Whoopi Goldberg’s SoHo loft is back on the market for a cool $3.99 million. SoHo’s premium turf, playfully named after London’s famous shopping district and noted for its elaborate cast-iron architecture, was once inhabited by artists in the late 60’s but is now home to trendy young couples, wealthy singles, and ex-suburbanite empty-nesters. As a result of its transition, SoHo is now home to many of the same high-end boutiques found on Madison Avenue.
The expansive full-floor co-op unit, located in the heart of SoHo at 101 Wooster Street, features 3,600 square feet of space with a ValCucine kitchen, separate guest quarters, two and a half baths, a bar area and private master suite, in addition to exposed brick, sky-high ceilings, polished wood floors, massive mahogany windows, and a home entertainment system that includes a 58-inch, flat-screen plasma TV. The shabby chic décor also boasts a myriad of historical elements, vintage ceiling fans, custom doors, light fixtures and wall coverings. The property has been on the market since the end of June.
Goldberg, a long-time actress and current co-host of ABC’s The View, is also owner of a 7,039-square-foot house on Amalfi Drive in Los Angeles’ Pacific Palisades area, a 1,452-square-foot house in Berkeley, California, a 27.8-acre vacant parcel on Cream Hill Road in Cornwall, Connecticut, and a massive spread in Windham County, Vermont. Past winner of a Grammy, Academy Award, Emmy, and a Tony, she is also recognized for her humanitarian efforts on behalf of children, the homeless, human rights, education, substance abuse and AIDS. Among her many charitable activities, Goldberg is a Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations.
