This one of a kind residence exudes prewar elegance & style in equal measure.
At approximately 6,000 square feet with 7 Bedrooms and 6.5 baths, this unique and wonderful property is one of the most important apartments to hit the Upper East Side market in a long time. Meticulously renovated in the 2000s and with four exposures, the light is impressive and the views exceptional throughout.
This full floor apartment is perfect for entertaining or having a quiet evening at home. Walk out from your private entrance into a massive galley and one can experience its true scope. The front half of the unit contains an expansive living room with herringbone hardwood floors and is bordered by oversized windows. There is a separate and elegant dining area and a huge kitchen, which then flows into a den, plus staff or live-in bedroom. There are also 4 fireplaces (3 gas and one wood).
The rear of the apartment contains 6 bedrooms (one currently used as a den) -- many with baths en-suite. There is a large laundry + utility room, home gym, and fantastic storage & closet space. This unit also comes with a room on the ground floor that was originally used for staff, but is now a storage room. The space also comes with two large storage lockers (independent of the storage room), and a climate controlled wine locker. Building amenities include a lovely garden, gym, and professional 24 hour full service staff.
The 12th Floor at 136 East 79th Street offers the discerning buyer the opportunity to purchase a rarely seen footprint in one of the Upper East Side's finest coops. With close proximity to Central Park, top public and private schools, fine restaurants and everything that makes this prime area of the UES a worldwide destination, this lovely home is an extraordinary gem.
