Bella Hadid is a model who began her career in 2012. Her sister, Gigi, is also a model, as was their mother. Hadid has become extremely successful in the fashion industry and was voted as the Models.com Model of the Year in 2016. Although she was raised on a ranch in Santa Barbara, Bella Hadid moved to New York in 2014, two years after she began her modeling career. She initially made the move to study photography at the Parsons School of Design, and she had recently signed t IMG. She then dropped out of her course but intends to pursue photography in the future. Hadid was in an on-again-off-again relationship with The Weeknd, which finally came to an end in 2019. Just six months later, Hadid bought herself a new pad in New York. However, she has now decided to list the property, despite having it for under a year.
An Overview of Bella Hadid’s Penthouse
Bella Hadid bought her New York residence in June 2020 for $6.1 million. The duplex penthouse is in a historic building in the trendy SoHo district of Manhattan. The property attracts the rich and famous, and it was even the former home of Bella’s sister Gigi and her boyfriend Zayne Malik. Although the building was constructed in 1877 and was once a silk showroom, it was only converted into residential premises in 2016. Therefore, everything is new inside the building, although the developers retained some of the structure’s original features. Some of the original features include the high ceilings, large windows, and wood and cast-iron columns. The residential co-op has just six levels and 14 residential units. Therefore, it is the perfect place to live for those who want to live in an exclusive property in the city. Hadid’s duplex measures 2,569-square-feet, which is an impressive size for an apartment in Manhattan. Bella Hadid has now listed the sophisticated, two-bedroom, two-bathroom SoHo penthouse on the market for $6.5 million. Although the price is higher than Hadid paid for it last year, she is unlikely to make much profit from the sale due to the costs of selling.
Inside the SoHo Duplex
The main living space is on the lower floor of the duplex, and it is set up as a great room that incorporates a living area, a kitchen, a dining area, and a home office. It has an industrial-chic style, as there are sleek white walls, arched ceilings with exposed brickwork, wooden flooring, exposed ductwork, and cast-iron columns. There is also a metal staircase with wooden steps and glass sides leading to the upper level. One end of the great room is a devoted living space, with a wall-mounted television nestled into an in-built cabinet with shelving on either side and cupboards along the bottom. The living area is flooded with light, thanks to the oversized windows along one wall. At the other end of the great room, the space is divided into a kitchen and a dining area. The latter is nestled against the staircase and is large enough to accommodate an eight-seat dining suite. Three trendy light fittings hang above the dining area, and the layout of the light fixtures helps to define this space from the rest of the great room.
Opposite the dining room is the kitchen. Along one wall, there contemporary, gloss gray cabinets, a hob, and two small sections of marble countertops. The kitchen is separated from the dining room by a kitchen island with a sink, an oversized marble countertop, and breakfast bar stools. There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms in the apartment, both of which are on the upper level. The master suite is a large space that has the same vaulted ceilings with exposed brickwork as the living room. Although the bedroom’s oversized windows give the room plenty of light, they, unfortunately, overlook the neighboring property, which is the apartment’s one downfall. From the master bedroom, there is an ensuite and a walk-in closet. The master ensuite boasts a floating double sink, a huge mirror, bronze fixtures, and an oversized shower. In the walk-in closets, there are multiple clothes racks and a custom-built glass shoe cupboard.
The second bedroom is almost as spacious as the primary bedroom, although it does not have its own bathroom or a walk-in closet. Like the rest of the property, it has white walls, a wooden floor, and a vaulted ceiling with exposed brickwork and beams. An unusual feature of the guest bedroom is a built-in closet that does not have any doors. Despite the residential co-op being in a built-up area and the penthouse’s position at the top of the building, Bella Hadid’s property benefits from some outdoor space in the form of a private roof terrace, says Dirt.com. It means the new homeowner can spend time outdoors enjoying views of the Manhattan skyline. The rooftop terrace has stone paving, large outdoor settees and armchairs, and a substantial outdoor dining suite. It is lined with plants in stone troughs, and there are high wooden walls that will offer the new homeowner some privacy from neighboring properties while they are enjoying the outdoors.
Facilities in the Building and the Local Area
The residents of the building also have access to multiple services and amenities to make their lives easier and more enjoyable. Some of these include a bicycle room, a package room, and a staffed lobby. There is also a communal rooftop terrace for all the residents of the building to enjoy. The building is also in an excellent location for accessing the facilities, amenities, and leisure activities in the surrounding area. Little Italy, Tribeca, NoLita, and the West Village are all within walking distance of Bella Hadid’s Manhattan apartment. Therefore, there is plenty in the surrounding neighborhoods to keep the new homeowner entertained.
