News anchor Katie Couric and her husband John Molner have picked up quite a pad for themselves on the Upper East Side. The couple paid $12.17 million for an apartment at 151 East 78th Street, according to city records, which is a good deal over the asking price of $11.95 million. 6 sqft first spotted the sale. Cathy Taub and Alexa Lambert of Stribling had the listing.
The 3,966-square-foot apartment has four bedrooms (plus a library that could be converted into a fifth in a pinch), five bathrooms, a private elevator landing, two Sub-Zero refrigerators and two Miele dishwashers, walk-in closets in the master bedroom, plus a bathroom with heated floors and an eight-steam shower with a bench.
The brand new building from 2014 was designed by architect Peter Pennoyer and has a landscaped garden and a gym.
Couric and Molner, who is a Senior Advisor at Brown Brothers Harriman, married in June 2014 at Couric’s home in East Hampton. According to public records, Couric has also owned an apartment in the co-op building 1185 Park Avenue since the late-1990’s.
