A Soho loft, complete with exposed brick walls, an open floor plan, and arched windows? Sounds like a dream… and one that will cost you a pretty penny. The price? $4.425 million—which is what Fargo star Kirsten Dunst just sold her 2,200-square-foot home for. The actress first bought the cool-girl penthouse in 2007 for $3 million. Douglas Elliman held the listing, while Laura Weinkam from Corcoran represented the buyers.
The new owners might not have matched Dunst’s initial listing price of $5 million, per Curbed, but they sure got their money’s worth if it’s status they’re after: The building has been home to several high-profile names, including R.E.M frontman Michael Stipe and actor Casey Affleck.
The top-floor unit isn’t too shabby either. With a private elevator entry and features like wide-plank hardwood floors, it’s a perfect mix of modern amenities and old-school Soho style. Oversized arched windows highlight the architecture of the building and allow for some pretty stellar river views.
While the decor is likely to be staged, we like to think Dunst had a hand in a few of the design features, like the recently renovated kitchen, which features deep teal cabinetry, stainless steel fixtures, marble backsplash, and open shelving. The open floor plan allows the kitchen to blend into the dining room and living room, giving the new owners plenty of space to host some seriously fun parties.
The entrance to the loft features a small nook that doubles as a library: Built-in bookcases and French doors add a sophisticated feel to the already stylish abode.
The recently renovated master bathroom is what Pinterest dreams are made of, and includes a vintage clawfoot bathtub and custom mosaic tiles.
As for the bedroom? It’s every bit as chic as you’d expect the it-girl’s private quarters to be, and there’s a huge walk-in closet to boot.
We can’t imagine why you would sell this sophisticated piece of NYC real estate (Dunst has reportedly been renting the space out for $12,500 as early as 2014), but one thing’s for sure: The new owners are very, very lucky.
