A condominium in the New York City townhouse where Gloria Vanderbilt spent her childhood is about to come on the market. Scroll down to see inside the apartment comprising the top three floors of 39 East 72nd Street.

Vanderbilt, now 94, moved into the townhouse as a newborn in 1924.


Her father, Reginald Vanderbilt, had lived there before he met her mother, the heiress and designer told the Wall Street Journal. "He lived there during the winter months and, when summer came, moved to his house Sandy Point Farm in Newport, where he had a huge stable," Vanderbilt said.

Reginald Vanderbilt died the following year.


After his death, Gloria inherited a multimillion-dollar trust fund and moved to Paris with her mother.

The current owners purchased the home for $19 million in 2014, property records show.


A partnership of developers, they renovated the single-family home and converted it into three condominiums.

The triplex has 5,700 square feet of interior space.


And roughly 1,522 square feet of terraces.

There are four bedrooms.


And four full bathrooms.


Here's the minimalist kitchen.


For about $30 million, it could be yours.


Meanwhile, the other two units in the townhouse are expected to sell for about $16 million and $14 million, respectively.
