175 East 79th Street was built in 1929 by Tishman Realty and Construction. This fifteen story plus penthouse edifice was built to be held as an investment property and not to be sold so the apartments were designed with high ceilings, cushioned floors, and soundproofed walls between apartments. The handsome faade is constructed of red brick with decorative trim, casement windows and a canopied entrance.
This gracious, doorman, prewar, convertible 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom apartment has generously proportioned rooms, excellent light exposure levels and all the character that comes with a classic prewar six of this caliber. A well designed floor plan provides an elegant and practical flow of rooms with proper separation of the principal public rooms from the more private bedroom wing and the service wing with its kitchen, pantry and maids room. From the abundant entry foyer, the living room anchored by a working wood burning fireplace beckons straight ahead permeated by its cheerful southern exposure overlooking 79th street. Pivot to the other side of the foyer and you will find the bright and generous dining room with its connection to the service wing with its separate entry.
As this triple exposure property is located on the fourteenth floor with its primary view facing south across the wide expanse of 79th Street, there is excellent light from the living room and the two primary bedrooms as well. The other principal rooms face west, which also allows for superb light levels given the 14th floor elevation. The kitchen and all baths are windowed adding that extra touch of airiness.
All the prewar details are preserved in this property: hardwood floors, casement windows and nine feet four inch beamed ceilings. Commodious closets are located throughout the apartment including two in the master bedrooms with its en suite bathroom. The kitchen has a Sub Zero refrigerator and both the range and washer dryer are vented. Otherwise, the kitchen and bathrooms have been left untouched in recent years allowing the new owners to put their personal stamp on this beautiful property.
Well located in the Lenox Hill neighborhood of the Upper East Side, 175 East 79th Street is zoned for the PS 6 school district while also providing convenient access to private schools, world class health care facilities including Lenox Hill Hospital/Northwell Health and the many other points of interest and public transportation found in close proximity. 175 East 79th Street is staffed with a full time doorman and a live in super. 60% financing permitted. Viewing by appointment only. Laundry room, bike room and storage room subject to availability. Pets and pied a terre are both allowed.
