If you dreamed of being on MTV’s The Real World in the ‘90s, we have great news: We can’t go back in time and cast you on the show, but you can buy the loft that was featured on the first-ever season in New York back in 1992.

The loft occupies a full floor in Prince Towers, which sits at the corner of Broadway and Prince Street in SoHo, just one block south of Houston Street. For a few months in the early ‘90s, it was the home of Norman, Julie, Becky, Kevin, Andre, Heather, and Eric—a.k.a. the cast of The Real World: New York. Funny enough, the listing hit the market on Tuesday, May 21—exactly 27 years to the day that the first episode aired on MTV. The asking price is $7.5 million.

Since its days serving as the Real World loft, the space has been the home and studio of British painter and sculptor Edwina Sandys (who is also Winston Churchill’s granddaughter). Listing agent Gabrielle Frank told Apartment Therapy over the phone that Sandys’ favorite color is red, and it shows—several walls are painted poppy red, and red art adorns the walls throughout.

The 6,500-square-foot loft has four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two powder rooms, a massive great room, an open kitchen with a butler’s pantry, a library, a studio space, and an art gallery. It boasts 17-foot double height exposed brick vault ceilings, 12-foot tall windows, Carrara marble floors, and cast-iron Corinthian columns.
