Actress Scarlett Johansson has taken a loss on her duplex loft unit in Manhattan’s TriBeCa area, selling it for $1,898,000. The New York Observer’s “Manhattan Transfers” column today broke the story of Scarlett’s sale of her 1,300-square-foot unit, which is at 66 Leonard Street in TriBeCa. Johansson had listed the unit in May 2007 for $2,195,000, which was just 16 months after she had purchased it for $1,950,000 on January 30, 2006, according to public records. Johansson’s sale went to contract for March 2 and closed on April 17, according to city records. The deal was recorded on April 24. The Observer reported that the buyer is an investment banker who owns the unit next door and who plans to expand into Scarlett’s old space. Features in the unit include hand-painted Tuscan walls, double-height windows, Brazilian cherry wood floors, a master bath with a five-fixture shower and a “European pod-shaped soaking tub,” and a lofted bedroom that overlooks a 22-foot-high living room with a limestone fireplace, according to listing information. Other features include a chef’s kitchen with a SubZero refrigerator, a wine cooler, a Thermador 36-inch wide six-burner gas range, an Asko dishwasher and honed Burlington black stone counters, according to listing information.

Johansson continues to own a 4,232-square-foot house at 7222 Senalda Road in Los Angeles’ Hollywood Hills, which she purchased last year through her Tupelo Honey Trust for exactly $7,000,000.
