Truly a unique offering, this sunny, renovated corner duplex maisonette has its own secure and discreet entrance on Park Avenue at 82nd Street and reaps the benefits of a prestigious pre-war cooperative, including 24/7 doorman for deliveries and resident manager for service needs. Currently in use as a fine art gallery, this rarely available and extraordinarily special property offers multiple uses: as an elegant gallery, office, medical space, live/work, and/or purely residential. The sun-flooded ground floor has a 24'6” x 13'7” living room (currently used as a showroom) and adjacent dining room (currently used as a meeting room), excellent storage, kitchen and powder room (originally a full bath); the second floor has two bedrooms, a study and full bathroom, all with oversized casement windows (the upstairs is currently configured as offices and workroom). As a primary residence or pied-a-terre, only minor adjustments would be needed to configure the space for residential use. For example, the current showroom would be usable as a grand living room, with adjacent dining room. And upstairs, the three rooms currently in use as offices readily convert to two bedrooms, with one of the three offices likely used to create closets. An additional full bathroom can be added, should that be desired. A gracious entry gallery leads to a stairwell; closets and general storage throughout is outstanding. Ceiling height soars over 10-feet on both floors. Hand-laid oak flooring of the highest quality is in excellent condition. Climate control includes a sophisticated zoned central air-conditioning system and a security system in place. Two blocks from the Met, countless other galleries and museums, and the many stores, boutiques and restaurants that the Upper East Side is known for, the location is superb.
