Late Broadcast Journalist Peter Jennings’s Upper West Side Apartment Lists for $10.45M

The Upper West Side apartment of Peter Jennings, former anchor of ABC World News Tonight and an acclaimed fixture in American news reporting, is on the market for $10.45 million. Former ABC News producer Kayce Freed Jennings, his wife, is selling the residence.

Jennings passed away in 2005 and his widow is looking to downsize after residing in the 11th-story unit for 25 years. The news anchor’s widow told the Wall Street Journal that her late husband bought the unit in the 1990s, extensively renovated it, and that she has lived there since 1998.

It’s light and bright, with the windows bringing in tons of natural light and offering a live look at the city. But, stunning views of Central Park aren’t the home’s only camera-ready features. The large kitchen—a result of Jennings’ removal of the staff quarters—is perhaps the most eye-catching space. As well as boasting rich woodwork that is classically elegant, it has top-of-the-line appliances even top chefs would appreciate. The home’s woodwork shines throughout the apartment, becoming its defining design element.

The 3,600-square-foot home totals three bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom. An additional full bathroom, a powder room, and a laundry room are added features. Between the living room, dining room, and library, there is ample space to entertain. “The layout is exceptional,” the seller told the WSJ, noting the home had been the venue for various events. “The apartment is really well designed for that.”

The pre-war building, just blocks from ABC News’ headquarters, offers luxurious amenities of its own—from 24-hour doormen, a fitness center, and storage. Bonnie Chajet and Lisa Chajet of Coldwell Banker Warburg hold the listing.
