The Live With Kelly and Ryan host and the Riverdale star have been living in an extravagant penthouse on the Upper East Side of Manhattan since 2013. The longtime couple purchased the townhouse on East 76th Street for $27 million from fashion mogul Luca Orlandi and his wife, supermodel Oluchi Onweagba.
Kelly and Mark moved into the gorgeous 7,796 square-foot mansion after the TV star pointed out that their former home on Crosby Street in SoHo felt a little crowded. By the time they put the home on the market in 2015, it sold for $20 million, though the original asking price was $24.5 million.
According to the New York Daily News, the house Kelly and Mark live in was built in 1882 and features five bedrooms and six bathrooms. Aside from the large living spaces, the All My Children alums’ penthouse boasts two fireplaces, a trendy rooftop garden, an elevator and much more.
It seems Kelly and her handsome hubby — who tied the knot in 1996 and share kids Michael, Lola and Joaquin — couldn’t be more thrilled about their jawdropping digs. Whether she’s enjoying family dinners in their kitchen or pruning cherry trees in their garden with her children, Kelly loves giving fans glimpses inside her life at home.
Kelly and Mark’s penthouse is also the perfect place for romantic date nights. “Sultry roof dinner with my favorite,” the TV producer once captioned a photo via Instagram. In the snapshot, Kelly can be seen on the family’s rooftop, sitting in front of a fancy dining room table and overlooking the pretty NYC view.
Although Kelly and Mark have been spending a lot of time with Michael, Lola and Joaquin the past few months due to the coronavirus quarantine, that isn’t usually the case since their kiddos are growing up. Michael graduated from New York University in May 2020 and is starting his own life, while Lola is also currently a college student at her brother’s alma mater.
Luckily for Kelly and Mark, their youngest son, Joaquin, is still at home. The Emmy winner opened up about raising her kids and got candid about the realities of watching them grow up to be their own people. “In the blink of an eye, your kids grow up and suddenly you are begging them to spend time with you,” she previously joked with Us Weekly.
However, the Hollywood stars revealed how they’re going to combat empty nest syndrome when the time comes for Joaquin to move out. “We’re going to be totally naked,” Kelly hilariously told People in February 2020. “At all times. We are going to change the locks. People are like, ‘Oh, you’re gonna miss the kids.’ I’m like, ‘I don’t know, I wanna experiment with it. See how that goes.’”
With their huge penthouse, there’s no doubt Kelly and Mark will find ways to keep themselves busy!
