge walk-in closet. For added convenience, there’s a laundry room with a Miele washer/dryer.

A separate storage unit comes with the apartment. The pet-friendly Chelsea Mercantile offers 24-hour door attendants, concierge and valet service, on-site parking, a state-of-the-art gym, a children’s playroom, and a roof terrace with open city views–and there’s a Whole Foods Market in the building.
