Thomas Keller, Michelin-starred chef (French Laundry, Per Se) and noted Reese's Peanut Butter Cup aficionado, just scored a new piece of real estate in Napa.
In September, the molecular gastronomist purchased a 1968 ranch home for a cool $1,950,000—$55,000 above asking.
As SFGate notes, “Listing agents were tight-lipped when queried about Keller's plans for the property.”
While we’re unsure exactly what Chef Keller plans to do with the property—it could become his residence or, since it’s located on primo terroir, a new food/wine-related venture—he will presumably renovated the dated abode. The home’s current decor consists of wood-paneled walls, linoleum tile, pastel wallpaper, and—most heavenly—emerald-green carpet.
Haters to the left, please; that carpet is cool. Green is in, haven’t you heard?
