Don't miss this rare opportunity to live in a an eight-room corner apartment with great light in a J.E.R. Carpenter designed boutique building. The bones are there, now bring your architect and designer and make it your own unique elegant home. From the private elevator landing, one enters a beautifully proportioned gallery, off of which open formal dining room, living room with working wood burning fireplace and library (or third bedroom) for a flow that works as well for entertaining on a grand scale or just relaxing at home.
Two bedrooms, each with its ensuite bath (although one operates as a jack and jill bath for the library) are in their own private wing with ample closets. On the other side of the apartment, behind the kitchen are two staff bedrooms, currently configured as a home office/dressing room and sewing room, but which are large enough to be two more comfortable bedrooms, or perhaps a playroom with a separate room for a nanny. They share a full bath.
The kitchen is windowed and large enough to eat in. The accompanying butler's pantry will accommodate a washer/dryer. Currently there is a washer in the kitchen. There are multiple possibilities for reconfiguration.
Floors are oak strip hardwood and laid diagonally with borders in the living room and dining room. In the gallery the floor is laid in parquet. In all other rooms except for the staff rooms the flooring is oak strip. The ceilings are 9 feet high with the frames and moldings for which all good prewar buildings are known. The windows are all over sized. Air conditioning is thru the wall. Two storage units convey with the apartment.
149 East 73rd Street is a luxury full service building, known for its long standing staff and resident manager. The building is maintained to an immaculate standard. Besides the central laundry room there is bike storage and a roof deck. Pets are allowed. Guarantors and parents buying for children are allowed. Pied a terres are allowed.
Subletting is not allowed. There is a 2% flip tax. Maximum financing is 50%.
It is convenient to mass transportation, Central Park and to all the shops and restaurants for which the area is especially known.
