149 East 73rd Street was built in 1925 by the architect James E.R Carpenter Jr., considered one of the finest architects for luxury living in New York City. With only 23 apartments, this UES residential cooperative building is a rare find. This stately 8-room home with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms was thoughtfully renovated with meticulous attention to details, materials and craftsmanship and has special features including a washer & dryer and PTAC thru-wall air conditioning. Enter residence 3B from your own private elevator landing, a rare amenity for any building. The welcoming foyer has custom-designed and hand-painted Gracie wall covering, announcing the grandeur of this home. The regal living room is spacious, light-filled with high ceilings and herringbone floors. The elegance of this room is framed by oversized windows and a classic mantel over the wood burning fireplace. Enter through two grand doors, with fluted columns on either side, into the formal dining room. An open wet bar and large serving area allow for effortless entertaining. The windowed kitchen is a cook's delight with rambling countertop space, excellent cabinet storage, and a large double door pantry. High-end appliances and a washer/dryer complete this modern kitchen. The flexibility of this home's floor plan makes for endless possibilities, which can be suited to your needs, such as: 2, 3 or 4 bedrooms, and/or a library, playroom, guest room, or home office. The first bedroom, which is currently a library, has an oversized closet and access to a beautifully renovated windowed full bath with tile and fixtures from Lefroy Brooks and Waterworks. The corner second bedroom is so large that there are currently two beds, two desks, a big closet and has excellent light. The third bedroom is well proportioned and is adjacent to the third full bathroom. This charming room could also be a playroom or a guest room. The primary bedroom suite, 4th bedroom, has two exposures with views of gardens, and is whisper quiet. There are three closets plus a large walk-in before even entering the bedroom, as well as a custom built in wardrobe/dresser in the bedroom. The en suite windowed bath is noted for the timeless and classic materials including fixtures by Lefroy Brooks and tiles by Waterworks and Ann Sacks. The eighth room is currently a wonderful home office, with plenty of room for a large desk, files and extra storage space, which you may not need as a storage cage (10 feet tall, 7 feet wide and 8 feet deep), transfers with the apartment with no additional charges. 149 East 73rd Street has a resident manager, full time doorman, porter and handyman. With only twenty-three homes, the staff has the ability to give white glove service to all the residents.
