Located on 79th Street just off Lexington Avenue in a handsome 1915 apartment house is a warm and sun-filled "Classic Seven" resplendent with history, charm and elegance. A beloved original "C Line" at 156 East 79th Street, this inviting home has the unusual distinction of all of its rooms facing south with sun-filled, city views, with the exception of the large kitchen which has open north city views.
A gracious central foyer welcomes you to side-by side formal living and dining rooms; both with large windows, soaring ten foot tall ceilings. The living room is generous enough for multiple seating areas and features a wood burning fireplace. The dining room's generous proportions will accommodate large, formal dining. The spacious windowed kitchen is large enough to contain an eat-in area, a separate laundry, and features the original butler's pantry cabinets. A bright staff room and windowed bath are located off the kitchen area.
The private bedroom wing is located off the foyer with a long separate hall distinct from the public rooms. Two cheerful southern facing bedrooms, each with two closets, share a windowed bath. The master suite at the end of the hall is a wonderfully proportioned nearly square room and features its own windowed bath.
With its beautifully conceived layout, splendid light, views and quiet, high ceilings, and near 100 year old detail, Apartment 8C upon restoration is destined to become a treasured home to enjoy for many years to come.
