This past August, Food Network star and famed cookbook author Ina Garten, along with husband Jeffrey, Yale University dean emeritus, dropped $4.65 million on an Upper East Side co-op at 563 Park Avenue, which they somewhat ironically bought from Nancy Novogrod, former editor-in-chief of Travel + Leisure magazine and Condé Nast’s House & Garden. Since they’ve now presumably settled in and made the elegant space their own, the couple has listed their nearby (smaller) pied-a-terre at 71 East 77th Street. The Post reports that the charming Daniel Romualdez-designed pad will be hitting the market for $1.97 million.
Ina and Jeffrey bought the apartment in 2004 and then enlisted AD 100 designer Romualdez to transform the home from a two-bedroom to a one-bedroom with a double-height living room, state-of-the-art kitchen, and “tranquil” master bedroom suite. The listing says the dining alcove looking down over the living room makes the space “feel quite Parisian.” Other details include a wood-burning fireplace, fabric wallpaper, and parquet wood floors.
In addition to their other Upper East Side home, the Gartens spend a good deal of time in Paris and the Hamptons.
