Want to get a foot in the door at 1030 Fifth but don't quite have $35 million? There's a fresh listing in the building asking the slightly more affordable price of $22 million. It's on a lower floor (the third) and isn't a full-floor spread, but it has recently been treated to a gut renovation. If the change in price isn't an indication of just how thorough the renovation was?the apartment last sold in early 2010 for $8,898,000?the brokerbabble offers some additional deets:
Only the finest fixtures and finishes have been utilized throughout, touching every single inch of this 12-into-9-room residence. Entrance is directly from the locking elevator into an oversized multi-columned gallery with a powder room. Directly in front is the living room with wood burning fireplace, flanked by the dining room with wood burning fireplace on one side and the corner library on the other. All three of these rooms face Fifth Avenue and enjoy unobstructed views of Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum of Art?.The primary bedroom wing runs down the south-facing East 84th Street side of the building, with an oversized master suite and bathroom, as well as two additional bedrooms with bathrooms en suite. All of which makes us wonder, of course, what the apartment looked like before.
