Famously cranky television personality and producer Simon Cowell has picked up a new home at 151 East 78th Street on the Upper East Side.

Cowell plunked down $10.85 million for the pad, which the New York Post speculates is the three-bedroom Penthouse B. The 3,381-square-foot home features a hand-laid African St. Laurent and white polished marble slab floor, custom-designed hardware and four exposures, according to the listing.

Cowell and girlfriend Lauren Silverman have reportedly been on the house hunt for several months, and have been spotted leaving the St. Regis Hotel to scope out Upper East Side dwellings. The location and size of the 78th Street property is similar to the $26,000-per-month apartment Cowell rented for Silverman after she became pregnant, according to the Post.

“They wanted to be on the Upper East Side, and they love modern and new,” an unnamed source told the paper.

Developer Spruce Capital Partners kicked off sales at 151 East 78th Street in March, offering up 14 units designed by neoclassical architect Peter Pennoyer. Spruce bought the property in three parcels for $29 million at the end of 2012, as previously reported[NYP] and [Curbed]Julie Strickland
