A loft-like triplex penthouse within the cast-iron Soho building, 421 Broome, where late actor Heath Ledger once lived, has made its way to the market asking a whopping $65 million. Back in 2011, the unit sold for just $17 million and after embarking on a years-long renovation project, the new owners have decided to part ways with the home.
The New York Times reports that owners David Matlin, a distressed asset investor, and his wife, Lisa Matlin, spent more than four years working to transform the 8,000-square-foot “vertical mansion“ into their dream home. This included a gut renovation helmed by Roman and Williams that welcomed in new oak floors, a black marble staircase from Chesney’s, a kitchen with honed black granite from Germany, bathrooms doused in Italian marble, and steel-framed doors and and skylights from an industrial-chic aesthetic.
But after all of this work was complete, the couple decided that the home was just too much space.
Other notable highlights here include private elevator access to the living areas, 15-foot ceilings, arched windows, wood-burning fireplaces, French doors, three skylights, more than 20 custom closets, a fitness room, and an impressive 3,700 square feet of outdoor space in the form of multiple terraces that are well-equipped for entertaining and even include a jacuzzi.
