This is the first time this Classic Seven is being offered in over 50 years. This high-floor, sun-flooded apartment boasts exposures to the south, east, and north, and views to the midtown skyline. Prewar details are everywhere you look, including the original wood burning fireplace, millwork, and 9'6" beamed ceilings.
After passing through the semi-private elevator vestibule, the gracious 20' entrance foyer opens up into the south facing living room with big city views. To the left is your formal dining room with seating for eight. The kitchen and home office are tucked behind the dining room and offer a great opportunity for a larger eat-in kitchen.
There are three large bedrooms, two of which enjoy the open south-facing views over protected townhouses, and three bathrooms. All rooms feature high ceilings and wood flooring throughout. Storage transfers with the home.
This apartment needs TLC and has lots of potential.
