Soho Pad with ‘Ghost’-ly Past Returns to the Market as a $32,500/Month Rental
This pristine full-floor condo at 102 Prince Street has a lot to brag about. For starters, it’s newly renovated and stunning, landing a spot in Interiors magazine’s “Best of 2011” issue. But its biggest claim to fame is that the apartment above is where Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze shot their iconic pottery scene in Ghost. The only thing more brag-worthy would be if Whoopi Goldberg dropped by occasionally to tell the future tenants, “You in danger, girl!”
The unit sold for an impressive $13.8 million just this past March, netting the seller a $4.9 million profit (they had purchased it in March of 2013 for $8.9 million). The 2014 sale was the highest price anyone had paid for a non-penthouse unit in Soho. And now, after just six months, it’s back on the market as a $32,500/month rental.
Enter the 4,500-square-foot home from a private elevator and you’ll find a large gallery directing you to the living and dining room with 14-foot ceilings. This room immediately impresses with oversized windows illuminating gorgeous columns and a gas fireplace. A pool table, flat screen TV and designer dining for eight make this an ideal entertaining space.
Off the living room is a high-end chef’s kitchen with top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, a center island with wine cooler and built-in banquette seating. There’s also a mahogany library and a den/soccer shrine that can serve as a gym or playroom, with stairs to a lofted media room.
The private master suite is only accessible via the library or a hallway entrance to either his or her closet (there are two). And to take that privacy to another level, there are his and hers en suite bathrooms as well.
If you think you’ll be comfortable lounging in animal fur, you’ll be happy to know the condo is available fully furnished. Additional features include a state-of-the-art Lutron lighting system, central a/v and HVAC systems, and heated floors. There’s also 400 square feet of private storage in the basement. 102 Prince Street is smack dab in the middle of Soho, with galleries, restaurants and boutiques right around the corner. By the way, is “Unchained Melody” playing in anyone else’s head?
