1 of 10
A gorgeous example of an Upper East Side Classic 6, Apartment. 5A has all of its classic, pre-war heritage fully intact. From the moment you enter the gracious entry hall with a large Cedar closet and a secondary coat closet you know that you are in a rare gem of an apartment.
The oversized living room is complete with a working wood-burning fireplace, custom built-in book cases and lower storage and three large south facing picture windows with clear views over the townhouses and trough the tree tops. The nod to modern day living is the living room has been opened seamlessly to the formal dining room and creates a wonderful expanse of entertaining space.
The long and wide butler's pantry leads to a windowed galley kitchen. An original maid's room is located between the kitchen and dining room with a vented washer & dryer located in the 3rd bath. The W/D is grandfathered in and allowed to stay. This room could easily be a third bedroom or office. Alternatively this space can be opened up to create a grand eat in kitchen.
In the bedroom hall are two more large closets and a hall bathroom. The 2 large south facing bedrooms each have great closet space! The master has an en-suite bath and is tremendous.
163 East 81st Street is a boutique pre-war Co-op with four apartments per floor. There is a 24-hour doorman and live-in resident manager. The building is pet friendly and pieds-a-terre are considered on a case by case basis. There is a 2% flip tax paid by purchaser. Convenient to great restaurants, transportation and all that the Upper East Side has to offer. This is truly a special building on a lovely quite tree lined block.
