Incredible opportunity to purchase a prewar Classic Eight Room apartment in a coveted cooperative that is connected to the famed Carlyle Hotel.
A semi-private elevator landing leads to a gracious entry foyer and into an impressive separate gallery with herringbone floors. The expansive 27'10" X 16' 10" foot living room with wood-burning fireplace is flooded with western light and has delightful vistas of Central Park. Off of the gallery is also an oversized formal dining room perfect for entertaining. The dining room leads to a wonderful butler's pantry and spacious eat-in-kitchen designed by Smallbone and complete with top-of-the-line appliances. Off of the kitchen is a separate original staff area, that would make an ideal laundry room, with two additional staff rooms and a shared bathroom.
Off of the gallery, there is a private bedroom vestibule that leads to an oversized primary bedroom with two walk-in closets and an ample en suite bath. The spacious second bedroom also has an en suite bath. These bedrooms enjoy morning light to the East. There is also a striking library, or third bedroom, complete with en suite bath and sunny western exposures with tree top Central Park views.
Built in 1929 and known as The Carlyle House, this prewar cooperative has a full-time doorman, live-in Superintendent, and wonderful long-term staff. There is a storage unit that transfers with the apartment and 25% financing is permitted.
The Carlyle House and the Carlyle Hotel were designed to appear as a single facade and together radiate New York's classic Art Deco style at its best. As a resident of 50 East 77th Street, one has the benefit of using all of the Carlyle Hotel amenities through a separate lobby door that leads to the hotel. Some of these amenities include the Fitness Studio, Hair Salon and Room Service on a pay per use basis.
