Noted child psychiatrist David Shaffer has listed his top-floor loft in Soho for $5.995 million, the Observer reports. Shaffer also happens to be the ex-husband of Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, and the couple was married for 15 years before divorcing in 1999. Shaffer's three-bedroom pad in Soho is spread out over a massive 3,000 square feet of space, has large windows throughout the unit, and eight skylights as well.
Shaffer purchased the property in 2012 for $4.3 million, according to the Observer, and is now seeking a profit of close to $1.7 million. Some of the other standout features of his Soho loft include 11-foot high ceilings, hardwood floors, and cast iron columns. The unit also comes with a chef's kitchen, an artist studio, and a library.
Though perhaps most famous for being Wintour's ex, Shaffer is a celebrated figure in the field of psychiatry. He currently teaches child psychiatry at Columbia University, and is the chief of pediatric psychiatry at New York Presbyterian Hospital.
Some of the other former famous apartment owners in the building included artist James Rizzi.
