Ina Garten has put her New York apartment on the market
Celebrity chef Ina Garten, otherwise known as the Barefoot Contessa, has listed her one bedroom Park Avenue, New York apartment for US$1.98 million (NZ$2.8 million).
Located in the heart of the Upper East Side, the one bedroom co-op features an elegant double-height living room, a hotel-like marble bathroom and, unsurprisingly, a state-of-the-art kitchen.
The cook book author and Food Network star purchased the property with her husband in 2004 and enlisted the help of architect Daniel Romualdez to transform the formerly two-bedroom apartment into what it is today.
"I wanted it to feel like a refuge — a place for her to curl up and recharge," Romualdez told Food Network Magazine.
Situated two streets back from Central Park and in walking distance of some of New York Cities illustrious luxury shopping district, why would Garten want to give up the chic pad?
She recently upgraded to a larger Upper East Side apartment located only a few blocks away and from splitting time between her home in the Hamptons and in Paris, one pied-à-terre is more than enough.
