Upon stepping out of the elevator on the SECOND FLOOR into your own private vestibule, you already know a grand apartment awaits behind a glass-paneled front door. The gracious entrance gallery leads to all the major rooms- but most impressive are the corner living room and dining room with their towering 10 + ceiling heights, huge 6 x 5 feet windows overlooking 72nd Street and the trees. The living room has original herringbone floors, a fireplace and through French doors is the grand dining room.
It is no wonder this coop sees so little turnover in its apartments- this apartment has been lovingly cared for by the same family for many years!The bedrooms are all quietly located on their own hallway peppered with closets and separated from the entertainment rooms. The corner Master bedroom could be its own suite and had two walk-in closets and nice light. The second bedroom is currently configured as a home office but easily fits a queen or twin beds. The third bedroom shares a bathroom with the library/fourth bedroom. The library has handsome built-ins and an old-fashioned ladder and sunny south facing window. Originally a 9 room apartment with two maids rooms, the kitchen has been opened up to make a huge eat-in kitchen that fits an additional dining table. The kitchen still has a maid's room/ office with a powder room. The butler's pantry provides endless storage, the original glass cabinetry, and a washer/dryer. The whole apartment spans almost 100 feet from front to back! Central air-conditioning is allowed and there are no summer work rules. The apartment comes with its own private storage.
