The internationally successful fashion designer Elie Tahari has just gone into contract on a gorgeous boutique condo in Nolita. According to the New York Post, Tahari bought the 1,151-square-foot apartment for one of his children because he is an admirer of the building’s designers, architectural firm Roman and Williams. The purchase price of $3.25 million was slightly above the asking price of $3.15 million.

Inside Elie Tahari’s Nolita Condo

This chic 1-bedroom/1.5-bath home, 211 Elizabeth St. #5S, is one of 15 units in the seven-story Roman and Williams building on the corner of Elizabeth and Prince streets. Other units in the building have sold for anywhere between $1.5M (for a 1-bed/1-bath) to $8.2M (for a 2-bed/2.5-bath penthouse).

This unit features huge windows with two exposures for maximum natural light. It also boasts elegant herringbone hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace, and a massive master suite with three closets — one of which is practically big enough to be a separate room. The foyer entry has a powder room for guests, and the kitchen opens to an adjacent dining area.

Building amenities include a gym, a bike room, and a common roof deck. The home also contains one of New York’s most-wanted amenities of all: an in-unit washer/dryer. Ryan Serhant of Nest Seekers — a star of Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing New York” and leader of the Serhant Team — was the listing agent.

More About Tahari’s New York–Area Real Estate

Elie Tahari’s children are certainly pretty lucky to receive gifts like this! But this downtown condo isn’t the designer’s only foray into New York real estate. He also owns a spectacular Hamptons estate in Sagaponack that has been on and off the market for the past couple years.

The 4,500-square-foot oceanfront home was most recently asking $39 million. But it’s no longer for sale and is now a hot commodity on the Hamptons rental market, asking a mere $1.1M for a full-year lease. The gorgeous home sits on 2.5 acres and includes 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, a 60-foot pool, and a sun deck with stairs leading down right to the beach. No surprise that a designer of Tahari’s stature would have such good taste!
