Patrick McEnroe is looking to give up his home court advantage.
The tennis ace — younger brother to John McEnroe — and his wife, the actress Melissa Errico, are putting their sprawling loft at the Mercer House on the market for just under $8.5 million.
The couple paid just under $5 million for the co-op pad in 2014, property records show, and then spent two years gut renovating the space. The 4,000-square-foot duplex — located at 250 Mercer Street in Greenwich Village – has a loft-like design featuring a great room with 12-foot ceilings, a chef’s kitchen, as well as five bedrooms and five bathrooms, including a master bath with a steam shower and soaking tub.
The asking price works out to just over $2,100 per foot.
Douglas Elliman’s Tal Alexander, Oren Alexander and David Dubin have the listing. “”You’ll be hard-pressed to find a 5- bedroom, 5-bath home that is completely turn-key with these kinds of views and light,” at this price point, Tal Alexander said.
Built in 1890 as a cast iron factory, Mercer House was converted into a rental building in 1979. The building went co-op in 1986.
Before moving to Mercer House, McEnroe and Errico owned a condo at 285 Lafayette Street in Nolita. They sold that condo for $4.99 million in 2014.
