The third floor of 1107 Fifth Avenue, a 4,000-square-foot co-op with a 4,000-square-foot terrace, just hit the market for $29.5 million.

The 10-room apartment, at 92nd Street, is the top floor of what was originally the Marjorie Merriweather Post triplex, which was New York City’s largest apartment when it was built, in 1926, at 54 rooms, according to the listing. One of America’s earliest notable heiresses, Post was the first woman to sit on the board of a major corporation — General Foods.

A European aristocrat, Monique Uzielli (nee de Gunzburg) purchased the top floor in 1959, according to listing agent Armin Allen, a vice president at Brown Harris Stevens. City records do not date back far enough to verify the purchase. Uzielli died recently, in her late 90s, and the estate has put the apartment on the block, Allen said. The agent noted that the price “was the general consensus,” after a number of interviews, and that he and those he consulted looked towards the price for the Brooke Astor apartment, at 778 Park Avenue, (also a pre-war apartment near Central Park) when determining the asking price.

The four-bedroom, three-bathroom co-op offers 360-degree panoramic views, a private entrance and French Regence period carved oak.
