Daphne Oz of ‘The Chew’ looks to double her profits on Murray Hill co-op

Daphne Oz, co-host of “The Chew” and daughter of Dr. Oz, and her husband John Jovanovic dropped $1.6 million on a Murray Hill co-op back in January 2015. At the time, the three-bedroom unit at 140 East 40th Street was described as “Soho meets MoMA,” but new listing photos point to a renovation that left the home with a much more traditional and classy look. As LLNYC first reported, the couple is trying to unload the pad for $2.5 million, which seems fair considering the upgrades, especially (but not surprisingly!) those in the kitchen.

The apartment, which is actually a combination of three separate units, has a nice open layout, perfect for entertaining friends like fellow chef Katie Lee and Lauren Bush Lauren. There’s hand-planed walnut flooring throughout, as well as an in-ceiling speaker system (with weather-proof speakers on the terrace), and new baseboards and wood doors.

The kitchen boasts an oversized breakfast bar, caesarstone counters and backsplash, custom wood cabinetry painted white, high-end stainless steel appliances, and a Janerotech water purification system. The bar area, adjacent to the kitchen and dining room, has a 100-bottle Sub-Zero wine fridge, as well as open shelving and more caesarstone counters. There’s an oversized pantry with marble floors and room for the stacked washer/dryer.

The living room opens to the 50-foot terrace through restored steel casement windows and three French doors.

The master has three large windows, as well as French doors that open to the terrace. There’s also an en-suite marble bath and a walk-in closet with custom built-ins.

The second bedroom opens to the terrace, too, and has an en-suite. The third is located down a separate hallway off the entry foyer, making it perfect for a guest room. Additionally, there’s an office.

Oz and Jovanovic previously lived in New Jersey, but likely moved to Manhattan since “The Chew” films in Lincoln Center. Perhaps they’re looking to be closer to the studio or, since they now have two children, would like more space.
