One of the best values on the market for a true prewar classic seven, this chic and spacious apartment has a perfect layout. Accessed off of a semi-private landing, the proper foyer enters into a spacious living room with 9' 4" ceilings that are enhanced by architecturally-striking raised doorways. Adorned with Gracie wallpaper, the formal dining room is used as a handsome library with built-in bookshelves. Off of the dining room is a butler's pantry, windowed eat-in-kitchen as well as staff room with half bath and washer dryer.
A private bedroom hallway, accessed off the foyer, leads to three bedrooms. At the end of the hallway is the primary bedroom with two closets and an en suite bath with double sinks. The lovely second and third bedrooms share a well-placed hall bath. Located on the hallway is an oversized linen closet which doubles as storage. Notable details throughout the apartment include herringbone floors, through-the-wall air conditioning and abundant prewar patina.
