NEW YORK CITY, NY - Cornelia Zagat Eland and Mark Reynolds Blumenfeld of Stribling & Associates have closed the sale on a pre-war apartment conveniently located close to Central Park. The light-filled home was purchased by Ina Garten and her husband Jeffrey for $4.65 million.
The collaboration of a renowned designer and the home owner, formerly editor-in-chief of a major design magazine, has resulted in an extraordinarily handsome, gracious pre-war home with a tranquil feel. The home is in impeccable, move-in condition. Its fabulous 19 X 36 foot living room has four large windows along its length, a 10 foot ceiling and wood burning fireplace. A magnificent, ultra-chic, almost-square corner library, also with a fireplace, is welcoming and comfortable. There is a third fireplace in the lovely master bedroom and a second bedroom. With Eastern and Southern exposures, the apartment's large windows allow for great light throughout. The kitchen was recently renovated and is perfect for an enthusiastic cook. There is through-wall air conditioning with individual thermostats in each room. The apartment was completely rewired for electric and sound. 563 Park Avenue at 62nd and Park Avenue is close to Central Park, to shops such as Bloomingdales, Hermes, Barneys, and Bergdorf and near to some of the best casual and formal restaurants on the Upper East Side ranging from Bibloquet and Fred's to Daniel.
