Co-ops at 834 Fifth Avenue, one of the blue chippiest of the blue-chip buildings on the Upper East Side, don’t come to the market too often, so when they do, we tend to take notice. The latest: a two-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom spread on the seventh floor, with a price tag of $24 million.
That may sound like a lot for two bedrooms, but consider the building’s pedigree—designed by Rosario Candela, home to many a billionaire—and the layout of the apartment itself, which boasts “10 WINDOWS ON FIFTH,” according to the listing. It also happens to be on the same floor as the enormous duplex apartment that was once asking a whopping $120 million. (It’s now asking an only slightly less absurd $76 million.)
This particular pad was owned by philanthropist Ruth Stanton for more than 40 years, and is being sold by her family; Brown Harris Stevens has the listing.
In addition to those 10 windows overlooking Fifth Avenue (and thus, Central Park—heck, even the dressing room just off the master bedroom has a Central Park view), the apartment has high ceilings, its own private elevator entrance, two wood-burning fireplaces, an entire kitchen wing with a breakfast nook, a formal library with a wet bar, tons of closet space, and even more. There are also three staff rooms on an upper level, because of course there are.
