Lately we’ve noticed that many celebs are on the move and looking for new homes. We can officially add Kelly Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos to that list. But, we're also questioning why they would leave such a beautiful place behind?
According to the New York Daily News, the two have put their New York City loft on the market for a cool $24.5 million. The gorgeous home, located at 76 Crosby Street in the high-end Soho neighborhood, has five bedrooms, three bathrooms and an outdoor kitchen. Not to mention a skylight, amazing dark-oak floors and a magnificent floating staircase against a Balinese feature wall, which extends between the home's two floors.
Ripa herself decorated the home with low clean-lined furnishings, which highlight the soaring height and paneled ceilings. And with three kids in the house, she made sure there was plenty of seating in the kitchen with lots of built-in storage. The island, a dark contrast to the mostly white kitchen, has a vintage aesthetic that resembles a card catalog. (To learn how-to make your own island, head over to Apartment Therapy). There are also two Electrolux dishwashers, which is only natural considering Ripa is a spokeswoman for the company.
Curbed reports the couple bought the home in 2005 for a mere $9.5 million and have been trying to sell it secretly since 2010. The listing is with Modling Group and one of the brokers is Douglas Elliman's Raphael De Niro, whose father is actor Robert De Niro -- just a fun fact we thought we’d throw in there.
