Kelly Ripa Finds a Buyer for Her Renovated Soho Penthouse

May 9, 2014

Remember the story of the ugly duckling and how she grew up to be a beautiful swan? Well, imagine that happening and still having to sit on the market for over a year. That’s what happened to Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos’s masterfully renovated Soho loft at 76 Crosby Street.

Before we get into why this breathtaking hideaway sat on the market for so long, let’s take a moment to admire this 5BR/4.5BA beauty. As if 6,792 square feet of dark-stained white oak floors and 12-foot ceilings flooded with light isn’t enough, this place also features 2 media rooms, 2 home offices, and a playroom. So there’s plenty of room for work and play for the entire family.

There’s a gourmet eat-in kitchen with high-end appliances, Carrara marble, and exquisite blue stone. A marble master bathroom features a warm steam shower and a heated floor. A skylight in the living room bathes the room in even more light and they even threw in a 2-story Balinese wall in case you had any more breath to lose.

Oh, it doesn’t stop there. Let’s take a step outside on the 3,073-square-foot private roof deck with an outdoor fireplace. Now let’s punctuate that with a home gym, and while we’re at it, let’s add a touch of Hefner with a hot tub grotto and an outdoor shower.

How did this stunning penthouse stay on the market for over a year? Well, apparently it doesn’t fit into the neighborhood. According to the Observer, brokers felt a family apartment like this one belongs in Tribeca or the West Village. Soho lofts should be more… lofty. Another deterrent may have been that steep $24.5 million asking price. However, this story has a happy ending as the family friendly pad found a buyer who must be tired of the bachelor pad lifestyle and is apparently ready to settle down with the one you marry. So, the swan lives happily ever after, after all.
