Apartment 2B (situated on the Third Floor) is a stunning, bright Prewar Classic Six residence renovated to perfection. Located in the heart of the Upper East Side, not a detail has been left out of this corner 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath home with over 1400 square feet of living space, 9.5 foot ceilings and 11 windows with east and south city views. This classic 1916 Emory Roth designed Bing & Bing building is centrally located between Park and Lexington Avenues and has generous room proportions distinctive of a pre-war residence. 129 East 82nd Street is a small boutique co-op building with a live-in resident manager/super and full time doormen. 80% financing and pied-?-terre purchasing is permitted and the building is pet friendly.
As you enter the residence a gracious marble floored foyer welcomes you. The well-proportioned living room and formal dining room each have ebony hardwood floors, crown moldings, as well as decorative ceiling moldings. Each of these rooms has two windows facing east. A wood-burning fireplace is the perfect finishing touch to the living room.
The stunning bright windowed kitchen is a highlight of this residence. The kitchen has counter seating and substantial storage space. It features a herringbone patterned marble floor, quartz countertops and backsplash, custom milled wood, glass and chrome cabinetry, as well as top-of-the-line integrated appliances, such as a Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine cooler, a Wolf electric oven and gas stovetop and a Miele dishwasher and range hood. The kitchen also includes an office area with lighted glass custom cabinetry providing additional storage space, a vented Bosch washer/dryer and an additional half bath.
Walking back through the formal dining room and living room there are two split bedrooms. The primary bedroom accommodates a king size bed and has two generously sized lighted custom closets. A large window with city views faces south down Lexington Avenue, with another window facing east. Enter the primary bedroom's renovated windowed bath and find a soaking tub with glass enclosed shower, custom vanity and floor to ceiling Porcelanosa stone. On the other side of the living room is the second bedroom, currently used as a den, which has a large south facing window looking onto 82nd Street, with a lovely tree view, a built-in desk and two closets. A beautiful renovated bathroom with shower and floor to ceiling Italian stone complete the room.
The residence contains through-the-wall air conditioning units, custom lighting and the finest finishes throughout. Also included is a large storage unit that conveys with the apartment.
129 East 82nd Street is just steps away from both Central Park and Carl Schurz Park, as well as the Metropolitan Museum.
