Gracious and sophisticated, resplendent with impeccably restored original 1928 detail and timelessly updated for today's standards, Apartment 12B at 175 East 79th Street offers the opportunity to purchase a beautifully renovated and meticulously maintained pre-war Classic Six room home-generously proportioned, infused with lovely natural light, ideal for entertaining-in one of the most desirable locations on the Upper East Side.
Upon arrival at this truly elegant home situated on a high floor, a generous foyer leads you towards the glorious sun-filled, spacious 22-foot living room with oversized window facing south over 79th Street and city views. The working wood-burning fireplace with handsome black marble surround and fine carved dentil molding mantle anchors this impressive space, and is further complemented by handcrafted, built-in bookshelves, elegant 9.5-foot-high ceilings, abundant details such as wide baseboards, cove and crown moldings, and gleaming walnut-stained restored original solid oak floors. To the east is the grand formal dining room which also features fine custom millwork and easily accommodates dining for 10 in a most inviting and refined setting. This versatile room also works well as a library/media room.
The renovated, bright and cheerful eat-in kitchen is just beyond the dining room and features white lacquered custom solid wood cabinetry offering abundant storage and display space, a butler's pantry with full wet bar and wine fridge, stunning herringbone floors, and a breakfast room-the perfect windowed gathering spot for informal meals or a quiet spot to read the paper with a morning cappuccino. The convenient and discreet powder room is located just off the breakfast room. This flexible space may also be easily configured as a nanny's room or a third bedroom.
The private bedroom wing is separated from the formal spaces by a hallway leading to a beautiful primary suite comprised of a renovated windowed marble bathroom with dual vanity, and a king-sized bedroom with sun-drenched southern views and custom closets.
The sizable second bedroom also faces south over 79th Street and is well suited for a sumptuous study or guest room, with excellent storage. A second renovated, windowed full bathroom features an oversized glass-paneled step in shower and beautiful glazed porcelain tiling and pedestal sink.
The many features of this stunning home include through-wall HVAC for year-round comfort, immaculately preserved original details including wide baseboard, chair and picture rail moldings and polished brass fittings, skim-coated plaster walls & ceilings, refinished solid wood flooring, and many custom closets for all of your storage needs. The living room, Master Bedroom and second bedroom enjoy light and sun throughout the day. A truly grand home to cherish for many years of refined living and enjoyment.
