Academy Award–winner Susan Sarandon is selling her New York City loft—and the gorgeous, light-filled duplex is a stunner. Located in a renovated 1920s industrial building in Chelsea, the six-bedroom loft offers 6,000 square feet of living space, high ceilings, white gallery walls, a wood-burning fireplace, a 43-foot outdoor terrace, and breathtaking views of the Empire State Building and One World Trade Center.
Sarandon originally purchased the eighth-floor duplex in the ’90s with her partner at the time, Tim Robbins. To create the extra-large living space, the couple merged two units (on the seventh and eighth floor), connecting them with a beautifully designed custom staircase.
The upper level features an open floor plan with a palatial living room and a dramatic, curved staircase that leads up to a den with a wood-burning fireplace. The home’s library could serve as a stunning office or additional bedroom, and an open kitchen overlooks a large dining area and a lounge.
The light-filled primary bedroom has a soaking tub and an en suite bath. The lower level holds private guest quarters (with a separate, key-locked elevator entry) and three more bedrooms, a family room, an open kitchen, two baths, storage galore, and the aforementioned 43-foot terrace with a view of the Empire State Building.
Another highlight is the cobalt-blue "Academy Award Bath," where the star keeps the Oscar she won for Dead Man Walking alongside other memorabilia chronicling her illustrious Hollywood career.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Sarandon, who has spent much of the pandemic outside the city, is selling because the unit is more than she needs, and she will be downsizing to a smaller apartment nearby.
147 W 15th Street 8/7N is currently listed for $7,900,000 by Nikki Field and Mara Flash Blum of Sotheby’s International Realty.
