Australian supermodel Gemma Ward bought her East Village apartment in 2007 for $1.5 million, when she was only 20 years old, undertaking a gut renovation of the three-bedroom pad at 232 East 6th Street. But considering that, at age 16, she was the youngest model ever to appear on the cover of American Vogue, entering the NYC real estate game at 20 isn’t that shocking. And she has now listed the pre-war apartment for $2.25 million, according to the Daily News.
The spacious apartment boasts 14 windows throughout, as well as charming archways and Juliette balconies. The cast iron and glass doors that separate the den complete the open and airy feel.
The contemporary country kitchen is accented by a beautiful arched window and also features stone countertops, dual dishwashers and a deep farmhouse sink.
The third bedroom is currently configured as a den complete with a wet bar, and the second bedroom has a built-in wall unit that makes it perfect for a home office. The master bedroom has a large dressing area and an en-suite bath with a deep soaking tub and rain shower.
Gemma gave birth to a daughter last December, so she may be looking to move to a more kid-friendly home, though her current digs definitely have the space for a growing family.
