Welcome to 215 East 72nd Street, an intimate full-service prewar cooperative comprised of 30 homes – two per floor – designed in the grand style of New York's famous architects, Emery Roth and Rosario Candela.
The generously proportioned rooms and the traditional layout makes Apartment 5W a true “Classic 8”. All the rooms are neatly arranged around an expansive 29-foot entrance gallery.
The residence features 3 full bedrooms and 3 baths, a large south-facing living room with a woodburning fireplace, a stately formal dining room replete with a butler's pantry, and a spacious cook's kitchen. There are 2 maid's rooms, one of which is currently used as a studio for the artist in the family.
A library, originally the master bedroom, opens to the living room through pocket doors adding to the already lavish entertaining space. A former hallway was converted into a 13-foot long walk-in closet off the master bedroom.
Surrounded by low-rise buildings on three sides (south, west, and north), the residence enjoys an extraordinary amount of natural light as well as pleasant street and courtyard views.
Apartment 5W exudes prewar charm and detail! The dramatic beamed ceilings are an exceptional 9 feet and 7 inches tall. There are built-in bookcases and a woodburning fireplace — picture moldings and hardwood floors run throughout. All three bathrooms are windowed and have period subway tile, cast-iron tubs, pedestal sinks, and recessed full-length medicine cabinets.
Every window was replaced and through-wall air conditioning installed in the living room and library/den. There are a washer and a dryer in the kitchen.
215 East 72nd Street is in an ideal location – just off Third Avenue, near the new 2nd Avenue subway — convenient to the finest shopping and dining the Upper East Side offers. It has 24-hour doorman service and a laundry room. A free storage bin transfers with the apartment. A 2% flip tax helps to ensure that the building's excellent financial and physical condition is maintained.
