Key Details

Description

ELEGANT TWO BEDROOM - Prewar Cooperative
History and Architecture
125 East 74th Street, situated mid block on this quiet tree-lined street between Park and Lexington, was built in the neo – Italian Renaissance style by renowned architect Lafayette A. Goldstone from 1927-1928 and became a cooperative in the 1950's. Best known for his work at 640 Park Avenue and 730 Park Avenue, his design of this nine-story apartment building replaced three row houses.

With its one-story rusticated limestone base, Corinthian style inlaid limestone pillars reaching to the third floor and iron balconies on the second floor, Lafayette’s design seamlessly blended into this Italianate and neo-Grec style row-house block. Unfortunately many of the original row houses have either been demolished or stripped of their original detail. A number of them were taken down to allow for the arrival of the prestigious Buckley School.

The Episcopal Church of the Resurrection, still remains and retains its beautiful Victorian Gothic style. It's interesting to note that Jacqueline Bouvier "Jackie O" spent her early years living at 125 East 74th Street before going off to private school as a teenager.
The Residence
Situated on the sixth floor, the apartment offers wonderful south light overlooking the elegant townhouses below. The living room, part of the architect's originally designed eight-room, has oversized proportions for its current five-room layout.

Three extraordinary windows let the light pour into this 20’ by 18’ room and a working wood-burning fireplace adds to its regal air. The dining room opens to the living room and is adorned with elegant lit bookshelves, which could lend it to being a combined library/Dining room. The master bedroom, also south facing, has epic proportions, as it was the dining room in the architect's original plan.

An additional bedroom/home office, a renovated kitchen and windowed bath complete the space. High ceilings, extraordinary light, wonderful hardwood floors throughout and an elegant layout make this the perfect full-time residence or Pied-a-Terre. Full service 24hr doorman building with, live-in superintendent, bike room and laundry.

FURNISHINGS ALSO AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE - 2% Flip Tax Paid by Buyer
