Bobby Flay has finally found a renter for his duplex in the celeb-studded Chelsea Mercantile building, the Post reports. The celebrity chef put the 3,256-square-foot digs on the market in October following a split with now ex-wife actress Stephanie March of Law & Order fame.
In addition to listing the 8th- and 9th-floor duplex as a $22,500/month rental, Flay listed the apartment on the sales market for just shy of $8 million in October 2015. Although the listing didn’t shy away from calling out its "PROFESSIONAL CHEF" owner, the apartment’s ask still hit the chopping block in May when it was reduced by $1 million to $6.95 million.
The duplex was created by combining two apartments at 252 Seventh Avenue, and includes a billiards room, built-in bookshelves, industrial details like exposed beams and a tin ceiling, and a showy kitchen meriting a celebrity chef owner. The apartment’s interiors were designed by MG & Company, who have teamed up with Flay on a few of his restaurants.
