Later, Los Angeles! Broadway superstar Sutton Foster has long been based in the Big Apple, where she primarily resides in a posh Upper West Side penthouse with her husband, screenwriter Ted Griffin, and their 4-year-old daughter, Emily.
And now, with news that she’ll be returning to the Great White Way this December after a six-year hiatus (during which she’d filmed her hit show, Younger), it seems she has little desire to hold on to her California pied-à-terre. Foster, 46, purchased the 1969-built Studio City pad — listed for $1.5 million — nearly nine years ago and decided to keep the interior design true to the era’s eclectic aesthetic.
The sunny 2,332-square-foot abode features vintage brick and tile accents as well as a mix of neutral and patterned furnishings (think: a wicker love seat in retro flower print and a cowhide-style rug). Of course, parts of the three-bed, three-and-a-half-bath have been updated — including the kitchen and primary bathroom, though they’re not without personality thanks to pops of color and statement lighting.
Still, the nicest spot in the house could very well be out back: The deck is a veritable oasis thanks to a long swimming pool, lush foilage and romantic string lights.
While some New Yorkers would miss the outdoor space, Foster and her family aren’t stuck in the concrete jungle. They recently bought a seven bedroom Dutch Colonial in Tuxedo Park, a bucolic, sparsely populated village about an hour drive from Manhattan, where lakes, nature trails and vineyards are just a stone’s throw away.
