Twenty years ago, celebrated news anchor Katie Couric bought a classic, five-bedroom co-op at 1155 Park Avenue. But after remarrying in 2014 to financier John Molner in 2014, the couple upgraded to a $12 million, full-floor apartment at the Peter Pennover-designed 151 East 78th Street. Couric first listed her longtime Upper East Side home this past October for $8.25 million; she then dropped the price to $7,995,000 at the end of January, and now the Post reports that the home has gone into contract.
The 10-room co-op has high ceilings, large windows, original parquet flooring, and views over Park Avenue’s famous tulip gardens. An entry gallery leads to the formal entertaining rooms, including a large living room that can fit several seating areas.
In addition to a spacious dining room, there’s an eat-in kitchen with both a breakfast room and aa butlers pantry. There’s also a laundry room just off the kitchen which is attached to a staff bedroom.
The full-service coop offers a 24-hour doorman service, a fitness center, a bike room and live-in super.
