As a plugged-in tipster and we first reported two years ago:
After being owned by an artist, with sculptures adorning its decks, [268 Lombard #1] was bought in 2005 for $2.225M by an out of town owner…and was never really lived in for 3 years.
After being listed for the same price in 2005, the author of the Stinking Rose Cookbook, Jerry DalBozzo bought the property in November 2008 for $2.207M, and has renovated the place over the course of a few months in a decidedly Mediterranean style.
We all thought this Italian chef/author was going to move in there, and were awaiting the smell of garlic filling up the air, but were surprised to see the place back on the market for $4.895M.
Withdrawn from the market at the end of 2010 without a reported sale, yesterday 268 Lombard #1 returned to the market listed for $4,650,000 with extra emphasis on the view.
Once again, the two-level condo is 2,546 square feet per a previous listing and we’ll note the new La Cornue in the kitchen, having replaced the lowly Wolf.
