Former “Today” show host Matt Lauer sold his apartment on Manhattan’s tony Upper East Side Monday, according to listing records with StreetEasy.
Mr. Lauer, 60, put the four-bedroom co-op on the market in March, and by April—just 25 days later—it had found a buyer and entered into contract, listing records show. It has changed hands for above its $7.35 million asking price, according to a person with knowledge of the deal.
Mansion Global could not determine the identity of the buyer, or the exact sale price.
The home, on East 64th Street, has a private elevator landing; a living room with high ceilings, custom bookshelves, parquet hardwood floors and a wood-burning fireplace; and a corner library with views downtown.
The private master bedroom suite has two large dressing rooms, two marble bathrooms and a sitting room, according to the listing with Alexa Lambert, Marc Achilles and Julie Soffen of Stribling & Associates. The brokers did not respond to a request for comment.
Mr. Lauer paid $5.88 million for the home in 2004, property records show.
Neither he, nor a representative for him, could be reached for comment.
Mr. Lauer co-anchored NBC’s “Today” show for more than 20 years before allegations of sexual misconduct led to his firing in November.
In April he gave a statement to the Washington Post in which he acknowledged acting inappropriately but denied any allegations or reports of “coercive, aggressive, or abusive actions.”
TMZ first reported the sale.
