In November 6sqft featured the Upper East Side co-op at 563 Park Avenue listed by Nancy Novogrod, former editor-in-chief of Travel + Leisure magazine and Condé Nast’s House & Garden, and her husband, John, noting the just-right decor and roll-up-your-sleeves renovated kitchen. The Observer reports that sleeves will indeed be rolled up in the marble-topped chef’s paradise, as Food Network’s Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten and her husband, Yale University dean emeritus, Jeffrey, have purchased the two-bedroom home for $4.65 million.

Though the kitchen has been recently renovated and is richly appointed with high-end appliances, Garten, who works her accessibly elegant on-screen culinary magic at her East Hampton estate, gets more than just a chef’s kitchen in this stylishly-decorated five-room, two-bedroom pre-war co-op. Another highlight is the chic corner library with a cozy working fireplace; this magnificent almost-square space could easily be a third bedroom with room to spare.

A 19-by-36-foot living room boasts 10-foot ceilings, another wood-burning fireplace and the beige velvet, polished wood, artfully contrasted textiles and genteel restraint that we’d expect from a home and garden editor. Large windows look out over the neighborhood’s classic townhouses.

The dining gallery is currently the apartment’s most colorful zone, with bright coral walls, contrasting trim and a contemporary glass “drop” chandelier.

Both spacious bedrooms have en-suite baths and wood-burning fireplaces.

In addition to the cachet of a Park Avenue address, Central Park and–whenever the chef needs a rest–plenty of casual and fine dining, food markets and shopping are steps away.
