Sandra Lee is saying goodbye to “Lily Pond,” the beloved home she once shared with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Sandra Lee, the celebrity chef, 54, was spotted on Wednesday loading her possessions into a U-Haul van near the Westchester County, NY, residence. Lee was seen in a black outfit and matching face mask as she loaded up a moving truck.
Lee spoke about bidding farewell to the four-bedroom, Colonial-style home on her Instagram, writing in a heartfelt tribute to the property: “Today will be one of the saddest days of my life. Today is the day that I do the final move out from Lily Pond.”
I walked around the outside of my beautiful home —I wanted to drink in every angle and remember the beautiful moments that were spent in every place. I stopped at the top of the hill where I planted one of 6 tree lines of evergreen trees and 200 daffodil bulbs —-I just looked at the house, I prayed the next owners would be kind to it and love it as I did—- I cried and cried,” she wrote in the lengthy Instagram caption.
Following her breakup with Cuomo, 63, in September 2019, she bought a home in California.
A source with ties to the governor said at the time, “[Cuomo] has moved out of her home in Westchester, and he has moved into the governor’s mansion in Albany.”
Another Cuomo source added, “It’s been like that for months.”
Her new Malibu home features an 80-foot waterfront deck over the ocean and sprawling views and her neighbors include Kate Hudson, movie director Chris Weitz and singer Janet Jackson.
Lee previously opened up about their breakup, calling their split “sad” and saying that Cuomo was “still my guy.”
Mr. Cuomo, known as a hard-working chief executive, continued to work even after news broke of the split, putting out a statement on a banking act passed by the House of Representatives about an hour after acknowledging the breakup.
