On the corner of a tree-lined block nestled between the limestone architectural splendor of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on 5th and St. Ignatius Loyola on Park, this gracious five room cooperative embodies the best of Upper East Side living.
This two bedroom, two and a half bath home has grand proportions befitting a pre-war layout, as well as the prestige and exclusivity of a full service white-glove co-op. Exiting off its mahogany paneled elevator to an intimate hallway shared with only two neighbors you enter into a large marble-tiled foyer, accented with a deep coat closet, a wall of built-in closets and a powder room. The gracious living room has herringbone patterned hardwood floors and opens onto a generously proportioned formal dining room with built-in closets and pocket doors, which can also be used as a den, office/library or third bedroom. The windowed eat-in-kitchen was updated with a stainless steel dishwasher, 5 burner stove, wine cooler and emerald green stone tile.
The bedroom wing, tucked behind a paneled glass door, extends its reaches to the southeast corner of Madison Avenue with extra large bedrooms and incredible closet space. The primary bedroom has three large northwest facing corner windows and a walk-in-closet formed from the consolidation of two closets in the original layout. The windowed master bathroom has a glass paneled standing shower with playfully arched tile entryway. The smaller of the two bedrooms, although large by average standards, has immense storage capacity, built out with two walls of shelving and a third wall of double door closets flanking the T.V. console and also has an ensuite bathroom. This home has low maintenance and trades with a private storage unit.
40 East 84th Street is a full service cooperative built in 1963 with attentive staff, live-in superintendent, full-time doorman, garage (wait list), bicycle storage, and new central laundry in an ideal Carnegie Hill, an enclave of the Upper East Side, location.
