Located within the distinctive 18th-Century “Black and White” brick row houses, perched above the East River and beside a small cobblestoned park, this large, gut-renovated studio is elegant in its simplicity, with a luxurious, minimalist feel. Recently completed, the property has been barely used by the out-of-state sellers, and is in absolute triple-mint, “as-new” condition. Originally a one-bedroom, the open space features high ceilings, superb new finishes, and four large southern-facing windows with open water views to the East. Painstakingly rebuilt and improved from the wall studs in, the major renovation included leveling the floors and ceiling, installing new, premium solid walnut floors, new thermal pane windows, skim-coated plaster walls and ceilings, and new thru-wall A/C. Other upgrades include a new 100 amp electrical panel and circuit breakers, and custom, factory-tinted Lutron electrical controls and outlets. There is a very large, custom floor-to-ceiling closet smartly outfitted with walnut shelves and drawers, and optional storage is available in the basement. The modern kitchen features all-new appliances by Wolf, Sub Zero and Miele, honed granite countertops, and an extra-deep Franke stainless steel sink. The spacious bathroom is custom-designed, with a large walk-in shower, a custom sink, Ann Sacks glass tiles, Italian Calacutta Gold Marble, and Dornbracht fixtures. The apartment is on the 4th floor of this legendary non-doorman, 5-story walk-up, featured prominently in Woody Allen’s 1986 film, Hannah and Her Sisters. The upper floor provides a bird’s eye vantage point above the trees and a mesmerizing river views. There is a new, video-capable intercom system. 535 East 72nd Street is a pet-friendly co-op that requires strong financials for purchase approval. 75% financing is allowed. Guarantors not permitted. The live-in super and porter provide an array of services for residents. There is a 3% flip tax split between buyer and seller.
