Ina Garten, popularly known as the Barefoot Contessa, will no doubt be cooking up a storm in the two-bedroom apartment she just purchased in Manhattan's Upper East Side neighborhood.
Garten and her husband Jeffrey paid $4.65 million for the stunning home, located at the corner of Park Avenue and 62nd Street in Manhattan. This pre-war beauty offers exposed views of East Manhattan and downtown, and has exquisite interior details including a spacious 19 X 36 foot living room, wood-burning fireplaces and a magnificent corner library that will easily hold her vast collection of cookbooks.
The apartment is optimally located in the city — just a few blocks from Central Park and the Big Apple's best shopping, including Bloomingdale's. And when she doesn't feel like cooking, Garten can easily walk to top-rated neighborhood restaurants, like Daniel, for a delicious bite.
