Description

SPACIOUS THREE BEDROOM HOME AT THE EMPIRE Welcome home to your new grand residence in the prime Lenox Hill/Upper East Side neighborhood perfectly located at 78th street on a charming block in between Lexington and Third. This gracious three bedroom three and a half bath home has it all. Entering into the formal gallery, you walk into a large living room and open dining room which is at the corner of the building which offers wonderful open views.

The kitchen is spacious and has a south facing Juliet balcony. There are three spacious bedrooms all with private ensuite bathrooms. The primary bedroom is a corner bedroom and offers a windowed ensuite bathroom.

This home has been freshly painted and is in move in ready condition. The Empire has staked its claim as the northern anchor of the top super-luxury condominiums along Third Avenue in the East 60’s and 70’s. The developer of the intimate building, which has approximately 72 apartments, was developed as a joint venture of Davis & Partners and RFR Holdings. The architectural firms of Hartman-Cox Architects were the designers of the project and the noted firm of Schuman Lichtenstein Clamon- Efron, who also designed 145 East 76th and The Sienna at 188 East 76th Street were the designers of the apartments’ elegant interiors.
