For 2 Million Dollars You Can Cook in Ina Garten’s Kitchen
Ina Garten really has it all: a Pinterest board’s worth of memes dedicated to her specific lifestyle brand of aspirational yet totally unattainable (we kid, we just really all want her killer flower and vegetable garden), a veritable food empire, and not one, but two gorgeous Manhattan pied-à-terres.
But now you too can have a slice of the Ina life. She and Jeffrey recently listed the smaller of the two apartments this week for sale. Stribling represents the one-bedroom, one-bathroom Upper East Side property, which is listed for a cool $1,975,000.
That’s not exactly milk money, but the thinking might be if you can afford her fancy butter, you can afford her fancy apartment.
When Ina and Jeffrey bought the cooperative apartment in 2004, they had designer Daniel Rodriguez transform the two-bedroom abode into a spacious one-bedroom apartment. Apparently, the designer told Food Network magazine in 2014, “I wanted it to feel like a refuge — a place for her to curl up and recharge.”
The pre-war apartment is near Central Park and includes a master suite, high ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace in the sunken living room, and one sweet kitchen. You can see the full listing on StreetEasy.
Now, let’s talk about the most important part of the apartment: the kitchen. As you can see in the photos, the kitchen has long, dark countertops, open shelving, an impressive-looking vented range, and a window (quite the enviable asset in a New York City apartment). If that’s not the perfect place to whip up some classic French cuisine while toasting to your picture-perfect life, what is?
If you have the dough (pun intended), you might be able to live in this joint, as long as you are approved by the apartment’s cooperative board.
