While the rest of us will have to wait until 2017—when Fifty Shades Darker is released in February—for another glimpse into Christian Grey's private residence, it looks as if one lucky homebuyer will be able to go behind closed doors much sooner. The penthouse that served as the inspiration for Mr. Grey's swank Seattle pad in E.L. James's trilogy has been listed (and is currently under contract) for $8.8 million.
The 5170-square-foot three-bedroom, three-bath apartment has just been swept off the market, but it's not too late to take a visual tour of its palatial offerings. The downtown residence boasts Mr. Grey's famous floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto Seattle's skyline, complete with views of the Puget Sound and Space Needle. The current aesthetics of the sprawling space even include elements similar to its fictional rendering—sleek, modern décor and a master suite furnished with a crimson tufted headboard and red-toned bedding that can't help but bring to mind the notorious Red Room.
