Grand Scale Classic 7
Ideally situated on 72nd Street and Madison Avenue in one of the finest pre-war cooperatives, this 3 bedroom apartment offers sunny open views through its triple exposure including south facing windows over 72nd Street, west facing windows over Madison as well as north facing windows, beautifully scaled rooms, ceilings over 10' high and a flexible layout.
One enters the spacious foyer with access to the lovely entertaining rooms and separate bedroom wing. The gorgeous west facing grey lacquered 30' x 18'7" Living Room, has oversized windows and a wood burning fireplace. Through the living room is the nearly perfectly square gracious Formal Dining Room with black and white marble floor. The comfortable mahogany paneled Library (or third bedroom) is adjacent to the other end of the living room, forming a spectacular 3 room entertaining space yet one that it is intimate enough for day to day living.
The windowed Eat-In-Kitchen features a washer/dryer and through the kitchen is a Staff Room or Home Office, and full Staff Bathroom. There is also a space between the entrance foyer and the kitchen that currently is used as a home office but could be easily opened by removing a small wall to the kitchen to function as a pantry or opened from the foyer to function as a gracious gallery.
The private quarters wrap the south side of the building and include a sun drenched corner Master Bedroom Suite. There are two mahogany fitted walk in closets, and a Marble Bathroom with Sherle Wagner fixtures. The second Bedroom has an ensuite bath and a walk in closet.
A generous storage cage transfers with the apartment. Wine storage is available in the building. The building permits pets with Board approval and 30% financing. There is a 1.5% flip tax payable by the Purchaser and an Covid related special assessment of $4986.00.
Designed by architects Rouse & Goldstone and built in 1916, 31 East 72nd Street is a full-service, white glove, prewar cooperative with 24-hour doorman, elevator operator, and superintendent. Located 1 block from Central Park and among the finest shopping and restaurants New York has to offer, this is an ideal location which offers easy access to schools, museums and many cultural institutions as well as public transportation.
