Prewar perfection! An exceptionally gracious home or picture perfect pied-a-terre! This 2-bedroom residence is located in a beautiful 1923-built cooperative ideally situated just off Lexington Avenue in the heart of the Upper East Side, on a historic tree-lined block replete with magnificent mid-19th to early 20th century architecture, and just one block away from the 72nd Street corridor for the utmost in convenience. One enters the quiet, high-floor home into a gracious foyer before progressing into the home's main living area, which is enhanced by a stunning fireplace framed in Italian marble, 9-foot beamed ceilings, and the stunning strip hardwood floors one finds throughout the residence.
The home's open windowed kitchen has been elegantly renovated with gleaming granite countertops, recessed lighting, custom cabinetry, and all stainless steel appliances including a Sub-Zero fridge, Viking Professional range, range hood, dishwasher, and undercounter microwave. The kitchen's dining peninsula can comfortably accommodate barstools, making it ideal for casual dining. Before the kitchen was expanded to its current dimensions, it contained an additional half bathroom, which could be restored if one wished.
Both of the home's extremely generously sized bedrooms face south, boast lovely city views, and are flooded with natural light. Elegant solid-wood dual doors lead one into the second bedroom (pictured as an oversize den/sitting room), and these could easily be replaced with French doors (seller will provide) if one wished to allow the southern sunlight to stream through. The master bedroom boasts extremely generous closet space, all of which has been custom outfitted to maximize its utility.
The home's windowed bathroom is amply sized and has been tastefully renovated with recessed lighting and new fixtures and fittings including a hinged glass shower partition. The home is further enhanced by through-wall air conditioning in all rooms, disguised by attractive enclosures that also incorporate additional storage.
155 East 73rd Street is a pet-friendly prewar cooperative that permits up to 75% financing. Residents enjoy an elegant lobby, updated hallways, only four apartments per floor, part-time doorman Thursday-Monday 3:00PM-11:00PM, live-in superintendent, new elevator, complimentary bike storage, and modernized laundry room. The building is just three blocks from Central Park, close to all transportation, and surrounded by the best shopping, dining, and cultural attractions that the Upper East Side has to offer!
