Tennis titans Venus and Serena Williams just may have yet another possible career to dive into when their playing days are over after recently selling their massive loft in New York City’s Garment District for a whopping $2.1 million.
Designed by the same architectural company that designed Bloomingdales and Saks, the 1,800-square-foot loft located on the 10th floor of the historic 12-story Wheeler Building was sold to the Williams sister in 2005 for $1.3 million. Sources say the sprawling space features 11.5 foot ceilings, honey-toned oak floors, and an all-white kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances and seven massive windows overlooking the city with four of the windows along the 85-foot-long east wall. Monthly maintenance for the unit runs just over $3200.
Former New Jersey Secretary of State Nina Mitchell Wells bought the property along with her high-profile attorney husband, Ted Wells Jr. Some of Wells Jr.’s more well-known cases include being selected by the NFL to investigate the New England Patriots and their “Deflategate” debacle and handling former New York governor Eliot Spitzer’s prostitution scandal.
Despite unloading their swanky New York City digs, the sisters have plenty of other spacious properties in which to lay their heads. They share an extravagant 9,000-square-foot mansion in the exclusive Palm Beach Gardens section of Florida and own separate properties in Florida, California and Paris.
