Sixteen-year Victoria’s Secret veteran supermodel Adriana Lima may have no problem sauntering down the runway, but things haven’t come as easily for her real estate game. The Brazilian beauty bought a two-bedroom pad in Midtown West for $1.995 million in 2003. Six years later, she married NBA player Marko Jarić and had two children in 2009 and 2012. The next year they tried to offload the Metropolitan Tower apartment for $5.5 million, but after there were no takers, took it off the market. Now that the couple’s split up (they finalized their divorce earlier this year), Lima is giving it another go, this time hoping to get $4.85 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Lima renovated the 2,200-square-foot spread, adding modern updates like Venetian plaster walls and a Creston system that controls lighting, music, temperature and shades.
The foyer leads to a large entertaining/dining area with floor-to-ceiling windows that provide northern views of Central Park and southern views of the skyline.
Off the main living area is the cozy but bright, wood-paneled den, which can also function as a third bedroom or office, especially considering the full walls of built-in desks and a media center.
The two bedroom suites are located in their own section of the home. The master has several built-in closets, including a walk-in, as well as a marble bath.
In a phone call with the Journal, Jarić said he and Lima relocated to Miami several years ago. Since their children go to school there, they’ve only been using the New York apartment as a pied-à-terre.
