The windows alone in this apartment will steal your heart, but that's just the beginning. Beautiful, oversized, double-glazed casement bay windows facing south from every window onto 78th Street, set the tone for this sunny, happy, perfectly designed two-bedroom, two bath apartment. The foyer, with a generous coat closet, leads directly to the open kitchen and living room, with trees and charming townhouse views filling every window. The modern PoggenPohhl kitchen is both beautiful and functional with Caesarstone countertops and backsplash, an integrated state-of-the-art Liebbher refrigerator, Bosch appliances, a hood that vents to the outside and an Insinkerator garbage disposal. A generously sized, tranquil master bedroom, which easily fits a king bed, has a beautiful bay window across the entire south side of the bedroom and features a very large outfitted walk-in-closet, an additional regular closet, and a stunning en-suite master bathroom with custom marble mosaic floor, glass enclosed shower, walnut vanity with Caesarstone countertop, mirrored medicine cabinet, and built in storage. The second bedroom, also facing south, has its own beautiful bathroom with marble floors and a Waterworks cast iron tub. There is also a washing machine and vented dryer in the apartment.
Located on a charming tree-lined block, 245 East 78th Street is a historic building that has been reimagined as a boutique collection of twenty-two modern apartments. The classic and detailed pre-war facade has been carefully preserved and restored, while double-glazed European casement windows have been added for optimal natural light and architectural richness. Aside from the exterior, everything in the building has been completely gut renovated. Residents will enjoy all new systems such as individually controlled multi-zone heating and cooling, Insinkerator garbage disposals, washer/dryers that vent and hardwood floors. Amenities include an attended lobby with a full-time doorman and a package room for deliveries, a landscaped roof terrace with open city views, a private fitness center with a walkout courtyard, a bicycle room, and a private storage closet for each residence. With an ambiance that resembles a wonderful boutique hotel, 245 East 78th Street raises the bar for apartments on the Upper East Side. Pets are welcome.
