Television chef Jamie Oliver just found out the apartment where he filmed his first cooking show is up for sale. Apparently, in the UK, cooking shows are actually filmed in people’s apartments. Cool, eh? Here’s the good word from Oliver as reprinted in The Independent:
It’s been revamped and extended. There’s a waterproof screen in the spa bathroom, fibre-optic mood lighting and a gym – and it’s only five minutes from my restaurant Fifteen. Lovely jubbly! I rang the old estate agent to see what they had to say. Spoke to the lovely Zoe. Turns out they want two million quid for it! And it’s only got two bedrooms. She told me the current owners thought my urban kitchen was a bit poxy, so they did it up. Reckon they might even get more than two mill for it, thanks to the fact that I used to live there. Should be one of those blue plaques on the wall, if you ask me.
Yes, for around $4 million, Jamie Oliver’s Shoreditch apartment can be yours.
