535 East 72nd Street - Apt 2CD
Best Value - Seller Pays 3% Flip Tax! First time on the market in many years, this romantic pre-war two-bedroom, two bathroom pre-war floor-thru is ideally situated on the second floor of East 72nd Street's most iconic townhouse rows.
This charismatic 23' wide floor-through residence has been impeccably maintained, with structural and electrical upgrades. Freshly painted throughout, the huge living room has four tall thermopaned windows, gleaming hardwood floors, and an easily restorable woodburning fireplace. This south-facing space is filled with natural light, and enjoys soothing park, treetop and river views. The unusually large, square eat-in and fully-vented kitchen is a cook's delight and gathering place, with full-size gas range, dishwasher, and fridge. There are plentiful white Corian countertops, glass-fronted cabinets, and, best of all, a new Maytag side-by-side washer and dryer. The two large bedrooms also have oversized windows with northern exposures and water views. Every room has high ceilings, through-wall air conditioning, ceiling fans, and track lighting. Two full baths, custom-fitted closets and storage shelves, and second entrance complete the design.
The "Black and White" buildings date from 1894, and were gutted and reconfiigured in 1938 by Carmel Snow, the trendsetting editor of Harper's Bazaar. She and her husband were the first of a long line of notable residents, including important artists and writers. This second-floor walk-up apartment is one easy flight up, and offers an elegant hideaway from the urban hustle, with a host of neighborhood amenities. Two cobblestoned and landscaped parks are within steps of your front door. Live-in super accepts packages. There's also a bike room, central laundry room, and storage bins for rent. Pets are welcome!
Cooperative since 1973, the building is well-maintained and features include electronic fob entry. No guarantors, parents buying for kids, or pied a terres permitted. Serious seller pays the 3% flip tax!
