A Chic SoHo Loft Owned by Sela Ward Returns to the Market

The Four Percent


The actress Sela Ward is selling her SoHo pied-à-terre, an expansive prewar loft on a quiet, cobblestone block that she bought more than four years ago and renovated into a comfortable and chic urban retreat.

The roughly 2,400-square-foot apartment is on the second floor of 16 Crosby Street, between Howard and Grand Streets, in the SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District. The five-story former factory, built in 1877, has 12 co-op units.

Ms. Ward, a two-time Emmy Award winner, and her husband, the entrepreneur Howard Sherman, who have their main residence in Meridian, Miss., are listing the loft for $5.795 million; monthly maintenance is $900.

Ms. Ward, who is also an artist and whose bold paintings hang in the apartment, said she had help with the design, working alongside Ann Carter, a Mississippi designer, and Warren Freyer, of Freyer Collaborative Architects, in the financial district.

“We just created different spaces that weren’t there,” Ms. Ward said. “This is like an art project for me.” With each new home, she added, “I have a canvas.”

The space is configured with two bedrooms and a media room that has a Murphy bed and automated curtains that convert it into a third bedroom. There are also two full bathrooms, a half bathroom and a laundry room.

The entry is through a 28-by-27-foot great room lined with 10-foot, east-facing windows. The large space has areas for lounging and dining, and includes the media room.

Off a gallery near the dining area is the primary bedroom suite, which contains a dressing room, walk-in closet and a large spalike bathroom with a separate soaking tub. A second bedroom and bathroom are on the south end of the apartment, along with the laundry room and powder room. The unit also comes with a 340-square-foot storage room in the building’s basement; it includes closets and two refrigerators, one for wine.

Contemporary furnishings can be found throughout the home, along with a bit of whimsy in the form of a wooden Ping-Pong table that converts into a dining table for dinner parties.
