Description

Grand and gracious, this wonderful simplex apartment benefits from an expansive and versatile layout as well as high-floor outlooks in four directions. The residence is light-filled and graced with wonderful proportions, beautiful hardwood floors, and very high ceilings. From a private elevator landing, a most impressive 30-foot Gallery opens to an exceedingly large and light-filled corner Living Room with a wood-burning fireplace and the added benefit of a corner alcove, ideal for a grand piano or an intimate seating arrangement, as well as outlooks in three directions.

Adjacent, the splendid Dining Room offers lovely northern views over a double-width street. The Entertaining Rooms also include a handsome, well-proportioned, wood-paneled Library with a decorative fireplace and, at the opposite end of the Gallery, a south-facing, sun-filled Sitting Room with captivating cityscape outlooks. A Powder Room and coat closet are conveniently accessible.

Beyond, a streamlined and modern white Kitchen, supported by a convenient pantry, is open to a generous Great Room with plenty of space for casual gatherings and dining. Nearby, there is a large Bedroom, a bathroom, and a Laundry Room. The private quarters include a very lovely Primary Bedroom Suite comprised of a large corner Bedroom with a gas fireplace and wonderfully bright eastern and southern outlooks, a nearby Sitting Room, two very ample walk-in closets, and two bathrooms. There are also three additional Bedrooms, two with ensuite bathrooms.

One of these, currently configured as a Office, is extremely generously proportioned, has a wood burning fireplace, and wraps the southwest corner of the building, offering marvelous views above the city. Nearby, there is a room that provides very convenient storage. Built in 1928 by renowned architect Francis Burrell Hoffman, 136 East 79th Street is a full-service, white-glove cooperative with a 24-hour doorman and a resident manager. The building’s amenities include bicycle and wine storage, a private fitness center, and a lovely landscaped garden on the ground floor.

The apartment has two very large storage bins that transfer with the sale. Perfectly located in the very heart of the Upper East Side, this wonderful residence is convenient to many of the city’s best schools, museums, restaurants and shops and to the idyllic pleasures of Central Park.
