SELLERS: Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo
LOCATION: New York City, NY
SIZE: 2,800 square feet, 1 bedroom, 2 bathrooms
YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Now that she’s got a bun in her itty-bitty catwalker oven, Namibian-born Victoria Secret model Behati Prinsloo and tatted-up Maroon 5 front man and “The Voice” judge Adam Levine have put their loft in the bustling heart of New York City’s Soho ‘hood up for grabs at $5.5 million. The unfairly pulchritudinous pair paid $4.5 million for the condo in August 2014, just a month after Cabo San Lucas wedding. Current listing details show the approximately 2,800-square-foot one-bedroom and two-bathroom spread, located in a classic, early 20th century cast iron building on a cobblestone street lined with designer boutiques, features refinished narrow gauge hardwood floors, exposed brick walls, half of a dozen cast-iron columns, old-school radiator heat and a new-fangled integrated air-conditioning system, and 13-foot silver-painted pressed tin ceiling.
A key-lock elevator opens directly into the banquet hall-sized main living space that stretches more than 63-feet long and is sparely but expensively furnished with a massive, midnight blue tufted sectional sofa on a jewel-toned Oriental rug, an antique (or antique-looking) pool table — not to mention a juke box and pinball machine, and a no-doubt authentic hickory and black walnut George Nakashima dining set that this property gossip can assure the children cost as much if not substantially more than a brand-new E-Class Mercedes. The open kitchen isn’t particularly big but it is well outfitted with black granite counter tops, maple cabinetry, top-grade stainless steel appliances, and an integrated, four-stool snack counter. The loft’s lone bedroom, furnished with little more than a photogenically beat-up Louis Vuitton trunk, a full-length mirror, a probably original and profoundly pricey Flagline Halyard chair by Hans Wegner, and a king-sized Art Deco bed with luscious leather tufting on the headboard. There’s a roomy walk-in closet and a bidet-equipped bathroom with marble sheathed walls and floor.
Back on the left coast, where the soon-to-be-parents were spotted house hunting last month in L.A.’s fancy-pants and family-friendly Pacific Palisades community, Mister Levine continues to own a 6,500-plus-square-foot residence on more than 3.6 hilltop acres inside a little heralded gated enclave in the upper reaches of Benedict Canyon in Beverly Hills that he picked up in October 2013 for $4.83 million.
