In 1915, the famed architectural firm of Schwartz & Gross envisioned a boutique building whose impressive layouts would live graciously for generations to come. This big classic home is testament to that vision.


Unfolding here is a comfortable, formidable, flexible, and easy-living residence that is poised for you to write its next chapter. With high ceilings above, and with handsome herringbone and parquet floors underfoot, this easy-to-love home's classic elements are plentiful and ready for your refresh. Make your kitchen a mega eat-in space with two windows (precedent exists in building), add a washer dryer (precedent exists in building), re-think both baths, re-imagine the layout (all with necessary Board approvals) - here you have options and a culture of YES.


The flow in this feel-good find is seamless and timeless. The over-scaled foyer/gallery (with a trio of closets) spills into the big, bright living room with its signature big, bright bay window, built-ins and wood-burning fireplace. The radiant dining room beams brightly (courtesy of its South-facing window), and smartly nests right off of the windowed kitchen (see above and dream of that big eat-in space - see proposed alternate plan).


The king-sized corner primary bedroom boasts two exposures (cross breezes, anyone?) and is linked -- by shared windowed bath -- to the big guest bedroom (readily changed -- can even pursue afore-mentioned washer/dryer - see proposed alternate plan). The second full windowed bath is off of the graceful gallery hall.


Ideally perched in the coveted B-line, this ready-for-your-vision residence enjoys all the benefits of its full service, pet friendly building. With round-the-clock staff, a resident superintendent, bike and laundry rooms, renovated lobby, and new elevators, life here is effortless and convenient.


Nearby is every area cultural, art, dining, shopping, and fitness destination -- world-class institutions like the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Frick Collection, Madison Avenue shops, and Central Park are all a stone's throw from this home, and a plethora of easy transportation options abound.


Here's your unique chance to put your shine on a marvelous home in a prized area -- a big beauty with a fireplace and a trophy location. Here is your heart-warming opportunity in the heart of it all.
