The Capitol is a boutique, neo-renaissance prewar landmark building with 25 units on a serene tree lined street in Carnegie Hill. It was built in 1912 and converted to a Coop in 1995. Residents of this impressive building enjoy a friendly and skilled live-in Resident Manager and equally affable Part Time Doormen. 2 elevators including service elevator to the 9th floor. Basement includes a Laundry room and storage cages are available at a small charge. PET friendly! The Co-op allows Subletting, gifting, co-purchasing, guarantors and Pied-a-Terre's too. Flip tax is 1% of purchase price. Financing is permitted to 65%. Current assessment is $741 through 3/2023 for Local Law 11 pointing and brand NEW roof - all of which have already been COMPLETED including the freshly painted lobby. Boiler works well, new oil tank but the Coop uses gas for heating & dual fuel.
The neighborhood is recognized for its fine shopping and dining as well as its rich cultural institutions and galleries. All showings are flexible and by appointment only. (Additional neighborhood pics included)
