News anchor darling Katie Couric and her husband of nearly two years, financier John Molner, have purchased a lavish Upper East Side condo for $12,168,087, according to city records released today. The five-bedroom, full-floor spread is located at 151 East 78th Street, a recently-completed building by Peter Pennoyer Architects that has only 14 residences spread across its 16 floors. Couric’s new 3,966-square-foot digs are classically elegant, as the architect took a modern interpretation of the Rosario Candela-designed residences on Park and Fifth Avenues. The home begins in a private entry gallery and then opens to the entertaining and bedroom wings.

Peter Pennoyer collaborated with Smallbone of Devizes on the kitchens, which offer coffered ceilings, hand-painted white oak cabinetry, and specially outfitted spice, cutlery, utensil and pot drawers. There’s a walk-in pantry and seating at both the island and kitchen table.

The master suite has walk-in closets and a five-feature bath with radiant heated floors and eight-jet steam shower. There are four additional full baths, three other bedrooms, and a library that could serve as a fifth bedroom. There’s also a large laundry room.
