They're here...official listings the floor plans for all three of Huguette Clark's apartments at 907 Fifth Avenue.
An almost ludicrously grand 47-plus foot long reception gallery and a discreet service corridor link the two wings of the approximately 5,000 square foot spread that includes six—six!—public rooms: entrance gallery, reception room, formal living and dining rooms, library, and small conservatory/solarium.
The floor plans shows three fireplaces (living, dining, library), two principal bedrooms, three surprisingly spacious staff rooms and a real damn dearth of bathrooms for an apartment of this magnitude and price. Our boozy eyeballs count just one shared facility in the service wing and another wedged Jack-and-Jill-style between the two bedrooms. In it's current configuration, a guest must tinkle where the staff squats or traipse through one of the bedrooms in order to wash their hands or do their dirty business.
The floor plan reveals a 37-plus foot long entrance gallery (with adjoining powder room and wet bar), a 400-plus square foot living room with fireplace, a library/bedroom also with fireplace plus a private bath, and an unexpectedly small formal dining room and, for an apartment this size, a positively puny kitchen.
A humongous park view master suite includes a private entry vestibule, a 400-plus square foot sitting room, three walk-in closets, two (windowed) bathrooms, and corner bedroom with corner fireplace and what appears to be a wet bar, the perfect amenity for late night and early morning tippers like Your Mama.
Staff accommodations in 8W include a double-wide bedroom with access to a hall bathroom and another usually generous at the extreme rear of the apartment with direct access to a private (and windowed) bathrooms.
Separately the 8th floor apartments are both—quirks and all—extraordinarily spacious for New York City. A combined, full-floor residence—should the board allow it—would be beyond epic and likely worth much more than the current combined asking price of $31,000,000.
listing information, $14,382.
Like both of her 8th floor apartments, 12W also has a bowling alley-like entrance gallery, a 400-plus square foot living room with fireplace, and a formal dining room (also with fireplace). The New York Times reported, "Many of the rooms were decorated in ornate Louis XVI style" and listing information states there are 11-foot ceilings, stone door surrounds, linen-fold panel doors, herringbone pattern hardwood floors, and ornate, Louis XVI-style moldings.
Two of the four rooms labeled as bedrooms on the floor plan have private (windowed) bathrooms—one bedroom with corner fireplace—and the two other bedrooms—one with fireplace and private sitting room—share a (windowed) Jack-and-Jill-type of bathroom. There's an additional sitting room off the long bedroom corridor and a small study just off the entrance gallery.
The service areas include an L-shaped pantry, kitchen, breakfast room (with service entrance) and three prison cell-sized staff bedrooms that share one (windowed) bathroom.
Now that they're out there on the open market we suspect there will be a swarm of interested parties. Anyone willing to predict how quickly (or slowly) they'll sell and at what prices?
Many thanks to all the childre—who know who you are—who sent Your Mama links to the listings and the various updated reports on the matter.
