19 East 72nd Street

Situated in one of Manhattan's most prestigious pre-war cooperatives, this elegant duplex apartment fulfills every requirement for even the most discerning buyer. There are beautifully-scaled light-filled rooms, offering high ceilings with handsome architectural detail, and expansive entertaining space. The present owners have carried out a meticulous and beautiful renovation in which nothing has been overlooked. Features include central air conditioning, humidification, new electrical wiring, an audio visual and lighting system, beautiful hardwood floors and plaster moldings. It is seldom that an apartment of this caliber becomes available.

The entrance gallery with gracious curved staircase is inlaid with an intricate marble and brass floor and has a separate powder room for guests. The proportions of the living room with its 10' ceilings, three tall south-facing windows and wood burning fireplace are perfectly balanced as a counterpoint to the adjacent formal dining room which offers an intimacy that belies its large light-filled size. Also off of the gallery is the attractive south facing library with wood burning fireplace. The vast kitchen with multiple windows is flooded with light and offers a separate breakfast area with banquette seating. The cabinetry and choice of materials were carefully chosen to create a pleasing environment in which to cook and relax. Every amenity is featured, along with all of the high-end appliances to be expected.

The upper level is also accessible from the elevator landing and offers a flexible layout that has been thoughtfully designed to function equally well as four bedrooms, each with bathroom, or as a luxurious master suite of two rooms and two baths with two additional bedrooms each with bathroom. The master bedroom has three south windows, an over-sized well-appointed bathroom and two large well-fitted walk-in closets. The second bedroom, also with marble bathroom, is currently used as an adjunct to the master suite providing an office/sitting room with useful well-designed cabinetry creating ample storage. A separate hallway leads to the third and fourth bedrooms each with bathroom and a very large full laundry room which could also be utilized as a staff room.

Built in 1937, 19 East 72nd Street is an impeccably run pre-war cooperative well-known for its impressive limestone Art Deco facade and over-sized windows. It was designed by two of the most celebrated American architects, Rosario Candela and Mott B. Schmidt, and was one of Candela's final grand designs. Its location less than a block from Central Park, further enhances its appeal.
