All of Meredith Vieira’s hard work has certainly paid off. According to the Post, the journalist-slash-talk-show-host-slash-game-show-host has just scooped up a penthouse at the El Dorado. The home is a three-bedroom stunner with two large terraces and Central Park reservoir views. The final closing price has yet to be revealed, but it was last asking $8.55 million in May when it went into contract. The previous owners paid $5.95 million for it back in 2011—surely a recent, beautiful, never-lived-in renovation helped give this CPW pad a price boost.
The 19th floor penthouse is described as a “sun-drenched” space surrounded by two large terraces (accessible through all the bedrooms) and featuring “loft-like” living and dining rooms with a wall of south-facing windows. The spacious eat-in kitchen also boasts a large south-facing window, wide-plank oak floors and cutting edge appliances. The apartment is accessed via a private elevator.
Veiera’s buy comes hot off the sale of Bruce Willis’s $13 million pad, which was reported yesterday to have just gone into contract. It looks like the famed Emory Roth-designed El Dorado won’t be skipping a beat when it comes to their celeb cred.
