After having to face several accusations of sexual harassment and getting divorced, he's now selling something really big.


Amid these allegations in the workplace, which resulted in the late 2017 termination of his well-earned position as co-anchor on the Today show, Matt Lauer wants to sell his apartment.

According to Variety, Lauer and his now estranged wife, former Dutch model Annette Roque, who was married to him for nearly 20 years, listed their apartment on New York City’s Upper East Side.

The same outlet revealed that the place is a sophisticated triple-mint co-operative apartment, which is tastefully decorated.

The couple purchased the place in 2004 for $5.882 million, and are now asking $7.35 million for it. Talk about real estate and good returns.


According to Variety, the sixth-floor unit carries maintenance fees of $7,776 per month and is located just above the leafy treetops. The place has three, and potentially more, bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms in about 3,500-square-feet.

The entrance isn't modest at all, as a private elevator landing and entrance gallery leads to a proportioned east-facing line of public rooms.


The 30-foot-long living room features a carved marble wood-burning fireplace, custom bookshelves, and three beautiful sash windows.

To the north, a corner den/library with an adjoining powder room, and to the south, a giant formal dining room wrapped in floral wallpaper.


Behind the dining room, a butler’s pantry leads to the luxurious kitchen, featuring top-end fittings, high-tech appliance, and a walk-in pantry. There's also a breakfast room and a separate laundry/children’s playroom.

A private wing is the one holding all the rooms, two en-suite guest bedrooms and also a multi-room master suite, featuring a study/sitting room, a large bedroom, two custom fitted dressing rooms and separate walk-in closet.


Roque and Lauer, who reportedly hauled in $20 million a year for his anchor job at Today, are regulars to the real estate market.

In the fall of 2016, they sold a modest bay front Cape Cod cottage in North Sea area for $3.5 million, and several months after, they also sold a noteworthy $36.5 million for the “Strongheart” compound. It is safe to assume that they'll be fine with this one.
