Apartment 4A at 156 East 79th Street is a stunning example of an eight room- now six room, two-bedroom prewar home, meticulously constructed with the finest materials and millwork ensuring the most gracious of layouts for luxurious living.
You are welcomed into a 15' Gallery that leads to magnificent front facing living room with bay window, high ceilings and a woodburning fireplace. The former formal dining room is now a most inviting library- the perfect escape from the city for quiet repose with a built-in hidden television and bar. At the end of the private bedroom wing is a double master bedroom with two full bathrooms- and a truly decadent proper dressing room with endless storage and hand-built wardrobe storage with impeccable craftsmanship and even features a built-in vanity table with flattering lighting. The larger of the en-suite bathrooms rivals the most luxurious fine hotel suite wrapped in stunning marble with a soaking tub wide marble vanity. A most charming guest room or study completes the suites of front facing rooms.
The showpiece kitchen rivals that of a country-house- three rooms were combined to make one enormous space for large scale entertaining, professional grade cooking, meal prep, and a lovely dining space for 6-8. Complete with top-line appliances such as a Wolf double oven range and vented hood, Subzero refrigerator, capacious island with seating and microwave- Bosch dishwasher- service exit- and an in-unit Washer/Dryer. This is truly the kitchen of one's dreams.
There is central AC throughout this magnificent home, in-wall speakers-discreet lighting- and double glazed city windows for whisper-quiet, dust-free living. An elegant and discreet powder room is conveniently located for guests.
156 East 79th Street is a long-established, well-managed, pre-war co-operative with 24 hour doormen, a brand-new refurbished marble lobby, porters and a resident building manager. Basement facilities include a laundry room, bike room, assigned storage cage and access to a paved courtyard. The building is pet friendly and allows 50% financing. This ideal location on the corner of 79th/Lexington puts you just three blocks away from Central Park and Museum Mile; a short distance to Eli's, Butterfield Market, Citarella, and a vast range of restaurants, shops and galleries; two blocks to the Number 6 Lenox Hill/77th Street subway stop and moments away from crosstown or uptown/downtown limited and local bus service. There is currently an assessment through January 2022 for $452 per month, and a capital assessment through December 2021 for $1,001 per month.
