Orthopaedic Surgeon Pays $3.55M For 5th Ave Co-op
Dr. Robert Haar, a board-certified Orthopaedic Surgeon with a specialty in sports medicine, just paid $3,550,000 for a ‘7 into 6′ room pre-war co-op apartment at 880 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.
The surgeon paid $250,000 less than the original $3.8 million list price when the apartment was first on the market in April 2009.
Dr. Haar now has one of the best commutes that a New Yorker could ever dream about.>
Of course, a Stribling broker had the exclusive for the Weeks-Rekant co-op. Stribling VP Shel Joblin had the listing for his colleague.
This spacious apartment was essentially a 2,220 sq. ft. 1-bedroom co-op with an enourmous living room overlooking Fifth Avenue.
An ideal entertaining space for empty nesters, or single folks who entertain, the cooperative also features a huge gallery next to the entry foyer, and a 16-foot wide dining room.
The beautiful, gleaming white kitchen has a breakfast room, and the maid’s room makes for a perfect home office.
880 Fifth is not a pet-friendly co-op for dog owners. The listing emphatically stated that “[d]ogs [are] not permitted.”
For $3.55 million, Dr. Haar also gets the privilege of using a washer and dryer in his apartment.
