The Emmy Award-winning actress, Sela Ward, is selling her 2,400-square-foot apartment, which is hidden amid a nineteenth-century factory among the cobbles of Soho. The loft, which overlooks the urban neighborhood of the concrete jungle, is a specious shrine to contemporary art, tropical plants, and rainbow-kissed decor.

Sela Ward purchased the apartment, located at 16 Crosby Street, along with her husband Howard Sherman, for $4.2 million in 2016. The apartment, which the couple has completely renovated, is now listed for $5.795 million with Mark Schoenfeld and Joseph Pullen of The Corcoran Group, New York.

The apartment epitomizes Soho sophistication, complete with 14-foot ceilings, cast-iron columns, and white-washed exposed brick. The esteemed actress, producer, and actor also injected chic personal touches, including a marble- glazed kitchen, French doors, and a stylish glass-enclosed mezzanine. 

The loft also boasts 10ft east-facing windows that frame the most stylish district of the city.

Perhaps the most striking centerpiece of the apartment is its 27x28-foot living room, which will undoubtedly play host to style-infused parties throughout the night in the city that never sleeps. 

Beyond the heart of the property are three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and a gallery with space for a coffee bar and 50-bottle wine fridge.

The en-suite bathroom also resembles a spa, with a deep soaking tub where you can wash away the hustle of Downtown Manhattan.

Future owners can indulge in an array of New York staples beyond the haven of this converted factory space, including Bloomingdales and the widely admired eateries of Little Italy. Really, what more could you want?

Where does Sela Ward live now?  

According to the New York Times, Sela Ward and her husband do not plan on moving far. In fact, they are expected to remain in New York but are looking for an even bigger apartment that is potentially closer to Central Park. Further to this, the couple owns properties across the US, including in Florida, Los Angeles, and her hometown, Meridian, Mississippi.
