After all, there’s no need to worry about having a place near work. In addition to the disgraced anchorman’s Sag Harbor home (one of his three Hamptons properties) Lauer’s Upper East Side co-op at 133 East 64th Street is now for sale, asking $7.35 million. The four-bedroom, 11-room pad is also, as the Post points out, where the former “Today” anchor was holed up last November when he was informed of his dismissal by NBC News head Andy Lack.
This pre-war apartment is, as all of Lauer’s homes tend to be, spacious and elegantly decorated with every high-end fixture and finish on board. In classic Manhattan style, a private elevator landing precedes a gracious entry foyer. The living room has high ceilings, a wood burning fireplace and custom bookshelves, highlighted by the home’s polished dark chocolate-hued hardwood floors.
The library offers treetop and city views and walls done in dusky-hued hand-rubbed venetian plaster. The spacious dining room is bright and open, with plenty of room for guests, former friends and family, all of whom would be unlikely to accept dinner invitations from the home’s current owner.
The kitchen is a high-quality affair, with top-of-the line appliances, plenty of storage and enough ovens to turn out a real feast. There’s a laundry room/playroom just off the kitchen for even more flexible, usable space.
The bedroom wing far outclasses its reputation, with a private master suite that includes two large dressing rooms, two marble bathrooms and a sitting room/den. Two secondary bedrooms also feature en-suite baths.
