News anchor Katie Couric, recently of Yahoo and formerly of the Today show and 60 Minutes, has snagged a lovely piece of Manhattan real estate. 6sqft reports that the journalist and her husband, financier John Molner, recently purchased a 3,966-square-foot pad at 151 East 78th Street, the Peter Pennoyer building that also counts Simon Cowell as one of its residents.
The unit that Couric purchased is a four bedroom with a fifth space that could be used as a library or another bedroom, if need be. It also comes with "Parisian-like mahogany double hung weight-and-chain floor-to-ceiling windows" (that's a mouthful), an eat-in kitchen, luxe finishes, and this: "state-of-the art mechanicals and environmental systems, including an emergency generator, humidification system, wiring for audio, communications, data ports and the most sophisticated air conditioning and heating system available." Nice.
