Last year journalist Katie Couric purchased a condo on East 78th Street for over $12 million. Now she is listing her five-bedroom home on Park Avenue.
The building is famed for its generous and graceful floorplans, high ceilings and pretty exposures. This 10-room apartment has big windows, beautiful original parquet flooring as well as charming views of Park Avenue’s famous tulip gardens, tree tops and The Brick Church.
The unusually large eat-in kitchen opens to a breakfast room and butler’s pantry. Conveniently located next to the kitchen is the windowed laundry room and a double-staff room with a bath. The staff room is adjacent to the main bedroom hallway and can easily be converted to an additional bedroom suite.
Stretching along Park Avenue is a large and bright dining room. There is also a library, which can be used as a bedroom, as well as four additional bedrooms for a total of five bedrooms and 4.5 baths. All rooms have lovely exposures.
Built in 1915, 1155 Park Avenue is a full-service coop with 24-hour doorman service, a fitness center, a bike room and live-in super.
This unit is listed for $7.995 million with Stribling Associates and is showcased by Luxury Portfolio.
