He may be a shaggy-haired guy with a guitar from New Jersey, but Jon Bon Jovi’s home is everything you’d expect of an upscale Manhattan penthouse. The rock star purchased the home in 2007 and reportedly invested millions in renovations.
Now, the swanky SoHo duplex is on the market for $42 million.
Located at 158 Mercer St., New York, N.Y. 10012, the 7,452-square-foot home has five bedrooms and 5.5 baths. According to the listing provided by The Corcoran Group’s Deborah Grubman, “The journey begins when you step off the elevator into the lower-level foyer.”
A large great room with posh furnishings, including a sparkling chandelier and glass dining room table, set the tone for the space. The journey continues into a modern chef’s kitchen and up a sleek staircase into spacious bedrooms and three landscaped terraces.
But perhaps the most notable feature of the space is glass. Surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows, the penthouse provides 360-degree views of SoHo and beyond.
“This one-of-a-kind apartment is for the discerning buyer who can appreciate fine craftsmanship and all the modern conveniences,” Grubman writes in the for-sale listing.
Bon Jovi invested heavily in the penthouse, which he reportedly purchased for $24 million. But the singer-songwriter is more focused on spending time with his family and opening up about his 19-year-old daughter, Stephanie Bongiovi, who overdosed on heroin last November.
Bon Jovi continues to be a music machine, cranking out catchy songs on his band’s twelfth album, “What About Now.” He’s also made recent TV appearances, performing live on “American Idol,” even though he reportedly turned down the opportunity to judge this season’s singing competition.
Bon Jovi’s SoHo suite is available for an estimated $151,029 a month, according to Zillow’s mortgage calculator.
