Noho has been home to many celebrities, including Gigi Hadid and Cynthia Nixon. It’s not unusual to run into a plethora of other celebrities who maintain apartments in nearby neighborhoods. Neither is it unusual to see filming and photoshoots in action when out for a stroll.
For decades, the style-conscious have looked to Cher for her home choices in glamorous locations from New York City to California and Hawaii; her artistic vision and related upscale decorating talent rivals her singing and showmanship.
Cher was the Silk Building penthouse’s first owner and later sold it to Russell Simmons for $1.6 million.
Britney Spears later bought the apartment - it was where she wrote the Grammy-winning song “Toxic” - and lived there for four years.
Britney combined two units to make up the current apartment with 3,785 square feet and four bedrooms.
Keith Richards also once lived in the building where he had two floors and a recording studio.
Some of the penthouse’s best features include the tall ceilings, 400-square-foot outdoor terrace, fully operational wood fireplaces, and the wet bar in the primary suite.
A fifth bedroom could be added by repurposing the rooftop den with a bath that opens to the large terrace with views over Greenwich Village and the Empire State Building.
The kitchen is styled up-to-the-minute and bathrooms are upgraded with book-matched marble. Cher would definitely approve!
The listing agent is Ian Slater with Compass located in Midtown Manhattan.
