Literary Landmark with River Views
Perfectly positioned within the Upper East Side`s celebrated `Black and White` townhouses, this large two-bedroom, two-bath home offers tranquil privacy, a mews-like park setting, and river views at the very end of East 72nd Street. Unusually charming and home-like, the residence has recently undergone a high-quality, complete renovation; preserving and restoring 19th century period architectural details throughout, with plumbing and electrics updated to the 21st century.
This spacious floor-through offers a superior layout, the best in the building, and river views in both directions. Paneled doors in the gracious entry foyer open onto a marvelously inviting 24`x 18` living room with four oversized windows, southern exposures, and a wood-burning fireplace. Wide dark-colored hardwood flooring, high ceilings, and stylish polished nickel hardware throughout.
Gourmets will delight in the large, eat-in kitchen, with handcrafted cherry cabinetry, abundant honed white marble countertops, Sub Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, and vented gas range. The bedrooms are large and square with excellent light and open views. Both bathrooms are brand-new and beautifully realized, with European-style fixtures and marble mosaic tiles.
Located near Sotheby`s, this apartment seamlessly combines the old and new and offers an interesting alternative to the typical city apartment. Cooperative since 1973, the building amenities include storage, laundry, resident super and porter services. Pets are welcome !
