Escape to this hidden gem in the heart of the Upper East Side
Upon entering this perfect home, one is embraced by the lush garden-facing exposure and absolute silence, with all of the liveliness that Lenox Hill has to offer right outside your doorsteps. This one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment's prewar character and charm is emphasized with archways and crown moldings throughout. The state of the art eat-in kitchen designed by Poggenpohl features honed limestone countertops and Carrera marble floors with high-end appliances including a Sub-Zero fridge, Miele cooktop range, Stoves oven and Miele dishwasher. There is an additional garden-side sitting/dining alcove, readily convertible to office space. From the inviting living room and kitchen, one can follow the gallery-like hallway to the generous master bedroom complete with separate double closets and dual paned windows looking out to the tree-lined Third Avenue. This masterful apartment is completed by five spacious closets with custom shelving throughout and an updated bathroom featuring limestone finishes.
The Bayard House is a white glove full-service cooperative comprising a prewar classic colonial building (2E is in the prewar section) and a postwar 27 story tower. The buildings are connected by a glass walkway surrounded by landscaped gardens and fountains. In apartment 2E, one has the leisure of enjoying a serene escape and the feeling of a townhouse surrounded by gardens, while also having direct access to the tower's many amenities including a fitness center, roof-deck, bike room, laundry in building and on-site parking. This pet friendly and pied-a-terre friendly co-op offers a neighborly feeling from the full-time doorman, live-in super, and concierge service, with Morton Williams right at the foot of the building. Located quite close to both the Q and 6 trains as well as the 72nd Street crosstown bus, enjoy shopping a block away on Madison Avenue as well as a plethora of Upper East Side restaurants like JG Melon, Maison Kayser, Sushi of Gari, and Orsay.
