Description

RENOVATED PREWAR COOP with 3+ BEDROOMS, SPECTACULAR VIEWS & TERRACE

Welcome to apartment 10B in the prestigious prewar coop, 136 East 79th Street, located between Park and Lexington Avenues. This elegant and sophisticated apartment wows from the moment you enter its marble entry foyer.

With approximately 2,910 square feet, its scale is grand and welcoming. The apartment was completely renovated and features a new kitchen with marble countertops, marble bathrooms, and central air conditioning.

Although completely renovated, the home retains its prewar heritage and architectural details abound such as magnificent crown moldings, arched doorways, beamed ceilings and a private elevator vestibule.

Perhaps the apartment’s most remarkable feature is its rare south-facing terrace with its sunny, wide-open views of the city’s skyline. The terrace is off the paneled library (which can be another bedroom), and is adjacent to the apartment’s entry foyer. There is a magnificent living room with over 10 foot tall ceilings, a wood burning fireplace and floor-to-ceiling south-facing French doors with spectacular views.

The formal dining room has a custom banquette typical of French bistros in Paris, also with sunny southern exposures, and a renovated kitchen and pantry. At the far end is a home office or guest bedroom, powder room and laundry.

The apartment features an incredible corner primary suite comprised of 2 bedrooms, one which is now a wonderful dressing room, a stunning marble bathroom with a stand up shower and separate soaking tub, plus a second bathroom which also acts as a powder room off the library. Lastly there is another bedroom and full bath on this wing of the apartment.

136 East 79th Street is renowned for its staff and service.

It was built in 1928 by by the celebrated architect Francis Burrall Hoffman, later becoming a cooperative in 1949. There are just 25 apartments on 14 floors in this full-service, white-glove building. This is a pet-friendly building, and amenities include a garden on the ground floor, fitness center, bike room, storage bin and wine storage.

50% financing is permitted and there is a 3% flip tax, payable by the seller. The building is located on one of the best crosstown blocks on the Upper East Side, and is convenient to transportation, museums, shopping and many of Manhattan’s finest restaurants.
