From Luxury Listings NYC: Sculptor and current Luxury Listings NYC cover star Edwina Sandys has put her home on the market, a 6,500-square-foot loft on the corner of Broadway and Prince Street in Soho. Sandys – the granddaughter of Sir Winston Churchill — originally listed the full-floor duplex, located at 565 Broadway, back in September 2013 for $10.95 million, and it’s been on and off the market ever since.
Sandys and her husband, architect Richard Kaplan, are now asking $9.95 million for the five-bedroom, five-bathroom apartment, listing broker Gabrielle Frank of Douglas Elliman told LLNYC exclusively.
“It seemed that this was the right time,” Frank said. “We’ve gotten so much more interest based on the fantastic photos.” Sandys was not available for comment.
The home, which was the location of the original season of the “The Real World” in 1992, is famous for hosting society parties where the guest lists include notables such as the artist Christo, architects Richard Meier and Rafael Vinoly, Agapi Stassinopoulos, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Massimo Vignelli and Christine Ebersole.
The 1860s cast-iron building once contained the showrooms for Ball Black & Co., the leading New York City jeweler before Tiffany, and the unit’s 2,500-square-foot great room still retains the store’s white marble floors and Corinthian columns.
