This penthouse was home to Cher, Russell Simmons and Keith Richards. It’s now looking for a new owner, but celebrity status isn’t a requirement. Millionaire status might be though, as the home is looking to fetch $6.995 million.

Star-studded tenants

Cher lived here in the ’80s, then passed on her posh pad to Def Jam Recordings co-founder Russell Simmons. Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards also lived here at a certain point, according to Compass, the real estate company that holds the listing.

A space fit for the stars

But it was Spears who left the biggest mark on the top floor luxury home. During her time living here, the singer combined two units into the current abode, which spans 3,785 sq. ft. across four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms.

$4 million penthouse

She purchased the condo back in 2002 and held on to it for four years before selling it in 2006 for $4 million. Spears was still living here in 2003 when she wrote her Grammy-winning song “Toxic.”

A killer location

Not long after parting ways with her condo, Britney moved to the West Coast, where she now lives in a beautiful Italian villa surrounded by 21 sprawling acres of private land in Thousand Oaks, California.

Celebrity residents aside, the penthouse has many other things going for it.

With a killer location (14 East 4th Street, also known as the Silk Building), it sits at the perfect nexus of downtown, in the center of Noho — a stone’s throw from the prime Village, Soho and Astor Place.

A private townhome

Spread on four levels, the penthouse is much like a private townhome, but with jetliner views north over the Village and beyond. And a big terrace to soak in those views.

Spanning 3,785 square feet, the home is currently configured as a four-bedroom but can easily be turned into a five-bedroom. With soaring ceilings that rise approximately 12 feet, the main floor has a generously sized living/dining room complete with wood-burning fireplace and a large chef’s kitchen.

Draw-dropping views

The next floor up is reserved for the den and outdoor terrace — which spreads approximately 400 feet on the exterior and comes with Empire State Building views — whereas the two lower levels host the bedrooms, two on each floor.

According to the listing, the master suite stands out with its sheer size and cool amenities. This includes a wood burning fireplace, generous closet space, and a wet bar, but also an en-suite, five-piece bath clad in Italian marble and tasos flooring.

The star-studded penthouse is listed for sale asking $6,995,000, with Ian Slater and Eduardo Martinez of Compass holding the listing.
