Just three months after listing her massive Chelsea duplex for $7.9 million, Academy Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon has sold her long-time home for its full asking price. Located at 147 West 15th Street, the 6,000-square-foot co-op is spread over two floors and has six bedrooms, four exposures including views of the World Trade Center and Empire State Building, and an outdoor terrace and balcony. Over the summer, Queens-native Sarandon told the Wall Street Journal that she isn’t leaving the city just downsizing to a smaller apartment in the area. “I’ve always been a New Yorker and I’ll continue to be a New Yorker,” she said.

Sarandon and her then-partner Tim Robbins bought two units in the building in 1991, and then added a staircase and combined them. When they split up in 2011, Sarandon paid Robbins $3.2 million to take full ownership of the home.

The entrance is on the eighth-floor upper level, where a key-locked elevator opens into a foyer, which then leads into the incredible living room. The curved staircase, according to the listing, served as “audience seating” for Sarandon’s children’s “performances and celebrity dance recitals.”

Off the living room is a corner library with built-in shelving and more southern views.

The stairs in the living room lead to a cozy den complete with a wood-burning fireplace.

From there, you’ll find the open kitchen/dining room, off which is a casual, sunken lounge with northern views.

The master suite has a private balcony, a luxurious soaking tub overlooking the Empire State Building, an en-suite bathroom, and a huge dressing room. Also on this level are an office, a laundry room, and two more bathrooms.

A custom staircase leads down to the seventh floor, which is set up entirely as a guest suite, with another kitchen/dining room and family room. A 60-foot-long terrace stretches the entire length of the home.

There are three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and lots of storage on this lower level.

Of note is the cobalt-blue bathroom that’s dubbed the “Academy Award” bath, according to the WSJ, as it displays Sarandon’s awards, including her Oscar for Dead Man Walking.

According to the Observer, Sarandon had quarantined in the apartment for the first few months of the pandemic and then left for her home upstate in Pound Ridge to be with her children.
