We already love Food Network superstar Ina Garten's (a.k.a. the Barefoot Contessa) laid-back, yet sophisticated style. So when we learned that the couple is putting one of their New York City apartments — an Upper East Side pied-à-terre — up for sale, we had to pore through the photos in the listing.
Priced at $1.975 million through Stribling, the one-bedroom, bi-level home is on a middle floor of an 11-story building located on a quiet block, and the Gartens bought it in June 2004 for $1.4 million, according to Variety. It's also enviably cozy and Parisian-chic — we can see Ina and Jeffrey hosting intimate dinner parties here.
The couple purchased another NYC apartment — a pre-war two-bedroom, three-bathroom co-op on Park Avenue — for $4.65 million last year. They also own a top-floor home in Paris that sits between a bakery, a cheese shop, and a huge food specialty store (must be awful). "It's great because there's everything you could possibly want for giving a dinner party within a few blocks, and I love to give dinner parties in Paris," Ina once told Fodor's Travel. And, they have properties in Connecticut and, of course, East Hampton.
