Last year, Katie Couric and her husband of nearly two years, financier John Molner purchased a five-bedroom full-floor apartment at the Peter Pennover-designed 151 East 78th Street, paying $12,168,087. Now, the New York Post reports that the celebrated news anchor’s longtime home at 1155 Park Avenue is for sale. The 10-room co-op, listed for $8.25 million, has five bedrooms and high ceilings, large windows, original parquet flooring and treetop views over Park Avenue’s famous tulip gardens. The classic Upper East Side full-service building offers a 24-hour doorman and a fitness center among its perks.
Enter through a semi-private elevator landing and into a gracious entry gallery, which in turn brings you into the the formal entertaining rooms. An expansive living room–big enough for several seating areas–has three oversized windows the avenue. The home’s library can also be used as a bedroom, bringing the very grand total to five.
A long dining room stretches out along Park Avenue. The outsized eat-in kitchen gives you the options of using a breakfast room and a butlers pantry. There’s also a laundry room just off the kitchen which is attached to a staff bedroom; the area could led itself to the creation of yet another bedroom.
The full-service coop offers a 24-hour doorman service, a fitness center, a bike room and live-in super.
