Meg Ryan’s 4,100-square-foot apartment at 84 Mercer Street in Soho has been officially scooped up for $9.9M, LLNYC reveals. 6sqft previously reported that the actress had listed the full-floor home–which she bought from fellow actor Hank Azaria for $8 million in 2014–for $10.9 million back in February of this year. After a designer gut renovation and a spread in Architectural Digest, the three-bedroom home didn’t stay on the market long—it went into contract just three months after Ryan listed it.
84 Mercer Street
Back in 2014, actress Meg Ryan dropped $8 million on a Soho loft previously owned by actor Hank Azaria. Now, after a sweeping gut renovation by interior designer Monique Gibson and architect Joel Barkley—and a full spread cover story in Architectural Digest showing off every nook and cranny of the chic space—the Journal reports Ryan has put the home on the market for $10.9 million.
This live-work loft, currently home to a prominent art dealer and his a notably impressive art collection, was recently put on the market for $6.5 million. Located in the heart of SoHo at 84 Mercer Street, this galley-style home occupies a full floor that was gutted and rebuilt with the help of loft architect Todd Ernst. The building was first constructed in 1884, and in 1978 was declared a National Historic Landmark. The cast-iron structure features massive windows, 16′ ceilings, a private elevator, and a definitively cool interior style.
End of summer celebrity moves abound, and this latest closing sees Meg Ryan scooping up a gorgeous Soho pad from Hank Azaria for $8 million. The full-floor, 4,000 square foot loft at celebrity (and misfit) favorite 84 Mercer Street has previously been featured in Elle Decor and boasts three spacious bedrooms, three bathrooms, a media room, a bright and airy 50-foot atrium hall, a key-lock elevator, and a private gym—amongst many other luxuries. Azaria himself gave up downtown living back in May when he moved his family into a more cozy and quiet $9.2 million Central Park West pad.
It’s New York. We live in close proximity and have all had those annoying neighbors — the man that moves his furniture around in the middle of the night, the college students that blast electronic music, and the couple with the dog that never stops howling. It’s not every day, though, that you get neighbors operating a full-on filming studio out of their home, but that’s exactly what Chelsea residents accused interior designer Betsy Morgan and her husband Jonathan Cary of, according to the New York Post. It was reported that Morgan was illegally advertising her $6 million West 21st Street townhouse on numerous websites for film locations and photography shoots at the rate of $850 per day, the ruckus from which did not make neighbors happy.
The couple is now making headlines again by purchasing the city’s largest available simplex at 84 Mercer Street. The $4.5 million, 9,000-square-foot loft is definitely camera worthy with its original wooden beams and columns, huge open layout, and remarkable potential for displaying art, but let’s hope Ms. Morgan will not be bringing any outside cameras into her new pad.
