Chalk it up to some expert staging or some really good taste in products, whatever the reason, Susan Sarandon’s drool-worthy real estate listing is worth a look for anyone who loves a good bathroom—complete with corresponding beauty products and awards—photo.

As listed by Sotheby’s and first reported on by The Wall Street Journal, the 73-year-old actress has put her duplex loft in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood on the market for a cool $7.9 million.

According to the listing, there’s 6,000 square feet, six bedrooms, five full baths, an in-room soaking tub, views of World Trade Tower to the Empire State building, and a private guest floor.

Susan Sarandon keeps her awards, including her Oscar for “Dead Man Walking,” in a bright blue-painted bathroom in her longtime New York City home.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ “I thought it was kind of funny to keep them in the bathroom,” said the actress, 73. “When people come out of the bathroom, I expect them to be laughing but they don’t say a thing. Maybe they think I’m taking it seriously.”⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ A native New Yorker, Ms. Sarandon has lived in the six-bedroom Chelsea duplex since 1991, when she bought it with former partner, the actor Tim Robbins. The loft has been her sanctuary, she said, and even has the family’s handprints embedded in a pillar by the entrance. But now she’s putting the home on the market for $7.9 million.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ The actress, who took full ownership of the apartment in 2011 following her split with Mr. Robbins, said she’s “heartbroken” to sell the six-bedroom co-op, but her children have moved out and it is too large for her needs. She is downsizing to a smaller apartment nearby, she said, and while she has been spending time outside the city amid the coronavirus pandemic, she has no plans to leave the city permanently.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ “I’ve always been a New Yorker and I’ll continue to be a New Yorker,” said Ms. Sarandon, who grew up in Queens.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ 📸: EITAN GAMLIELY/SOTHEBY'S INTERNATIONAL REALTY⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ #actress #bathroom #celebrityrealestate #chelsea #chelseanyc #film #loft #luxuryhomes #luxuryrealestate #manhattan #manhattanrealestate #movies #oscar #nyc #susansarandon

Besides what the realtors refer to as the “Academy Award bath”— a cobalt-blue painted room where Sarandon keeps all of the awards (including her Oscar for Dead Man Walking) she’s earned over the course of her career, there’s also some enviable beauty products that make the pictures.

“I thought it was kind of funny to keep them in the bathroom,” Sarandon shared with WSJ. “When people come out of the bathroom, I expect them to be laughing but they don’t say a thing. Maybe they think I’m taking it seriously.”

From what we can make out: The shower is home to what appears to be a body brush and cult-favorite Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish Exfoliator ($39), while the freestanding tub plays host to a mix of Aesop products.

Update: Designer Yael Weiss, who staged the space, confirms she used a mix of products from Byredo, Grown Alchemist, Aesop, Apotheke and Fresh—which she loves in particular because “their soaps are packaged so prettily!”
