The condominium's entrance hallway leads to the dining room – with corner views of the Hudson River.

"Mr. Wright's a man who's certainly used to a corner office – so he built one for himself here, and it's his favorite room in the house," says Corcoran Group broker Leighton Candler. "He's surrounded by wonderful memorabilia from his time at NBC and traveling around the world."

The smart home's media room has one of the apartment's three fireplaces that turns on with the flip of a switch.

The condo has three bedrooms including the modern master suite with a stealth TV that drops from the ceiling.

The Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame inductee tells CNBC he purchased the home in 2003 – which, at the time, was merely a concrete slab. And after a two-year construction job, he moved in 2006.

Disclosure: NBC and CNBC are divisions of NBCUniversal.
