The listing price on the New York City condo that Anthony Bourdain owned with his ex Ottavia Busia has reduced by $400,000.
The apartment was first listed for sale at $3.7 million with Elizabeth Fishman with Stribling & Associates in September, nearly four months after Bourdain’s tragic death. Now, the home has been reduced to $3.3 million, which is $500,000 less than the former spouses paid for it in 2014, according to a representative for Stribling & Associates.
After the couple split in 2016, the late chef and travel show host moved out and rented an apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, while Busia lived in the four-bedroom, three-bathroom condo with their daughter Ariane, 11. The couple’s divorce was never finalized.
Bourdain died by suicide in his hotel room in France on June 8 while filming an upcoming episode of Parts Unknown with his close friend, chef Eric Ripert.
In July, Bourdain’s will revealed that he was worth $1.21 million at his time of death, and he left the majority of his estate to his daughter. This apartment was not listed in the court documents obtained by PEOPLE, but the filings indicated a $1 million mortgage liability for an unspecified property.

“I own an apartment with a mortgage that my ex-wife and my daughter live in, and I’m a renter. I should always be a renter,” Bourdain told PEOPLE in February. “I regret buying that apartment. The bank owns it, and then you’re stuck with it.”
