How do you top a dreamy Connecticut country house? Well, if you're Fredrik Eklund, you buy an equally-amazing apartment in New York City. And while the Million Dollar Listing New York agent is keeping most of the home under wraps (for now), he is dishing a bit about the pad, which he has billed his "perfect apartment."
"Wait till you see the rest of it, O-M-G!" he told The Daily Dish when we pointed out how amazing the bathroom is (check out a picture below). Fredrik wants to keep more details about the apartment hush hush for now (leaving us tons of real estate FOMO), but he did share that he and husband Derek Kaplan personalized the pad to suit their taste — and they're already entertaining.
"It's just something we've been working on for a long time and years in the making," he said. "We bought that [as] new construction and then the building took a while to be finished. We had the first dinner party last night, I had my birthday dinner. I had six of my closest friends over, and I looked around the table and looked around the apartment, and for the very first time in my life, I felt I'm living in my dream home."
That wine-filled dinner party in his luxurious new pad left Fredrik thinking a bit more about his life. "We were laughing so much and I remember when I was younger I used to laugh at least once a day until I cried, you know when your stomach hurts," he said. "I need to remind myself to do that at least once a day. But last night, I was crying laughing. It was an amazing dinner."
