Supermodel Petra Němcová first hit it big in 2003 when she appeared on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, but the very next year she made headlines for a very different reason when she survived the Indian Ocean tsunami after holding onto a palm tree branch for eight hours. This inspired her to found the Happy Hearts Fund, which rebuilds schools in areas hit by natural disaster. The nonprofit is headquartered in Hudson Square, so it makes sense that Němcová has been living nearby at 200 Chambers Street in Tribeca. She listed the striking corner unit, which has one of the building’s largest private terraces, for $3.5 million in 2016, but the Post now tells us that after a recent price chop to $2,995,000 it’s found a buyer.
The two-bedroom pad has 1,400 square feet of interior space, which includes a separate foyer area, chef’s kitchen, and open living/dining area. The corner location and floor-to-ceiling walls of windows provide incredible views over Chambers Street and out to the Hudson River.
The terrace is an additional 837 square feet and is accessible from both bedrooms. According to the listing, it can “easily handle gatherings with up to 50 guests.” It’s fully outfitted with water and electric and currently is configured with a barbecue, dining table, lounge chairs, and seasonal vegetable garden.
