Kravitz Penthouse Sale Finally Goes His Way

Call it a case of the seven year ditch -- that's how long it's taken Lenny Kravitz to unload his 6,000-square foot penthouse loft in Soho.

According to Curbed.com, the rocker first listed the condo in 2002 for $17 million. By 2004, it still hadn't sold, and he cut the price to $12.95 million. 2005? No sale yet. You'd think that the groovy five-bedroom, seven-bath pad with glass staircases and 3,000 square feet of outdoor space would appeal to anyone's inner rock star. Just ask Nicole Kidman and Denzel Washington, who each briefly rented the hipster Crosby Street hideaway.

Guess not. So in 2006, Kravitz took the lair from the market and spent a reported $1 million on renovations -- transforming the space from earthy, dark rocker lair to minimalist, sun-filled chic.

"It was a bit too me," he told New York Magazine about the prior look. "It was brown. It was like some Miles Davis–Isaac Hayes vibe going on up in there." According to the Corcoran listing, there was "no expense spared to create the most luxurious and important property in Soho and in all of downtown Manhattan."
