A rigorously renovated 8,000-square-foot loft in Manhattan’s hip SoHo neighborhood is selling for 25% off.

Originally asking $65 million, the triplex penthouse has gotten two price cuts in the past year-and-a-half, bringing its current asking price to $48.5 million.

The loft, which sits in the same building where the actor Heath Ledger lived before his death in 2008, was last sold in 2011 for $17 million, according to Curbed New York. The owners spent four years making gut renovations but ultimately decided it was too much space for them, Curbed reported.

“The penthouse at 421 Broome is truly incomparable,” J. Eric Becker, previously of Corcoran and now at Douglas Elliman, told Business Insider. “In all of my years in real estate, I have never seen such a stunning home, with incredible attention to detail and unmatched design sophistication.”

The property, previously listed by Corcoran and CORE Real Estate, is now listed by Douglas Elliman.

Take a look inside the updated luxury penthouse, which comes with six landscaped terraces and a hot tub.

The owners spent four years renovating the luxurious four-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom penthouse, which is in a “landmarked cast-iron condominium dating back to 1873,” according to the listing.


The building is on Broome Street in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood, which was once an industrial district.
