    Three-time Emmy winning actress Edie Falco has listed her modest 4-bedroom, 3-bath New York duplex for $5.5 million, according to our friend The Real Estalker. According to property records, Falco purchased the home in New York’s famous Tribeca neighborhood in July 2004 for $3.8 million.

    Famously known for her role as Carmela Soprano on HBO’s award winning series ‘The Sopranos,’ Falco has been most recently saving lives as the star of Showtime’s hit drama ‘Nurse Jackie.’ With those two hit roles under her belt, it’s no surprise that Falco is one of only two actresses to receive a  SAG, Golden Globe AND Emmy Award within the same year.

    For an actress with that much talent comes an extremely busy schedule. That being said, interior design may have taken the backseat, as this 3,000 square foot condo has quite a demur personality with minimal color and design throughout. This property, however, has great potential and offers amazing views off both its terracces on the first and second story.

    Hardwood floors run up and down the penthouse and 12-foot ceilings surrounded by various sky-high windows allow for a bright and spacious living area. The living room comes complete with a wood-burning fireplace attached to an exposed brick wall, welcoming a very urban, downtown ambiance. The open kitchen is newly renovated and features stainless steel appliances, as well as an island/bar eating area.

          Bethenny Frankel, the former “Real Housewives of New York” castmember, turned solo reality TV breakout star with “Bethenny Ever After,” turned alcohol and product-pushing millionare, is moving on up in the New York City real estate game with her recent purchase of a new $4,995,000 home in NYC’s TriBeCa neighborhood. According to the New York Post, Frankel is packing up her famous brood that includes husband Jason Hoppy and baby Bryn and moving to a bigger, fancier home at 195 Hudson Street. This is the same building where Jay-Z and Beyonce married in a super secret Penthouse ceremony a few years back. For those Frankel followers, Bethenny talked non-stop about moving to California on the last season of the reality series that also bears her name. Looks like they’ve decided to continue to live (and film!) in the Big Apple.

          While it’s likely this new abode will become the location for next season’s show and we’ll get the inside view, let’s dig into the on-paper details on her new home. It’s an enormous (not a word you hear very often in NYC real estate), corner unit with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 11’3 ceilings. 16 large windows line the walls, opening the home up to spectacular New York City views.  A decorative fireplace with Bateig Azul limestone is the centerpiece of the formal living/dining room, including wet bar with wine fridge, sink and ice-maker. Sunny east-facing kitchen features Pietra di Bedonia stone counter tops, glass tiles, Sub Zero refrigerator, Thermador professional stovetop, warming oven, and a Miele dishwasher.

          Situated in the Northeast corner is the media room complete with blackout shades, and “built-ins” housing state-of-the-art surround sound for the entire home. A library is attached to a sizeable master suite and incredible Chambord limestone clad master bath with maple cabinetry, dual sinks, Whirlpool soaking tub and separate standing steam shower. Two additional bedrooms and bathrooms are also finished in Chambord limestone/glass tile and glass mosaic tiles.  Bethenny’s new house also comes with another NYC rarity – its own deeded parking space in the building’s private garage. 195 Hudson has a total of 27 units on 8 floors and offers a full time doorman, private storage and a common roof deck.
