Have you ever wondered what kind of place $18.5 million could buy you? One fancy enough for Christian Grey, at least. World-famous soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo recently purchased the New York City apartment that reportedly inspired the Fifty Shades of Grey bachelor pad owned by the title character.

The Manhattan loft may not be in Seattle, but it is apparently the model used by EL James for her BDSM-obsessed billionaire control freak's home. Ronaldo bought the place off Italian real estate entrepreneur Alessandro Proto, who is widely rumored to be the inspiration for Christian Grey.

The loft apparently does not contain a Red Room of Pain (boo!), but there are some pretty amazing details packed into the 2,509-square-foot unit. The view of Central Park doesn't suck either.
