Graced with pre-war details and triple exposure, this 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom co-op exemplifies classic city living in the heart of the Upper East Side. Beautiful original plank floors glow in steady beams of northern, southern, and eastern light. Large windows offer charming city views. Beamed ceilings add depth and charm.
The home begins with a spacious foyer with two custom closets and easy access to several rooms. The bright living area stretches 23 feet, while the windowed eat-in kitchen is equipped with granite countertops, ample cabinet space, high-end appliances including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, and a windowed breakfast nook.
The south bedroom features walk-in and built-in closets as well as a windowed en suite bathroom with modern finishes, custom tile work, and walk-in shower. The north bedroom has a custom reach-in closet and is adjacent to a separate small hallway with a double-deep closet and a second windowed full bathroom with a large vanity and a shower/tub combination.
240 East 79th Street is a boutique cooperative that has a beloved staff, including full-time door attendants and a live-in super, as well as private storage, common laundry, a bicycle room, and a tranquil courtyard with a grill, lounge furniture, and a play set. Moments from restaurants, cafes, shops, Central Park, and Museum Mile, 240 East 79th Street provides an ideal Upper East Side location—so ideal, in fact, that it is the building where Candace Bushnell wrote Sex and the City! Nearby subway lines include the 4/5/6/Q. Pets,
pieds-a-terre, and guarantors are welcome. Up to 75% financing is permitted and there is no flip tax.
