TIMELESS, RENOVATED, STYLISH, JUMBO PRE-WAR HOME

SUPREME LOCATION - GORGEOUS BUILDING w/GARDEN ON COVETED BLOCK

PIED TERRE PERFECTION

Some owners just get it. They know how to strike the perfect balance of classic and current pretty and practical. By tastefully and mindfully upgrading and improving this well-scaled, townhouse-like residence, a timeless home with a newfound relevance has been created.

Just like the neighborhood that houses this stunning sprawler, this home is anchored in its past, but picture perfect, poised and ready for its 21 Century self. Sweetly perched in the quiet, bright side of its treasured building, this awesome address is moments away from the prized Q train and surrounded by the best cafes and merchants that have blossomed nearby since the neighborhood was refreshed and re-invented. Rare is it that a residence is renovated at the same time that its neighborhood was renovated. This home benefits beautifully from both new identities.

The foyer gallery is a sizable, welcoming space that offers ample wall space for art, three oversized closets, and sets the house-like tone of this well-planned, stretch-out, feel-good residence. With high ceilings above and handsome hardwood underfoot, the living room is substantial and elegant a comfortable core to this cheerful home enjoying the bright benefits from its two, big, South-facing windows and a dining alcove. Served beautifully by a built-in bar area (with a wine fridge), and a fully renovated, windowed kitchen (with ample stone counters and cabinet space and premium stainless appliances), entertaining and easy-living abound. Graciously situated on the other side of this residence is the king-sized bedroom. South-facing, and with room enough for a sitting area, the big bedroom is quiet and bright, offers good closet space, and is served by an attractive, windowed, marble bath.

This standout residence has a location that truly comes with bragging rights: One block away is the Q train, and nearby is the 6 train. East 71st Street is the quintessential Upper Eastside block leafy, lovely, and graced with a sweet architectural aesthetic. Most every area cultural, dining, shopping, entertainment, and fitness destination are close by, and this winsome home's live-in Super runs a tight ship. Packages are handled expertly, the good looking lobby and halls are on point, and the building garden is a lovely retreat. With a bike room, central laundry, and storage, life here is well-run, easy, convenient, and fun.

Once in a rare while, a residence and a location come into their own together and at the same time. For this home, and this neighborhood, that perfect time is right now.

(Pied a terre buyers welcome. Dogs and subletting not permitted.)
