All the way back in August 2014, 6sqft featured the $5 million listing for this stylish co-op at 147 West 22nd Street in Chelsea, pointing out its trendy features such as a retractable garage-style glass door, massive open living space with wall-to-wall windows, and uber-contemporary kitchen. And as it turns out, the full-floor spread belonged to producer and director Steven Soderbergh, who’s best known for his work directing “Erin Brockovich,” “Traffic” (for which he won the Oscar), and “Ocean’s 11.” The Real Deal reports that he’s now finally found a buyer for the apartment, selling it for $4.8 million.
The pre-war loft is currently configured as a three-bedroom with a media room, but the listing offers alternate floorplans for the 4,000-square-foot space. Its interiors were renovated by by set design Philip Messina, who worked with Soderbergh on “Ocean’s 11” in 2011.
The open living/dining area has 40 feet of south-facing windows; off this space is the anodized aluminum retractable door that opens to one of the bedrooms. Other features include custom-stained oak floors, CitiQuiet windows, an LG washer/dryer, private key-locked elevator, basement storage, and access to the shared roof deck.
The kitchen was recently renovated and has a four-seat breakfast bar and wine storage.
In the back is the master suite; its en-suite bathroom is outfitted with Carrera marble, Zuma soaking tub and steam shower. Adjacent is the “pin-drop quiet” media room.”
As The Real Deal notes, Soderbergh bought an $8.5 million apartment in Tribeca’s 7 Harrison Street in 2015.
