Description

*s are BY APPOINTMENT ONLY!*

Incredible value in a full-service building just off of Park Avenue, blocks from Central Park. HUGE converted 2 bedroom that is ready for move-in.

You will be awe-struck by the sheer amount of space that apartment 3D offers. The living room is massive, offering an excellent layout for both living and dining.

You can cook to your heart's delight with a kitchen that has been outfitted with abundant crisp white cabinetry and expansive countertop space. Your master bedroom is most definitely fit for a king, spanning nearly 19 feet! It affords plenty of furnishing options, including room for a home office.

The second, windowed bedroom could also be used as the same, or perhaps a lovely guest room or nursery. All rooms have HVAC unit temperature controls. A marble bath with glass shower stall and excellent vanity storage completes the picture here.

The apartment is pin-drop quiet and also offers FIVE phenomenal closets. Should you need a washer/dryer, the building allows for their installation.

136 East 56th Street is a full-service building located between Park and Lexington Avenues. Amenities include: 24 hour doorman and conierge services, live-in super, laundry, bike storage, and in-building parking garage that offers a discount rate to shareholders.

The building recently completed a new limestone facade restoration and is currently doing a full renovation of the hallways and lobby (with NO assessment). Pet friendly, and the Board allows co-purchasing, guarantors, parental purchases and pied a terre use. Subletting allowed after 2 years of ownership.

Apartment photos are virtually staged.

Building photos represent renderings of the common area renovations. The completed result may vary slightly from renderings.
