Description

Create THE Perfect Classic 6 This classic 6 room residence offers a wonderful opportunity to create the perfect home in an ideal location. Gracious pre war details include a thoughtful layout, well-proportioned rooms, high ceilings, elegant 8 over 8 windows, original hardwood floors in beautiful condition and a wood burning fireplace. From a semi-private elevator landing, enter a proper foyer which opens into a light living room anchored by a wood-burning fireplace. A classic archway flanked by custom bookshelves, leads into a lovely, square shaped dining room large enough for entertaining or hosting holiday dinners.

A bright windowed kitchen with pantry and flex room with half bath could be combined and transformed into an elegant eat-in kitchen with office/guest room and full bath. In-unit washer/dryers are also permitted with board approval. The private quarters are separated from the entertaining space by a long hallway.

The large primary bedroom can accommodate a king bed and accompanying furniture and has a walk-in closet as well as an en-suite windowed bathroom. The second bedroom, a corner with dual exposures, includes two closets and is served by a sizable hall bathroom which can double as a powder room for guests. 53 East 66th Street is an established full service cooperative built in 1923, by noted architect Mott B.

Schmidt (who also designed 1088 Park Avenue and 19 East 72nd Street). This incredible Upper East Side location is a block and a half from Central Park and close to the city’s finest restaurants and shops. Shareholders have access to a gym, and private storage transfers with the sale.

The building allows up to 33% financing and there is a 2% flip tax to be paid by the buyer. Pied a terres and pets are permitted. Note: Some images have been digitally staged.
