Once in a generation, a beautiful home like this comes to market, a duplex of nearly 2200sf, in move-in condition and located in one of the UES's best known, full service cooperatives. With open sky, treetop and townhouse views from almost every room, this is one of only 4 duplexes in the building and unique in that it has a third full bedroom and full bathroom. As you enter, your eyes are immediately drawn to the light, the space and the view. The gracious gallery leads to a grand living room that seamlessly joins a large dining area to form a marvelous entertaining space. From here and straight ahead is a den/bedroom with a wall of custom-fitted closets and full bathroom. Walk the other way and enter the large, gourmet eat-in kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, granite countertops, granite tile backsplash and custom wood cabinetry throughout.
The feeling and comfort of being in a private home is never more apparent than when you walk up the wide staircase to the second floor (with access to the apartment from this floor as well.) Here you will find the primary and second bedrooms both with full walls of closets and beautifully renovated onyx, granite and glass tile bathrooms, ensuite. The washer dryer, in its own space, is also on this floor. The apartment has a lovely flow with tons of custom-fitted closets and brand new air conditioners in all rooms. More than any other, you will know right away that this is the one, the space and place where you will want to put down roots.
120 East 81 Street is a fine, full service cooperative with live-in resident manager, full staff and garage access to and from the building. In addition, shareholders enjoy: low maintenance that includes all utilities and cable, fully equipped exercise room with two Peloton bikes, laundry and bike rooms, a storage room with individual areas dedicated to each apartment. Steps from Central Park, the Met and many of the best public and private schools in the city, is there any wonder that this building is on the short list of so many buyers?
