Bethenny Frankel’s former New York home for $5 million
Bethenny Frankel’s old downtown digs are back on the market for $5 million.
The ‘Real Housewives of New York City’ star entrepreneur bought the unit, at 22 Mercer St., for $4.2 million in 2014 amid her divorce drama and custody battle with Jason Hoppy about their daughter, Bryn.
Frankel – who recently posted about vacationing in Italy with Bryn – then renovated the house and first put it up for sale in 2017 for $5.2million. She eventually sold it at a loss for $3.65 million in 2019, following a price drop and a broker swap.
While Frankel got her start in reality TV — first on the show “The Apprentice: Martha Stewart” before her “RHONY” years — she also dabbled in business and charity.
She launched BStrong, a disaster relief initiative in response to Hurricane Maria, which devastated Puerto Rico. This year, she raised $25 million after Russia invaded Ukraine to help the country’s refugees and those still there.
His 2,392 square foot former loft on the second floor is located in a cast iron, brick and marble loft-style building in Soho. It features two bedrooms, 2½ bathrooms, a wood-burning fireplace, and a small balcony — the only one of its kind in the building, the listing notes.
The home opens to an entry gallery that can be used to display artwork while also serving as a home office with storage and custom built-ins.
There is also a 25-foot-wide great room with 14-foot ceiling heights and three arched triple-glazed windows framed in mahogany. It is adjacent to an open chef’s kitchen with a very large pantry.
The master bedroom includes a custom walk-in closet and a marble bathroom with a soaking tub and glass steam shower. The second bedroom also has an en-suite bathroom. Both bedrooms have floor-to-ceiling windows and a view of a landscaped green wall.
The home also features refinished hardwood floors, soundproof windows, and a Sonos sound system with built-in speakers. The 16-unit boutique condo also has a common rooftop terrace.
The listing broker is Amy Mendizabal of Compass.
