Sophisticated, charming and rarely available pre-war corner home right off of Fifth Avenue with a modest view of the western sky and Central Park!
After a morning run around the Central Park Reservoir, a game of tennis in the park or your favorite class at Equinox, pick up a cup of coffee at Starbucks or Le Pain Quotidien and come back home where you will enjoy an abundance of natural light all day! Unwind at the end of the day next to the wood-burning fireplace while watching the beautiful sunset in your favorite chair.
Enter into the openness of a welcoming kitchen featuring granite countertops and a large island, an abundance of cabinets with storage, many with frosted glass panels, top-of-the-line kitchen appliances (including a Franke sink and faucet, new Miele Futura Dimension dishwasher, DeLonghi gas stove with a double ring power burner, GE Fridge with bottom freezer, and a Samsung microwave and convection oven). This is a comfortable space and perfect for entertaining family and friends. The very large separate and quiet bedroom allows plenty of space for a desk, exercise area, and/or a king sized bed. Original pre-war details including gorgeous herringbone oak floors and high beamed ceilings and moldings complete the old-world charm which is abundant in this home. The apartment also offers truly ample storage, with four large closets and a large wardrobe in the bedroom.
Central Park, the Museum Mile, Butterfield Market, Fifth Avenue, Madison Avenue, and cross-town bus service are all at your doorstep, and a few short blocks away you will find the East Side subway lines, including the Lexington Avenue Express. The location is also convenient to many Upper East Side shops, restaurants, schools, houses of worship, and much more.
The beautiful and intimate nine story limestone, Renaissance style building was built in 1913 and designed by the notable James E.R. Carpenter. Highlights of this well run co-op building include a charming Art Deco lobby, two new fully automated elevators, a laundry room, dedicated storage, as well as a live-in super who accepts packages, deliveries, mail and delivers them to your door.
Pets (dogs under 60 lbs. when fully grown) are welcome, and pied-à-terres are allowed. 75% financing is allowed and 2% flip tax paid by the purchaser.
