Sun Filled Prewar Classic 6
Located on a quintessential tree-lined Upper East Side townhouse block, this mint condition Classic 6 is a perfect find. The elegant foyer leads to a bright and cheery living room with wood-burning fireplace and southern treetop views over townhouses. The adjacent spacious formal dining room leads to a butler’s pantry and renovated windowed kitchen with top of the line appliances including a vented Wolf range with grill, Subzero refrigerator and wine cooler, and Miele dishwasher. Additional kitchen details include custom cabinetry providing ample storage and Calacatta Gold marble countertops. A bedroom hallway leads to two south-facing spacious bedrooms. The master bedroom has 7 closets and a gut renovated ensuite bathroom. The ample second bedroom is directly across the hallway from another renovated white marble clad windowed bathroom. The well sized maid's room, currently used as a bedroom, could be repurposed as an office or play space. It includes a powder room and a vented Bosch washer/dryer that replaced the shower stall. Additional notable details include hardwood floors, crown molding, coffered ceilings, custom mill work and through the wall air conditioning throughout the apartment.
