Description

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE FOR THE VIRTUAL TOUR OF THE APARTMENT! With its gorgeous updates, spacious floor plan and triple-exposure sunlight, this converted three-bedroom, two-bathroom co-op is a move-in ready Yorkville haven. Thanks to a recent renovation, this approximately 1,400-square-foot home features outstanding finishes and storage throughout. Tall ceilings and oak floors guide you through the long gallery entryway filled with tons of closet space, including a laundry area with a Bosch washer-dryer. The spectacular corner living space allows for generous seating and dining areas surrounded by soaring beamed ceilings, built-ins and custom lighting.

Chefs will love the meticulously updated open kitchen featuring rows of sleek walnut cabinetry, handsome tilework and premium appliances, including a Bertazzoni gas range, Liebherr refrigerator, a dishwasher and built-in microwave. Bedrooms are positioned along the western wing where they enjoy fantastic light and open-sky views, and bathrooms boast gleaming tiles and modern fixtures. Currently configured as a two-bedroom plus nursery, this home could easily revert back to its original two-bedroom layout. York Towers is a postwar cooperative offering full-time doorman service, live-in superintendent, laundry, bike room, a roof deck and on-site parking garage.

Pets and pieds--terre permitted, and low-maintenance includes utilities. This beautiful building features updated lobby and hallways and is undergoing facade repairs for which there is a temporary assessment of $663.75 per month. *Electric is included in the maintenance.* From this commanding position on the corner of York and 79th, you're surrounded by plentiful Yorkville amenities and spectacular outdoor space. Foodies will love the direct access to Morton Williams, Agata & Valentina, Dorian Seafood Market and the revered Ottomanelli Bros.

Butcher Shop. Wonderful Carl Schurz Park, John Jay Park and the East River promenade invite waterfront leisure and recreation, and transportation from this Upper East Side enclave is unbeatable with Q and 4/5/6 trains nearby plus fantastic bus service.
