This sun-drenched and truly grand, prewar classic six-room home enjoys a prime Upper East Side location one block from Park Avenue and surrounded by conveniences and all the best the neighborhood has to offer. Wonderfully situated on a high floor, this impressive-scaled apartment features huge, south-facing windows over 79th Street and fabulous city views. Preserved old-world details throughout includes 9 ½’-high, beamed ceilings with cove and crown moldings, a decorative, exposed brick fireplace and beautifully maintained hardwood floors. The gracious and well-proportioned layout includes a very expansive 24’ living room, elegant formal dining room, two spacious and bright bedrooms, a windowed kitchen with butler’s pantry and laundry room, two renovated baths, a large formal entry foyer and generous closet storage throughout. The beautifully proportioned living room features a decorative fireplace with exposed brick, high-beamed ceilings and massive original casement windows that frame big south-facing city views with an oblique view of the exquisite architecture of the Carlyle pinnacle. The windowed, formal dining room is very spacious and can easily accommodate entertaining on a large-scale with access to the foyer, kitchen and bedroom wing. The eat-in kitchen features great light from its west-facing window and is fully equipped with a commercial South Bend 6-burner gas range oven with professional hood, two dishwashers (Bosch and GE), two sinks and Blomberg refrigerator. Well-maintained thick wood counters are abundant for working and casual dining with a breakfast bar. The original staff room was opened and is now a windowed, laundry room with full-size washer and dryer and floor-to-ceiling cabinet storage. Traditional to prewar appeal, both the bedrooms are separate from the formal spaces. The master bedroom, a bright and spacious room that faces south boasts plenty of natural light, contains two double deep closets, and a renovated en-suite bath with walk-in shower. The spacious second bedroom also boasts southern views and offers a deep closet and beautiful, built-in day bed with a renovated, full bathroom adjacent. Bountiful closet storage can be also found in the shared resident hallway. This beautiful classic home is truly grand, has been impeccably maintained and positioned in an elegant full-service prewar building in a superb East Side location. 175 East 79th Street is an elegant, full-service prewar building erected in 1929 and designed by Schwartz & Gross, preeminent architects of the era in New York. The building offers great service with a full-time doorman and live-in superintendent. Pieds-a-terre, subletting and pets are permitted. No flip tax and the building now allows 70% financing.
