131 E 69TH ST#8THFLOOR
Upper East Side, New York City, NY, 10021
Step out of your private elevator vestibule and enter into an oversized and square front hall warmed by a woodburning fireplace. This full floor apartment gives one the feeling of being in a townhouse - that is if it could exist all on one, high floor with open exposures to the East, South and West. Crown moldings, exquisite millwork and arched doorways enhance the living spaces, as do four woodburning fireplaces. The proportions of the entertaining rooms as well as of the five bedrooms are wonderfully generous. The 30 foot living room has four large, south-facing windows. The paneled library, a corner room, is of ample size for a large desk, a backgammon table, and a sofa and chairs to fit comfortably around the fireplace. Yet it is also cozy. It is side by side with a wet bar and nearby to an attractive powder room. The formal dining room, with its western exposure, is flooded with afternoon sun. The corner eat-in-kitchen, a combination of several rooms, features light through four large windows, top of the line appliances, room for a dining table as well as counter seating, generous cabinet space, and a desk area. The spacious primary bedroom enjoys abundant closet space, and a sunny and quiet exposure over townhouses within this Upper East Side Historic District. The highlights of the marble bath include a soaking tub, stall shower and double sink as well as an open exposure to the East. The additional four double bedrooms and three baths are of similar size to each other. Remote controls operate the through the wall air-conditioning in all major rooms. The residence also includes a staff room and bath and separate laundry.
The full service building, built in 1924, features a resident manager; a common roof terrace; individual storage cages, as well as bike storage and common wood storage.
