Tasteful Friends, Rachel Maddow lists Manhattan apartment

MSNBC political commentator Rachel Maddow and her partner, Susan Mikula, are listing their Manhattan digs for $2.35 million.

The 2,650-square-foot pad — which the host of “The Rachel Maddow Show” purchased for $1.25 million from REM frontman Michael Stipe in 2010 — is on the West Village’s charming Jane Street. It’s since been renovated and restored.

Brown Harris Stevens broker Mary Vetri has posted a video tour of the two-bedroom, 1½-bathroom co-op, complete with easy listening Muzak, so Maddow fans can get a glimpse of what her lifestyle is like.

All personal touches, however, seem to have been removed; the home is staged, per the listing.

The building, which dates to 1898, was a paper warehouse. It faces a charming cobblestone street, and original details abound inside, from wood columns and exposed brick to a large wood-burning fireplace — along with new, modern details like custom cabinets and hickory wood floors.

Does she plan on staying in Massachusetts ?

by Anonymousreply 210/13/2020

I wonder why she's selling.

by Anonymousreply 310/13/2020

The windows are surprisingly unappealing and generic. But Jane Street is a fabulous location. One of my favorite streets in NYC.

Sterile, with zero appeal.

Well if Democrats win the Presidency, the Senate and the House, which look possible, she won't have much of a show any longer. She can retire and fish everyday.

I wouldn't be surprised if she's been stalked and gotten death threats over the years.

"Sterile, with zero appeal."

Just like Rachel, no?

by Anonymousreply 810/13/2020

Ugh no appeal apart from the location.

I imagine she's bought something larger.

by Anonymousreply 910/13/2020

I'm sure this is just the place she uses during the week. On weekends she usually heads back up north. It's not very big and she probably figures now might be a good time to move up to a bigger place.

by Anonymousreply 1010/13/2020

R5 is right - "sterile with no appeal" pretty much sums it up. A few nice rugs, thats about it.

But like most apartments it could be made nice with a total makeover I guess

How sad looking. Isn't she a big name on TV? What is MSNBC paying it's hosts? Hannity pulls in $30 million a year. What's Maddow making?

by Anonymousreply 1310/13/2020

People, they just said in the article the home is staged. Potential buyers do not want to see your tacky junk.

by Anonymousreply 1410/13/2020

Feels smaller than 2650 sq ft.

by Anonymousreply 1510/13/2020

It's quite small so it's probably was the place she crashes in during the week.

by Anonymousreply 1610/13/2020

No shit.

by Anonymousreply 1710/13/2020

Seriously, she is in talks to replace Ellen. Seriously.

R3, do you mean the mail-in test said you were fine but you weren't?

Also, I'm scared of going under anesthesia. Has anyone here done a colonoscopy while awake?

by Anonymousreply 1910/13/2020

If I were you r19, I would seek a second opinion.

Rachel's residence when she isn't working is in Cummington, Massachusetts

And "not very big"? 2650 sq ft. is a large space for Manhattan.

by Anonymousreply 2210/13/2020

R19 You DON'T want to do that. I have a friend who claims she woke up during hers, but you don't want to be awake for it.

by Anonymousreply 2310/15/2020

R19 R20 and R23 seem to have gotten lost on the way to the colonoscopy thread, an excellent thread by the way. Very helpful and reassuring.

That's wrong. Another listing said it's 1325 sq. feet, which looks about right.

by Anonymousreply 2510/15/2020

Seems awfully tiny for either Michael Stipe or Rachel. He sold it for $1.2 million - which isn't exactly a ton of money, even in 2010 for Manhattan.


by Anonymousreply 2610/15/2020

From Stipe to Maddow to...

by Anonymousreply 2710/15/2020

I’m surprised she’s still with her partner. I thought the partner looks so dowdy

What's with the wine glasses and the place settings on the dining room table? It's LESBIANS. All they need is a big jug of wine to be passed sensually back-and-forth between one another and a big bowl of hummus (no utensils necessary because those types just use their fingers sensually to eat, scooping it up with dried plantain chips).

1,460 square feet in the r1 link

She's moving-in with Mary Trump.

Jane Street is paved with Belgian blocks, not cobblestones.

I love Jane Street. It's perfectly located and really lovely.

No way would I paid $2.25M. An 8 ft wide bedroom sucks.

by Anonymousreply 35Last Wednesday at 7:00 PM

She did say not long ago on her show, that one day when she's no longer doing her show, she plans to travel the world and just have fun.

She Definitely has the $$$ to do it. She's been doing her show for over a decade now, she also has really successful NY times bestsellers and that means a lot of $$$. She's probably sitting on a $100 million dollar fortune. She's going to have a fun life after she ends her show, but I hope that's years away.

I really enjoy her show. But I absolutely can see her saying fuck it one day, and just quiting and walking away.

by Anonymousreply 36Last Wednesday at 7:14 PM

She’s selling to make $1M in profit and buy an apartment with a guest room that’s wider than 8 fucking feet.

by Anonymousreply 37Last Wednesday at 7:39 PM

I'm sure she'll be stepping down after the election one way or the other, I feel her boredom in the show, and I like her very much but she needs a new gig
