Though it doesn’t have quite the same cachet as its celeb-magnet neighbor 740 Park Avenue, the circa-1928 co-op at 730 Park Avenue is plenty fancy on its own. Some of Manhattan’s wealthiest denizens have called it home—recall the $39 million penthouse that sold to a a hedge funder without ever hitting the market—as have legendary journalist Mike Wallace and the former Yugoslavia’s UN envoys. (That last one, however, didn’t go so well.)
Now, another of its blue chip apartments—a duplex on the building’s 12th and 13th floors—has hit the market, with a hefty $22 million price tag. It’s owned by a Brazilian banker (always with the bankers in these buildings) and his wife, and has five bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms; while the square footage for the place isn’t listed, you can bet that it’s pretty darn huge.
The lower level has the apartment’s common spaces, including a huge living room with a wood-burning fireplace, a library, an eat-in kitchen, two dining rooms (one formal, one informal—sure, why not), and it’s own private elevator entrance. There’s also a master suite—dressing room, en-suite bathroom, and office included, of course—with southwestern views.
The upper level has three more bedrooms, two of which share a bathroom; those are connected to the lower level via a lovely curved staircase.
And holy floorplan, Batman—check it, and more photos, out below.
