160 E. 72 Street: Double Height Grandeur
Quite possibly the most dramatic full floor apartment in 160 East 72nd Street, a quintessential prewar built in 1928, the 11th floor features the double-height music room with ceiling heights just shy of 20 feet from the original 17-room duplex along with Juliette balconies across its front. Beautifully renovated and in mint condition, the apartment has its own private elevator vestibule and magnificent light and city views. Featuring grand scale rooms most typically found in the finest Park Avenue co-op’s, such as the 30 foot living room with wood burning fireplace and the opulent master bedroom with enormous dressing room and bath. The library/guest room also features approximately 20 foot ceilings with a window reminiscent of Versailles. Featuring every possible amenity and convenience, the apartment also has a professional kitchen and breakfast area. The building was originally built by Jay Gould’s grandchild who owned a townhouse at this location, and features a Romanesque facade.
