Located in one of the city’s premier neighborhoods, this boutique, pre-war, pet-friendly elevator building, on a wide but quiet street between Park and Madison Avenues, gives you access to everything you need. The perfect pied-a-terre or first home, this rarely-available high-ceiling 2 BR/1.5 BA apartment is a gem ready for your particular polish.
With ceilings that soar to more than 10 feet, you’re welcomed into the ample living room of the pin-drop quiet home that features a tasteful marble-clad half bathroom. With your kitchen discreetly tucked behind the main room, there is more than enough space to elegantly entertain your guests or just enjoy this serene getaway in the heart of the Upper East Side.
Down the gallery hallway is your separated living quarters. The primary bedroom, which can fit a king-size bed, is preceded by a well-proportioned second bedroom, with the option of turning the bedrooms and bathroom into an enormous single suite. The apartment configuration, unique to the building, is flexible enough to accommodate a range of creative visions. Virtually staged photos of the living room and primary bedroom appear before the current iterations.
Only steps from your door are all the benefits of the Upper East Side. Situated just two blocks from Central Park, there is ready access to luxury shopping and dining on Madison Avenue. On Fifth Avenue’s Museum Mile you’ll find the wide range of museums from the Frick to the Metropolitan to the Guggenheim and beyond. Nearby to the east, all the key amenities of city living are readily available: shopping, restaurants, banks, and nightlife. Transportation options abound: within a few blocks are the 6 and Q trains, four uptown and downtown bus lines, and the crosstown M72. The area is also extremely convenient to many of New York’s top public and private schools.
The building, which has recently completed repointing as well as renovations to windows, hallways, and the elevators, is pied-a-terre friendly and welcomes cats and small dogs. 75% financing is allowed and seller pays the 2% flip tax. There are washers/dryers in the basement and the apartment also comes with a private storage locker downstairs. A monthly assessment of $302.84 runs through the end of 2021.
