Located just off Fifth Avenue on 91st Street, on what The New York Times called 'the grandest block in the city", this stunning five (5) room apartment with southern sunny exposures is located in a well-established full-service doorman building with remarkably low maintenance. The apartment boasts a flexible layout and proximity to Central Park, the city's best schools, restaurants and shopping. The welcoming entry which has a convenient powder room, leads to the elegant living room with herringbone floors, a beautiful decorative fireplace, and custom built-ins. The dining room lined with handsome bookshelves can double as a wonderful home office. The attractive white windowed kitchen has a SubZero refrigerator, GE appliances, a washer/dryer and plenty of storage space. The two bedrooms are generously sized. The primary bedroom has a dressing area, an ensuite bath and easily accommodates a king size bed. The second bedroom, currently used as a den/office, has its own bathroom as well. The apartment has exceptional closet space (9 in total!) and radiant heating throughout-no radiators!
15 East 91st Street was designed by Schultze & Associates in 1947 in collaboration with the Columbia School of Architecture. There are charming art deco details throughout. The block boasts several of the greatest mansions ever built in the city, all city landmarks, now occupied by The Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, the Convent of the Sacred Heart and the Russian Consulate. The building has a full-time doorman, a resident manager, bike storage, private storage, a laundry facility and a fitness room. Pets and pied-a-terres are allowed. Guarantors permitted on a case by case basis. 2.5% flip tax paid by purchaser. A MUST SEE!
