This grand classic eight into seven apartment defines good bones with soaring 10 feet ceilings, a woodburning fireplace, beautiful hardwood floors, a gracious entry foyer and grand room proportions. Owned by the same family for decades, this treasure will require some kitchen and bath updates, in addition to cosmetic work. With 6 windows looking over double-wide 79th Street, this apartment is a true gem for the discerning buyer to create their dream home.
The flexible layout easily allows for 3 or 4 bedrooms, an eat in kitchen and formal dining room – perfect for any lifestyle. Originally set up as a separate formal layout with living and dining room, three proper bedrooms along a bedroom hall, a large kitchen with a W/D and two oversized staff rooms, the current layout has been reconfigured to feature an extra full-size guest bedroom (or family room) and full bathroom off the kitchen and an open library/den in the main living space. The gracious primary suite features space for a dressing area and windowed primary bath with a dual vanity.
Built in 1915 and designed by Schwartz & Gross, 156 East 79th Street is a well-established Upper East Side pre-war co-op with a full-time doorman and live-in resident manager, a bicycle room, a laundry room, basement storage and reasonable work rules. Located in the heart of the Upper East Side, close to Central Park, the city’s most famous museums, destination dining, specialty food markets, the best public and private schools, this home is truly convenient to all major transportation.
