HIGH FLOOR, OVERSIZED CLASSIC 6 WITH WRAP TERRACE
Elegance abounds in this oversized classic 6 with a lovely wrap terrace and open city views. Perched on a high floor with excellent light, this refined residence offers the pre-war architectural details treasured by buyers: well-proportioned rooms, soaring ceilings, wood burning fireplace, casement windows, handsome moldings, and French doors.
From a semi-private elevator landing, one enters the gracious foyer which leads to an impressive step-down living room anchored by a beautiful fireplace and original mantle. Soft northern light filters through two large windows and French doors provide access to the terrace outside. Adjoining the living room is a sunny, corner library/den (originally the formal dining room) which features a wrap terrace accessible through French doors. Three additional windows showcase brilliant eastern light.
The private quarters consist of two substantial bedrooms each with its own windowed en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet. The north facing primary chamber boasts a renovated bathroom and a terrace accessible through French doors. The large secondary bedroom with an original pre-war bathroom enjoys afternoon light from the west.
The cheery windowed kitchen, with access from the foyer or library, accommodates a breakfast bar, and along with the pantry, has ample counter and storage space. There is also a staff room with full bathroom, perfect for use as an office or third bedroom. A laundry room with side by side washer and dryer completes this spacious residence.
180 East 79th Street is a distinguished pre-war cooperative with 24-hour doorman, elevator attendants and a live-in resident manager. Amenities include a fitness room, individual storage cages, bicycle storage and a large common laundry. The building is ideally located between Lexington and Third Avenues convenient to restaurants, shopping and transportation. Pets and pied a terres are permitted. The co-op allows up to 50% financing.
