Live in Harry Winston’s Former Fifth Avenue Apartment

… All you’ll need is a cool $32.5 million and enough left over to cover the maintenance, which is a tad over $21,000 per month (as well as the 2.5% flip tax which is paid by the buyer).

According to WWD, the famed jeweler owned the fourteen room, 5,750 square foot apartment on the ninth floor of 927 Fifth Avenue from 1950 until 1976 – two years before his death – when he sold the apartment to the current owner, art collector Judith Hernstadt.

The listing – which is being marketed by Louise Beit of Sotheby’s International Realty – states that Winston “entertained up to 100 guests at legendary parties in the apartment.”

The six-bedroom, five-bath apartment comes with 55′ of Central Park frontage and dramatic park views, all four exposures through 27 oversized windows, four fireplaces, a private elevator landing, spacious entrance gallery, herringbone floors and 10’6″ ceilings.

The apartment also comes with its own 19′ x 15′ library filled with built-in bookshelves and wood paneling.
