This classic, seven-room Upper East Side residence, on a high floor of one of New York’s finest prewar co-op buildings, is replete with original details alongside tasteful and useful modern updates. Its traditional layout is classic and functional while effortlessly serving today’s demands, within approximately 2200 square feet. The apartment was recently fully renovated and redesigned with the help of designer Natalie Kraiem.
The entrance is through a welcoming gallery flooded with light from the living room, splashing against off-white paneled walls, dark wood floors, and beamed ceilings in both spaces. The formal living room contains a working fireplace and is large enough for multiple uses. Opposite the fireplace, the connecting formal dining room is painted in an attractive vintage turquoise, contrasting the two rooms and making both feel even more spacious.
The three full-sized bedrooms include a master suite with northern and eastern exposures and its own bath, appointed with marble countertops and his-and-hers vanity sinks. The two family bedrooms share a jack-and-jill bath, while a smaller fourth bedroom with its own bath can be used variously as a staff room, guest bedroom, or office. It currently contains a washer and a dryer. From the dining room, the butler’s pantry leads to a large, windowed kitchen flooded with natural light, with white cabinetry, a chequered floor, high-end stainless steel Viking appliances, and a cozy breakfast banquette.
Exquisitely located in the heart of the Upper East Side, on 75th Street between Park and Lexington, this elegant and exclusive building was built in the 1920s by noted architects Schwartz & Gross. The building comes with all the accouterments of a full-service white glove co-op of its caliber, including a graceful lobby with a 24-hour doorman, a live-in super, a gym, storage space, and a laundry room.
