Susan Sarandon Lists Her Knockout Chelsea Duplex for $7.9M

With dramatic city views and over 6,000 square feet of living space, this loft is award-winning in its own right.

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.

The home is accessed via an elevator that opens to a private gallery foyer and then the spectacular living space.

A full-height mirror along one wall makes the already expansive living area feel extra spacious. 

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.

A library sits just off the light-filled living room. 

The library features built-in bookshelves and beautiful hardwood floors.

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.

A dramatic staircase doubles as "audience seating for the Oscar winner’s children’s performances and celebrity dance recitals," according to the listing. The curved staircase leads to a den with a wood-burning fireplace and bookshelves. 

The den’s fireplace is surrounded by wood paneling. 

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. 

Oversized windows in the lounge area perfectly frame the NYC skyline—complete with a view of the Empire State Building.

Steps from the lounge area lead up to the dining room.

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. 

The dining room is just off the airy, open kitchen.

The "Academy Award Bath" is a cobalt-blue bathroom where the Academy Award–winning actress keeps her Oscar for Dead Man Walking, alongside other memorabilia. The gold record commemorates her starring role in The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

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.

The main bedroom has large French doors that open to the lounge.

The bedroom also has a corner carved out for a bathtub.

The en suite bathroom has a shower and a large window.

Sarandon and her former partner Tim Robbins merged two units and connected them with a staircase to create the extra-large living space.

The lower level has a kitchen and a spacious, sunlit family room.

There is a second, more casual dining area off the airy, open kitchen.

A large, additional bedroom has its own reading nook/office space.

This bedroom has ample storage, room for a deck, and French doors leading to the terrace.

A built-in loft bed and lots of storage space make this bedroom stand out. 

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.
