This mint-perfect, classic six room apartment was renovated less than five years ago by renowned architect Alan Wanzenberg. The apartment is located in a very special prewar building occupying the southwest corner of 79th Street between Lexington and Third Avenues. Off a semi-private elevator entry, the apartment is generously sized at over 2000 square feet with huge sunny south-facing windows and extra-large rooms. The spacious entry gallery steps down to a gracious living room with a wood burning fireplace and back up to a nearly square formal dining room – now a library/den. In one wing, there are two enormous bedrooms, each with a renovated bath, radiant heated floors, and large custom-designed walk-in closets. In the other wing is a fully renovated chef's kitchen with Viking appliances, a separate wine refrigerator, pot filler over the stove, externally vented exhaust hood, plentiful storage, and a butler's pantry/breakfast bar. Off the kitchen area is a large maid's room/home office/third bedroom with washer/dryer and a full bath. Every inch of the apartment has been renovated to perfection and includes new windows, 9'6” ceiling heights, lovely lighting, single zoned through-the-wall HVAC units with supplemental heat and programmable digital thermostat in each room, built-in humidifiers in both master bedrooms, and automated light and shade system to protect from the dazzling South sunlight. 180 East 79th Street was built in 1929 and provides an abundance of services including full time doormen, attended elevators, new fitness center, large central laundry, tenant storage, bike storage, and a helpful staff of over 20 people to attend to the tenants' every need. It's a very pet friendly building, and allows 50% financing. Pied-a-terres are also permitted with board approval. This full service co-op in a prime location is convenient to transportation, schools, shopping and fine Upper East Side restaurants.
