‘The Real Housewives of New York City’ Star Bethenny Frankel Lists Luxury Loft in Tribeca (EXCLUSIVE)

SELLER: Bethenny Frankel
LOCATION: New York City, NY
PRICE: $6,950,000
SIZE: 3,600 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: With her rancorous and no-doubt exhausting and expensive four-year long divorce finally finalized over the summer, “The Real Housewives of New York City” star and booze mogul Bethenny Frankel has, we learned from Big Apple celebrity real estate snitch Chatty Charlie, listed the modern-minded loft-style apartment in New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood she once shared with ex-husband Jason Hoppy. The frequently outspoken and occasionally abrasive Bravolebrity bought the approximately 3,600-square-foot condo in August 2011 for not quite five million dollars and spent considerable resources and time on a full-scale renovation and customization. Alas, she lived there only a short time before she and Hoppy split after which she hopped around for a few years from high-end hotel to high-end hotel while he, much to her chagrin, remained in residence.

A long entrance gallery leads to a combination living and dining room that is certainly spacious and features built-in media equipment and a quartet of custom lit columns but, unfortunately for those who appreciate natural light, does not have any windows. Filtered light streams through from the adjoining kitchen and informal dining area that is sleekly outfitted with lacquered white cabinetry and, fortunately, flooded with natural light from enormous windows. Listing details show the corner condo, which includes a rare and coveted deeded private parking spot in the building’s on-site garage, is currently arranged with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Two guest/family bedrooms share a Jack ‘n’ Jill style bathroom and a privately positioned master suite incorporates a custom-fitted dressing room. A windowless room just off the entrance gallery, a potential fourth bedroom per listing details, was custom-designed for Frankel as a home office with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and built-in desks to accommodate several assistants.

Not surprisingly, the Skinnygirl founder selected Bravo TV’s sassy, high-kicking “Million Dollar Listing New York” star Fredrik Eklund and partner John Gomes at Douglas Elliman Real Estate to market the condo that carries property taxes and common charges that ring up to more than $6,600 per month.

The “Real Housewives of New York City” cast member who says she’s “distancing” herself from the show that made her famous after filming an emotionally grueling 8th season and is currently batting down rumors and reports her short-lived Sirius XM radio show was canceled due to diva-like behavior, currently resides in a Soho loft she purchased in September 2014 for $4.2 million. She additionally owns a multi-parcel mini-estate with a modestly sized and casually dressed but luxuriously appointed residence in Bridgehampton, NY, that our research suggests was acquired in two separate but contiguous transactions in late 2013 that totaled $2.65 million.
