We are pleased to offer this wonderful Pre-war Condominium Duplex in the heart of the Upper East Side! Originally completed in 1928 as the "owner's duplex," this gracious two-level home spans approximately 3163 square feet with 10 rooms, 2 wood-burning fireplaces, 9-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, and marvelous natural light throughout. The feeling of a grand townhouse (with services!) makes this home irresistibly livable and perfect for entertaining.
The gracious entry foyer welcomes you with the original grand slate, wrought iron, and brass staircase. There is a lovely powder room just off the entry. The foyer leads directly into the expansive living/dining room with large windows, herringbone floors, fireplace, and original display nooks. Beyond the living room is a large and very comfortable media room featuring attractive built-ins and plenty of room for seating.
The enormous eat-in kitchen boasts top-of-the-line appliances, marble countertops, ample storage and work space, with a breakfast room large enough for its own seating area and office nook. Also in this highly functional space is a fantastic wet bar connecting the media room to the kitchen area.
The second level of the home consists of a luxurious primary bedroom suite containing 2 full baths, a large dressing room, and 4 substantial closets. Also on the upper level is a handsome wood paneled study (or 4th bedroom) with fireplace, and 2 cheery secondary bedrooms which are connected by a jack-and-jill bathroom with double sinks.
No detail was overlooked in the design of this exceptional home. The apartment is in excellent condition and has thru-wall combination AC/Heating units in each room. There is a washer/dryer in the home and 3 storage units will transfer with the sale.
Located between Madison and Park Avenues, just seconds from Central Park and some of the finest shops, restaurants, and museums in New York City, 50 East 72nd Street is a pet-friendly, well-maintained pre-war condo with a full-time doorman, live-in super, bike room, and central laundry facility.
