Just weeks after ex-“Today” anchor Matt Lauer’s Upper East Side co-op at 133 East 64th Street hit the market asking $7.35 million, the four-bedroom, 11-room apartment has sold for just upwards of $7 million, the New York Post reports. The disgraced newsman used the apartment as a city home during the week while working at NBC. Lauer’s Sag Harbor home (one of his three Hamptons properties) is also for sale.

The spacious pre-war apartment is elegantly decorated, with a private elevator landing preceding 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 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.

The sale may still be subject to co-op board approval, which could take months. It’s worth noting that Bernie Madoff once owned the penthouse in the same building.
