On one of the most charming blocks in the East 70s, nestled among the family of buildings known as Eastgate, 235 East 73rd is a full-service, prewar building designed by the preeminent architect Emory Roth and was constructed by the famed builders Bing & Bing in 1936. You enter this lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home through an arched vestibule into a wide, gracious foyer and dining room with three deep closets. The adjacent bright, windowed kitchen is filled with possibilities for the modern cook. The elegant, well-proportioned step down living room, features beamed ceilings and bright Southern views onto tree lined East 73rd Street.
The primary bedroom offers two large closets and a windowed en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom (currently set up as a den) is spacious with bright, open Northern exposures and a second full en-suite bathroom. Through-the-wall air conditioning and a washer dryer are allowed with board approval.
This elegant building is a well-established, pet-friendly co-op with a live-in resident manager, a large and renovated fitness room, bike room, laundry, resident’s courtyard and private storage available for a small rental fee (might be a short waiting list). Pieds-a-terre, guarantors and parental purchasing are all reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
The building is conveniently located close to the best markets, boutiques, and restaurants on the Upper Eastside, and its proximity to the Q Subway makes the rest of Manhattan easily accessible. An added bonus is that the 200 block of East 73rd Street is one of the prettiest in Manhattan, with storied seasonal lights on the street every winter, elevating the already beautiful iconic facades of the Bing & Bing buildings.
