Embrace glorious light and air in this sophisticated one-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex penthouse in a historic co-op building.


Designer details, soaring ceilings and abundant new windows combine to create an elegant, light-filled haven perfect as a pied--terre or full-time home.

Dark-stained hardwood floors and ceilings that rise 18 feet high invite you to relax in the large living room featuring northern exposures, handsome built-ins and a decorative marble fireplace. There's ample room for sitting and dining areas, and the adjacent windowed kitchen dazzles with sleek glass-front cabinetry and top-notch stainless steel appliances, including a vented gas range, French door refrigerator and dishwasher. A full guest bathroom adds convenience to the main level.


Ascend the spiral staircase to find a bright mezzanine area ideal as a home office.

The spacious bedroom enjoys eastern light and open sky views and offers a massive walk-in closet and a separate entrance. The well-appointed en suite bathroom on this level features a walk-in rain shower, open shelving and floor-to-ceiling stone. Updated windows and fixtures throughout make this a home of distinction and style in the heart of Lenox Hill.


61 East 77th Street is a brick and limestone masterpiece with handsome Beaux-Arts detailing.

Built in 1916, the building once housed the Finch School. Today, residents of the pet-friendly cooperative enjoy part-time doorman service, live-in superintendent and liberal board policies that permit pieds--terre, subletting, parents buying for children and co-purchasing. Maintenance is 70 percent tax-deductible.


Situated within the Upper East Side Historic District, this outstanding Lenox Hill location marries residential tranquility with total accessibility.

The delights of Central Park and the Museum Mile are just a block away, world-class shopping awaits along Madison Avenue, and fantastic dining and nightlife venues line the nearby blocks. The 4/5/6 and Q trains and great bus service are within easy reach.


Please note a special assessment of $499.82 for the building's exterior restoration is payable each month until June 2021 in addition to the monthly maintenance.
