Paris in NY! This one-of-a-kind spacious one-bedroom prewar apartment designed by Gary Faccone has been masterfully renovated and is the perfect combination of timeless charm and comfortable elegance. Fabulously located in a sought-after full-service prewar cooperative on a tree-lined block in the heart of the Upper East Side, this beautifully proportioned and sophisticated home is replete with high quality finishes and has been praised for its decorative details: custom wallpaper and draperies, artful millwork, and designer light fixtures. The charming entry foyer flows into the oversized square living/dining room, replete with wood-burning fireplace, high beamed ceilings, and refinished hardwood floors. Boasting lovely natural sunlight from a wall of windows, this oversized room offers flexible use of the space with multiple seating, dining, and work-from-home options. The bright windowed chef's kitchen boasts custom cabinetry, marble countertops, and top of the line appliances including Viking, Sub-Zero, and Miele. The generously proportioned corner bedroom is an urban sanctuary, featuring stunning custom bookcases and cabinets and wonderful sunlight. The windowed marble bathroom has ample storage and a beautiful stall shower outfitted with fine fixtures. There is an enviable mahogany walk-in custom closet which is a work of art in itself. Coved ceilings, through-wall A/C, and private storage in the basement complete this not to be missed gem.
Built in 1927, this boutique building is moments from the city's best museums, transportation, shopping, and restaurants. With only four apartments per floor, 163 East 81st has a 24-hour doorman, resident superintendent, and central laundry. Pets are welcome and 50% financing is allowed. Pieds-a-terre are considered on a case-by-case basis. There is 2% flip tax paid by purchaser. Must be seen to be truly appreciated.
