For Sale: Childhood Home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
A Park Avenue apartment that was the childhood home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is on the market for $44 million. The art deco-style building was developed by the former first lady's grandfather, and she lived in the apartment on the sixth and seventh floors of 740 Park Ave. while she was in elementary school in New York City. Hedge fund investor David Ganek and his wife, a novelist, are selling the Manhattan apartment following an insider-trading scandal at Ganek's firm, the New York Post reported.
The glamorous, historic apartment in a landmark building has four bedrooms and six bathrooms. The marble entryway includes an elegant staircase, and the entertaining floor houses a library and living room facing Park Avenue. Upstairs, there is an expansive master suite with two marble bathrooms and dressing rooms, plus three other bedrooms with en-suite baths.
The apartment is recently renovated, and listing photos offer a peek at the current owners' art collection.
Serena Boardman, Jeremy V. Stein and Robin Stein hold the listing at Sotheby's International Realty.
