Welcome to 45 East 72nd Street. This tranquil, corner two bedroom/two bath residence represents an excellent value in a premier, white-glove co-op on one of Lenox Hill's most iconic blocks. Between its large entry foyer, flexible layout, and abundance of closet space, the floor plan is as practical as it is gracious. With original parquet hardwood flooring throughout, your sprawling and flexible living and dining areas overlook peaceful townhomes and treetops through a panorama of windows, beneath which is through-the-wall air conditioning and heat. The spacious galley kitchen features under-cabinet lighting, in-unit washer/dryer and your own service door, where trash and deliveries conveniently come and go.The private living quarters are accessed through a gallery, replete with closets, one that is so large, it can be used as a home office. Both bedrooms are well appointed and generously sized. The king-sized primary bedroom occupies the outermost corner of the residence, is windowed on two sides, and has no neighbors within earshot. You'll just hear the sounds of birds while enjoying the trees and townhome views. Also included is a massive walk-in closet. Between that one and the other two located in the hallway and second bedroom, you'll hardly have use for the additional basement storage that transfers at no cost with the sale of the apartment. The second bedroom is lined with custom built-ins, boasts two closets and will lend itself seamlessly to a den or home office. Its adjacent second bath is windowed and accessed through the shared hallway for use by guests as well as residents. The apartment has been newly skim coated and freshly painted.A mere stone's throw to Central Park and some of the most prestigious cultural and commercial institutions in New York, a multitude of name restaurants, and transportation on every block, this coveted address represents the quintessence of uptown living. This intimate coop has only three apartments per floor and a meticulously maintained lobby and elevator. 45 East 72nd is a white-glove, post-war co-op with 24-hour doorman, concierge, live-in resident manager, a newly renovated lobby and gym, and a bike room in addition to your own storage.
