After six years living in this lovely pre-war condo, Bob Harper, beloved personal trainer, fitness guru and host of NBC’s The Biggest Loser, has listed his home for sale.

Bob purchased the apartment back in 2015 for $1.875 million and has now brought it to market, asking $2.295 million for his character-filled pad.

Since moving in, Bob has updated the one-bed, two-bath property extensively to achieve the chic, modern interiors and stunning finishes we see today. This included darkening the hardwood floors, renovating the open plan kitchen, and installing custom lighting and sound system throughout the apartment.

What really makes this condo stand out, (aside from the stunning black and white decor scheme, courtesy of best friend and designer Cristi Conaway) is its distinctive luxury loft aesthetic made up of exposed brick walls, dark wood beams and tons of natural light!

The quintessential Manhattan home for art lovers & foodies

Listed with Ian Slater of Compass, this one-bedroom slice of real estate heaven sits right in the heart of Chelsea. It’s one of Manhattan’s most sought after neighborhoods and is perfect for art lovers with over 200 galleries in the area.

Chelsea also boasts countless world-class bars and restaurants as well as New York institutions like the High Line and Chelsea Market. This area is also revered for having some of the most stunningly beautiful architecture in all of New York City.

A space to unwind, cook, and entertain

When it comes to the crowning features of this undeniably trendy pre-war property, it’s honestly hard to narrow them down. Especially since the apartment offers so many enviable additions.

Firstly, it draws you in with its exposed brick walls, dark wood beams, and moody hardwood floors throughout the living space and into the bedroom.

These features instantly exude stylish Manhattan loft vibes, making it hard to believe you’re actually inside a boutique condominium.

This continues into the kitchen which has been updated with custom shelving, chef’s appliances, and the most beautifully impactful black-and-white stone backsplash. Even the storage spaces have been converted into seriously stylish (and unendingly practical) California closets with custom doors.

Overall, Bob Harper’s condo is a good size at 1,091 square feet but, if you need a little extra room, you can always pop up to the shared roof deck which the owner of this home will have full access to. Bliss!

This fun pad seems great for entertaining thanks to its spacious high-ceilings, oversized dining area, and open plan kitchen/living room layout.

And don’t get us started on those chic, south-facing black framed windows allowing the natural light to stream in from dusk ‘til dawn.
