37B Crosby Street, great room, soho, living room, co-op

This two-bedroom, two-bathroom loft comes from a historic building at 37B Crosby Street, between Broome and Grand in Soho, that’s been converted to a cooperative. Like many other downtown loft apartments, it is distinguished by its massive “great room”–an open living room, dining room and kitchen. Unlike the traditional loft, the bedrooms are built out in separate spaces.

The design is completely modern and refined, paired with those great old loft details like high ceilings, big windows and exposed brick (there are even two working fireplaces throughout the apartment). It’s all up for sale asking a cool $2 million. The apartment last sold in 2008 for $1.495 million.

533 Canal Street, Michael Stipe

Michael Stipe, former lead singer for the 80’s rock band R.E.M., has sold his duplex penthouse at 533 Canal Street in Soho for $9.6 million, according to city records released today. Stipe listed the co-op in June 2012 for $10.95 million, after purchasing it in 2007 for $5.75 million while it was being renovating. The unit has an impressive celebrity past; Stipe bought it from Ben Affleck’s younger brother Casey, who bought it from “Good Will Hunting” director Gus Van Sant. And recently actress Kirsten Dunst put her penthouse in the building on the rental market for $12,500 a month.

The three-bedroom penthouse has a light-filled central atrium, 2,500-square-foot terrace with Hudson River views, and an industrial-style kitchen designed by Mario Batali. Stipe had said that he was looking to move further downtown to a loft/work space for himself and his partner.

158 Mercer Street, Hedi Klum, Jon Bon Jovi

Looks like rocker Jon Bon Jovi may be saying “Auf Wiedersehen” to his Soho penthouse at 158 Mercer Street’s New Museum Building, as supermodel Heidi Klum was seen checking out the $37.5 million digs. The six-bedroom, 7,452-square-foot duplex is chock full of luxurious amenities such as wood-burning fireplaces, landscaped terraces, screening and projection rooms, and living and kitchen areas on both floors. Klum was scoping out several downtown homes, but it’s not going to be easy to pass up this superb penthouse.

533 Canal Street, Kirsten Dunst, Soho real estate

With her Spider Man days behind her, Kirsten Dunst has put her Soho penthouse on the rental market for $12,500 a month, according to NYDN. She bought the two-bedroom apartment at 533 Canal Street for $3.09 million in 2007, citing that she needed a break from Los Angeles. Maybe she’s looking for a little more privacy now, as fellow celebs including Casey Affleck and director Gus Van Sant have also called the building home. The slightly quirky pad is available fully or partially furnished, which is a bonus since Dunst clearly has a good eye for comfortable furniture, vintage pieces, and industrial-chic decor.
