Description

This is the first time this Classic Seven is being offered in over 50 years. This high-floor, sun-flooded apartment boasts exposures to the south, east, and north, and views to the midtown skyline. Prewar details are everywhere you look, including the original wood burning fireplace, millwork, and 9'6" beamed ceilings.


After passing through the semi-private elevator vestibule, the gracious 20' entrance foyer opens up into the south facing living room with big city views. To the left is your formal dining room with seating for eight. The kitchen and home office are tucked behind the dining room and offer a great opportunity for a larger eat-in kitchen.

There are three large bedrooms, two of which enjoy the open south-facing views over protected townhouses, and two bathrooms.

All rooms feature high ceilings and wood flooring throughout. Storage transfers with the home.

This apartment needs TLC and has lots of potential.

Located in the heart of the Upper East Side, 170 East 79th Street residents enjoy world class museums, shopping and dining, all at their doorstep.

This intimate and elegant pre-war coop designed by renowned architect James E. Carpenter, built in 1926, includes a part-time doorman, live-in super, landscaped garden, bike storage and laundry room. Pets, washer and dryer in-unit, and thru-wall air conditioning are permitted with Board approval.

The building allows 50% financing and there is a 1.5% flip tax to be paid by the purchaser.
