Jacqueline Onassis' childhood apartment sells for $34 million (Gallery)
A 12-room apartment on Manhattan's famed Park Avenue has just sold for $34 million. The pedigreed pad, as it turns out, was the childhood home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis whose grandfather was behind the construction of 740 Park Avenue in 1929.
James T. Lee, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' grandfather, was a prolific NYC developer, and gifted a residence on the sixth and seventh floors to his daughter Janet and her husband John V. Bouvier.
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis lived there with her parents, and her sister Lee, between the ages of two to seven.
The art-filled interiors of the apartment were recently updated by Fox-Nahem. Listing details show the 2042 square metre residence includes four bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms plus a staff wing behind the kitchen with two tiny bedrooms and another bathroom.
In addition to this Park Avenue condo, Jackie O spent her childhood summers at an East Hampton estate that was owned by her other grandfather, John Vernou Bouvier Jr.
It's currently on the market for $47.5 million. Outside of NYC, she lived in the Washington, D.C. suburb of McLean, Virginia at the Merrywood Estate, also currently for sale for $68 million.
