The top three floors of Phillip Maher's 1301 N Astor once housed the Potter Palmer, Jr. clan, after Palmer vacated his parent's LSD castle in 1928. That seems a good introduction to the princeliness of this fourth floor unit. This co-op is sized like some of the other non-duplexed units on floors 2-12, with roughly 3,400 square feet, three beds, and three baths. The similarities end there, as Maher allowed each original buyer to bring in architects/designers to customize their spaces. David Adler was commissioned for this puppy, and practically all of his original details have been preserved: wide plank flooring; arched doorways; ornate bathrooms; library; built-in shelving; and fireplace. Obviously, the kitchen has been modernized. And we're not so sure about the lineage of those mirror walls. If there's an objection, it's to the cluttering of the living room. That may be period furniture, but by golly there's a lot of it. New-to-market, the asking price is $2.85M with assessments of $4,621.
