31 East 79th Street 12E - $4,995,000

Classic elegance on 79th and Madison!

Bright and beautiful are the best ways to describe this seven room home in one of the Upper East Side's premier prewar cooperatives. A private landing leads you into the large gallery, off of which the entire home flows. The perfectly proportioned living room has a wood burning fireplace with a regal carved marble mantle and open South and side Park views. The formal dining room is spacious and bright, facing East over Madison Avenue. The new Chef's designer kitchen has open North exposures, custom hand painted shaker cabinets by Clive Christian, Carrera marble countertops, a 48" Sub-Zero refrigerator and vented stove. There is lots of cupboard space, a generous pantry as well as counter space, and a butler's pantry. The Miele washer and vented dryer are in the kitchen as well.

On the North side of the apartment there are two large staff rooms and a renovated full bathroom. One is a perfect guest room or bedroom and the other is set up as a study. These staff rooms have open North exposures.

The second bedroom is set up as a library and has a renovated en-suite bathroom. It is gracious and square with a lovely Eastern exposure and custom bookshelves. The grand corner master suite has both South and East sun filled views and four wonderful closets, including two large walk-ins. There is also a large renovated en-suite windowed bathroom.

The entire apartment has beautiful quarter sawn herringbone and strip hard wood floors, through wall air conditioning and high ceilings. The living room, dining room and library have been wired for speakers. Spanning 2 corners, this home has all outside rooms and enjoys spectacular light from the South, East and North all day.

31 East 79th is a white glove cooperative between Fifth and Madison. There are both full time doormen and elevator operators, a resident manager, and private storage as well as a bike room. Pets are welcome.
