531 E 72nd St - Apt 1-ACD - Estate Sale - Excellent Value
Situated in a picturesque townhouse row on East 72nd Street overlooking the East River, this rambling Upper East Side Estate offers inspiring, flexible space, open views, and many charming original details. Occupying three-quarters of the desirable ground floor, it is house-like and reminiscent of a mansion-width maisonette. Currently configured as a 23' long Living/Dining room with high ceilings, a working wood-burning fireplace, and tall, oversized windows, a bedroom used as a libary/den, another large bedroom, and two full baths. This connects to a renovated loft-like open studio space, with it's own full bath, three large south-facing windows, and oblique river views. Currently used for work, it would easily convert to an luxurious master suite, in-law quarters, or two additional bedrooms. Tons of natural light. Altogether, there are three full windowed bathrooms, a large entry foyer, two secondary entrances, a delightful windowed galley kitchen, 9.5" high ceilings, excellent closets, high-quality built-ins, and beautiful hard wood floors. Washer/Dryer allowed and can be added.

Resident building manager accepts packages. Pet friendly. Electronic key fob entry, storage bins available for rent, bike room and central laundry. Buyer pays 3% flip tax. Appealingly atypical and must be seen. Shown by appointment.
