Natalie Morales, the "Today" co-anchor who traded jobs and coasts with "Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush in August, has sold her Hoboken townhouse for the asking price of $3.1 million.
(Morales is now the host of "Access Hollywood" but also is the West Coast anchor for "Today." On Monday morning, she had the job of announcing that NBC had suspended Bush for his role in the recently-surfaced 2005 tape of Bush bantering in extremely vulgar terms with Donald Trump.)
Morales and her husband Joseph Rhodes, bought the townhouse in 2002 for $1 million and expanded it in 2008 to 3,600 square feet. They put the home on the market in June and swiftly found a buyer, although listing agents Peter Cossio and Matt Brown of Halstead Property would not reveal the purchase price at the time. Cossio confirmed Monday the $3.1 million sale price.
The owners of a Glen Ridge home designed in the Usonian style by Frank Lloyd Wright are asking $1 million, while the owners of a Bernardsville home want $2 million
The renovated and expanded home features a modern kitchen with heated Brazilian slate floors and a backyard with a play area, custom built-in barbecue island with granite countertops, and a 42-inch gas grill and a Kalamazoo pizza oven. Taxes are $25,574 a year.
Morales and her husband, who have two children, picked up new digs in Brentwood, Calif., in August, spending $6.8 million on a 6-bedroom East Coast traditional-style home. Taxes? $2,658 a year.
Cossio also handled the recent Hudson County record sale of another fully-renovated townhouse in Hoboken for $6.5 million. The most expensive listing in Hoboken remains Eli Manning's 3-bedroom condo in the Hudson Tea Building fort $5.2 million, which came on the market last year and has not seen a price reduction.
