About 175 East 79th Street

Gracious and sophisticated, resplendent with impeccably restored original 1928 detail and timelessly updated for today's standards, Apartment 12B at 175 East 79th Street offers the opportunity to purchase a beautifully renovated and meticulously maintained pre-war Classic Six room home-generously proportioned, infused with lovely natural light, ideal for entertaining-in one of the most desirable locations on the Upper East Side.

Upon arrival at this truly elegant home situated on a high floor, a generous foyer leads you towards the glorious sun-filled, spacious 22-foot living room with oversized window facing south over 79th Street and city views. The working wood-burning fireplace with handsome black marble surround and fine carved dentil molding mantle anchors this impressive space, and is further complemented by handcrafted, built-in bookshelves, elegant 9.5-foot-high ceilings, abundant details such as wide baseboards, cove and crown moldings, and gleaming walnut-stained restored original solid oak floors. To the east is the grand formal dining room which also features fine custom millwork and easily accommodates dining for 10 in a most inviting and refined setting. This versatile room also works well as a library/media room.

The renovated, bright and cheerful eat-in kitchen is just beyond the dining room and features white lacquered custom solid wood cabinetry offering abundant storage and display space, a butler's pantry with full wet bar and wine fridge, stunning herringbone floors, and a breakfast room-the perfect windowed gathering spot for informal meals or a quiet spot to read the paper with a morning cappuccino. The convenient and discreet powder room is located just off the breakfast room. This flexible space may also be easily configured as a nanny's room or a third bedroom.

The private bedroom wing is separated from the formal spaces by a hallway leading to a beautiful primary suite comprised of a renovated windowed marble bathroom with dual vanity, and a king-sized bedroom with sun-drenched southern views and custom closets.

The sizable second bedroom also faces south over 79th Street and is well suited for a sumptuous study or guest room, with excellent storage. A second renovated, windowed full bathroom features an oversized glass-paneled step in shower and beautiful glazed porcelain tiling and pedestal sink.

The many features of this stunning home include through-wall HVAC for year-round comfort, immaculately preserved original details including wide baseboard, chair and picture rail moldings and polished brass fittings, skim-coated plaster walls & ceilings, refinished solid wood flooring, and many custom closets for all of your storage needs. The living room, Master Bedroom and second bedroom enjoy light and sun throughout the day. A truly grand home to cherish for many years of refined living and enjoyment.

175 East 79th Street is an elegant full-service pre-war co-operative designed by the highly regarded architectural firm of Schwartz & Gross, and offers the service and convenience of a 24-hour doorman and resident superintendent. Located in a superb location on 79th Street between Lexington and Third Avenues in the heart of the East Side, the building permits pieds-a-terre and subletting, is pet friendly and allows 70% financing.
