The Michelin-starred chef Thomas Keller, known for his acclaimed Napa Valley restaurant the French Laundry, has whipped up a home purchase in Napa, CA, for $2.1 million. The sale closed in November.
Built in 2002, the four-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom abode with 2,654 square feet may have all the right ingredients the restaurateur needs, either for his next home, or perhaps, another business venture. Fans of his eateries can only hope.
Alas, we were unable to find any listing photos of the award-winning chef’s purchase. But, based on the address, it’s certainly conveniently close to two of his restaurants in nearby Yountville—only about 4 miles to his food meccas Bouchon and the French Laundry.
This isn’t the first time the cookbook author has picked up a home in the area. Three years ago, we reported that the native Californian had scooped up a dated Napa-area home for $1.9 million. That same home changed hands this July for $2.3 million, providing the chef a tasty profit.
Perhaps the famous chef enjoys a home flip or two when not cooking up his latest gourmet project?
We don’t know what’s on the menu this time, but given that the owner is one of the world’s greatest chefs, we’re sure it will be quite appetizing.
Now 64, the award-winning chef runs multiple dining destinations, including the French Laundry, Bouchon, and Ad Hoc in Yountville, Bouchon in Las Vegas, and Per Se in New York. He’s also the author of “The French Laundry Cookbook.”
