Singer/songwriter Vanessa Carlton, of “A Thousand Miles” fame is renting out her Soho apartment for $17,500-a-month. No, it’s not in a “White House.”

The singer paid $1.825 million for the co-op at 182 Lafayette Street in 2004, and first listed it on the rental market in 2014. She has rented it out four times since then; the most recent asking price was $15,500-a-month, so this new listing is asking considerably more.

According to the listing, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment has 2,500 square feet and offers a keyed elevator entrance, exposed brick, iron columns, a chef’s kitchen, and an ensuite master bathroom with a deep spa tub and a bidet. This co-op does allow pied-a-terres. As the Observer, who first spotted the listing, points out, it looks like Carlton has left her precious pianos in the home, so whoever the renter is can try their hand at writing a hit single on the instruments. Good luck with that.

Lisa R. Garey of Core has the listing.
