Featuring 4 well-proportioned bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, library/formal dining room, and an expansive windowed eat-in kitchen with separate breakfast area. This duplex is located in a sought-after, full-service building with bike room, 24-hour staff, laundry room and private storage cage. A semi-private landing opens into a long spacious entry gallery, welcoming you into this meticulously maintained home, with an airy living room, separate formal dining room designed with a hidden custom bar and wine storage behind large wood paneled doors. With bright north exposure, high 10 ft beamed ceilings, built in bookcases and a functioning wood-burning fireplace creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere make for an ideal setting for entertaining. The expanded, white, windowed eat-in kitchen is a chef's dream. Thoughtfully designed with a separate breakfast area, new hard wood floors, honed Calcutta gold countertops, custom cabinetry and endless storage. It is fully equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, including a Subzero refrigerator, two Subzero refrigerator drawers, Viking 6 burner stove top with grill and double oven paired with a custom designed stainless steel industrial vent. A Miele dishwasher and built-in Kitchen-Aid Microwave top off the high-end appliances. There is a built-in banquet with even more storage underneath and behind making this the perfect cook's kitchen for entertaining a large crowd. Through the formal dining room, currently set up as a den/media room, is a hallway leading to the powder room, and two bedrooms each with its own bath. The primary suite has north, and west windows features two large walk-in closets and a spa-like windowed bathroom. This peaceful retreat has limestone floors with radiant heat, a separate glass-enclosed shower stall and a huge custom picture mirror. The second bedroom on the main level has a large closet and bath with marble tiled floor, white subway tile shower and a large north facing window. As you ascend the stairs you will face a wall of closets lining the hallway with a vented- out, closed in washer/dryer at one end. There are two additional bedrooms each with its own private bathroom. Each bedroom has abundant closet space and west facing large windows. With built-in speakers throughout, exquisite crown and baseboard moldings and high end finishes this residence is a wonderful place to call home. 156 East 79th Street is a premiere pre-war building constructed in 1915 and converted to coop in 1967. Its exterior is a limestone and brick facade with an elegant lobby. It offers its residents a full array of services by an attentive staff, including 24-hour doorman, service elevator operators, and a live-in resident manager. Amenities include bicycle storage room, large storage cages, and a large common laundry room. The co-op is pet and pied-a-terre friendly.
The building is in the final stages of completing Local Law 11 (brick work) and has just replaced both the passenger and service elevators. A complete renovation of the lobby included fresh paint, new floors, new furniture and new lighting and new art.
