From an English pine paneled library to an expansive master suite this apartment is a piece of perfection.

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Your Mama knows how all the children love a little floor plan pornography, so we thought we’d let y’all spend the afternoon hours poring over the luscious layout of the palatial penthouse at Manhattan’s 1040 Fifth Avenue, one of Manhattan’s most expensive and difficult to get into buildings.

The dooplex penthouse, perched atop the same quietly ritzy and obscenely expensive white glove building where American icon Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis lived (and died), is currently owned by zinc tycoon and bizness baron William (Bill) Flaherty and his wifey Clementina (Tina) Santi Flaherty, a sassy and accomplished bizness executive turned authoress. The high powered pair have put their 3 bedroom and 4.5 bathroom aerie (plus a staff room and bath located behind the gore-may kitchen) on the market with an eye popping asking price of $43,000,000 presumably as part of what the NY Observer recently called their “intricate divorce” proceedings.

The juicy and delectable layout is perfect for a couple who prefer not to share bathrooms, closet space or even bedrooms and given that overnight guests need to be wedged into the somewhat small guest room improbably tucked up behind the kitchen and adjacent to the dining room, they might prefer to be booked into the posh Pierre Hotel down the street.

Now then, before Your Mama leaves y’all to salivate, sweat and go green with financial envy, let’s run through the penthouse by the numbers: 2 floors; 12 rooms; 3 bedrooms; 4.5 bathrooms (plus 1 itty bitty staff room and bath); 4 fireplaces; 5 terraces; 20+ closets; and an almost inconceivable 21 points of access to the 5 terraces. The monthly maintenance is listed at $10,858 and any buyer who wants to be considered a buyer will need to fork over the entire purchase price in cold hard cash. That’s right puppies, no mortgages allowed at 1040 Fifth.

According to reports and records, the filthy rich Flahertys also own posh properties in Palm Beach, Pebble Beach (CA) and the Hamptons. Presumably each of these properties are up for grabs in the couple’s deevorce.
