Katie Couric’s pre-war Carnegie Hill apartment is officially on the market: The journalist just listed her spacious Upper East Side home for $8.25 million.
The apartment is unusually massive—at least by New York City standards—boasting five bedrooms and a semi-private elevator landing. There’s even a “double staff room,” which for us plebeians would probably be best used as an office or sixth bedroom.
Design elements like high ceilings, original parquet flooring, and large windows that overlook Park Avenue add to the luxe feel. A stunning kitchen, complete with terracotta tiles and a breakfast room—the formal dining room is separate and located across the hall—doesn’t hurt either.
The bedrooms are sunny and simply decorated. While the listing photos show white ceilings and predominantly white furniture, color is infused via wallpaper in vibrant shades and playful prints.
One of the bathrooms pairs simple white fixtures with a pink printed wallpaper that instantly elevates the space.
As for the building itself? It’s a full-service co-op described as a “white glove” by the listing site. (Nothing less for television royalty, obviously.) It also offers a fitness center, bike room, and 24/7 doorman.
The listing is held by Stribling.
