Floorplan Porn: Quick, Hide the Kids!

New, 10 comments

Who needs so many bathrooms and closets? Someone who can drop $13 million on an Upper East Side co-op with 60 percent down, that's who. Or, more accurately, some long-ago owner's staff: Built in 1926, this 12 room urban manse at 888 Park Avenue has been gutted from stem to stern in order to transform its former servant's quarters into an extra bedroom or two. So that explains the tiny kitchen, dorm-sized bedroom, and breakfast room jammed into that gimpy-looking appendage on the left, as well as the remaining 4 bedrooms slammed together at the opposite end of the space. Hidden maids paved the way for hidden kids! One of 74 residential units, #4B last sold back in March for $12 million; nine months later, we have a rather quick flip for an extra mil.
