Perched on a high floor of a distinguished prewar cooperative, this mint condition, 8 into 7 room corner residence is a stunner not to be missed. Bathed in sunlight throughout the day, there are four exposures and all major rooms face south. Classic architectural details include a wood burning fireplace with antique marble mantle, high ceilings, beautiful moldings, custom millwork, richly stained hardwood floors and oversized windows. Off the semi private elevator landing enter an elegant entrance gallery which seamlessly separates the public and private areas of this exquisite home. The entertaining rooms include a spacious living room large enough for two seating areas and a dining table. An exquisite den/family room (formerly the dining room) flows from the living room and features pocket doors for privacy. The den allows for easy access into the windowed eat-in kitchen which has a convenient built-in banquette for casual dining. Stainless appliances include a built in convection oven and microwave, and there is plenty of cabinet/counter space for storage. The sun-filled bedroom wing boasts three well-proportioned chambers with custom-designed closets. The corner primary bedroom with eastern and southern exposures features a dressing area/closet and windowed en suite marble bathroom with double vanity, stall shower and radiant heat floors. A second bedroom, nearly equal in size to the principal bedroom, also enjoys sunny southern views and is directly across from a renovated, windowed hall bathroom. The third bedroom with eastern exposures benefits from brilliant morning light. A windowed laundry room with full-size side by side washer and vented dryer and a staff bathroom complete this wonderful home. 161 East 79th Street is a well-regarded boutique cooperative ideally located near museums, shopping, restaurants and transportation. Pet friendly, 50% financing and 2% flip tax paid by purchaser. Storage available. Pied a terres permitted on a case by case basis.
