Julianna Margulies returned to her New York City apartment to find it flooded earlier this month on the same day a photo-shoot of the swanky downtown Manhattan pad was featured in Architectural Digest magazine.

In a recent appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show, the Emmy-winning star of "The Good Wife" said she was returning with her family from a holiday skiing trip in Colorado when she walked into a flooded apartment.

"We walked into our brand-new apartment with this [magazine] – it was in the mail – and everything was flooded," she said. "The whole place had completely flooded from the guy upstairs."

According to Margulies, the flood was caused by her upstairs neighbor's radiator exploding, People Magazine reported.

Looking at the photo spread of the apartment in Architectural Digest magazine, DeGeneres remarked, "Of what it used to look like, it looked amazing."

The bright, airy apartment is located in lower Manhattan's SoHo district, which stands for South of Houston Street – a major street that connects the east and west sides of the borough.

The 2,200-square-foot loft-like residence which appears to overlook Broadway, was purchased a decade ago while the building was still under construction and combines two units — a studio apartment and a two-bedroom, according to Architectural Digest magazine. It was not reported how much the 47-year-old Margulies paid for the apartment.

"I bought it thinking I’d flip it," Margulies told the magazine, however she altered her plans after living in the space with its ten-foot-plus ceilings and large windows.

"There’s just this sense of calm here," she added. "I didn’t realize what a smart buy it was."

In 2007 Margulies married Keith Lieberthal, a global director for a financial research company. One year later the couple had a son they named Kieran.

"Suddenly I had a husband, a baby, and this hectic, crazy life," Margulies said.

Rather than move to a larger space, the couple decided to hire interior designer Vicente Wolf to add a new look to their existing space as their family expanded, Architectural Digest magazine reported.

"I’m obsessed with design magazines," Margulies confesses. "And every time I’d get to a room I loved, it was Vicente’s. He has this way of making spaces not just beautiful but homey, modern, and useful."
