Many a celebrity has lived in Soho's 76 Crosby Street, but the highest-profile residents for some time have been Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, whose interest in the building was said to be waning when they began quietly marketing their penthouse in summer 2010. It never sold the hush-hush way, so now it's time to get loud. A tipster points out the very fresh Adam Modlin listing for the penthouse, asking $24.5 million. Ripa and Consuelos did a two-year renovation of the property, for which they originally paid $9.5 million in 2005.
Courtesy of the brokerbabble, what interested home shoppers will find up top at 76 Crosby:
Tread on dark stained white oak flooring past seven windows into the grand eat-in-kitchen and dining room. A chef's dream appears filled with high end appliances, including a fully vented six burner Wolf stove with griddle, two Electrolux dishwashers and three Sub-Zero refrigerators, clad in Carrara marble and luxurious blue stone as well as custom milled wood and stainless cabinetry. The master suite is the ultimate retreat featuring two large walk-in closets and a tranquil marble master bath designed for the ultimate in relaxation. A deep air jet Jacuzzi soaking tub takes center stage while a warm steam shower plays a strong supporting role?.Head up to the second floor by way of a stair case that encircles a two-story Balinese wall and find even more room to spread out. A second stunning dining room opens up to a full outdoor kitchen. A media room offers a cozy haven lit by an enormous skylight and warmed by a gas fireplace. Another home office is tucked away for privacy. Swing open the French doors to reveal an incredible 2,500 square foot private roof deck with an outdoor fireplace and plenty of seating on which to unwind. Also on this floor, a home gym with access to a secluded grotto offering a soothing hot tub and outdoor shower. As an added convenience, the second floor also features a service kitchen (with dumbwaiter to the main kitchen) with wine storage, and an additional bedroom and full bath. Guess we know those Electrolux commercials are a genuine endorsement.
