Update 8/2/17: A little over three months after it came on the market, Lester Holt’s Nomad condo has sold for $6.4 million, property records reveal. That’s just $200,000 less than what Holt and his wife were asking for the spacious condo, and considering they paid $3.3 million for it in 2007, they seem to have turned a neat profit on it as well.
Journalist Lester Holt and his wife Carol Hagen-Holt are looking to sell their spacious Nomad condo for $6.6 million, Luxury Listings NYC has learned. Incidentally, Hagen-Holt also happens to be the broker on the property along with Joann Wasserman of Town Residential.
The couple purchased the apartment back in 2007 for $3.3 million, property records reveal. The apartment is located in the landmarked 225 Fifth Avenue, which was built in 1906, and has served as a hotel, a warehouse, and a showroom in the past.
In 2006, the Elad Group converted the 13-story Beaux Arts building into a luxury condo that’s now known as the Grand Madison. The Holts’ apartment spans 2,168 square feet and comes with three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.
The condo overlooks Madison Square Park and comes with 11-foot-tall ceilings, and a large terrace that’s connected to all three bedrooms in the apartment. Some of the swanky features in this condo include the bluestone counters in the kitchen, Lutron shades, and the Calacatta marble-clad bathrooms.
Lester Holt has been working as a journalist since the 1980s, and currently anchors the NBC Nightly News and Dateline NBC. Holt also moderated the first of the three presidential debates last year.
Previous notable tenants at 225 Fifth Avenue include Chelsea Clinton and her husband Marc Mezvinsky. The latter sold his three-bedroom home at the Grand Madison for $4.75 million in September 2013.
