Welcome to 215 East 72nd Street, an intimate full-service prewar cooperative comprised of 30 homes – two per floor –

designed in the grand style of New York’s famous architects, Emery Roth and Rosario Candela.

THE ROOMS:
The generously proportioned rooms and the traditional layout makes Apartment 5W a true “Classic 8”. All the rooms are neatly arranged around an expansive 29-foot entrance gallery.

The residence features 3 full bedrooms and 3 baths, a large south-facing living room with a woodburning fireplace, a stately formal dining room replete with a butler’s pantry, and a spacious cook’s kitchen. There are 2 maid’s rooms, one of which is currently used as a studio for the artist in the family.

A library, originally the master bedroom, opens to the living room through pocket doors adding to the already lavish entertaining space. A former hallway was converted into a 13-foot long walk-in closet off the master bedroom.

THE LIGHT AND VIEWS:
Surrounded by low-rise buildings on three sides (south, west, and north), the residence enjoys an extraordinary amount of natural light as well as pleasant street and courtyard views.

THE “BONES”:
Apartment 5W exudes prewar charm and detail! The dramatic beamed ceilings are an exceptional 9 feet and 7 inches tall. There are built-in bookcases and a woodburning fireplace — picture moldings and hardwood floors run throughout. All three bathrooms are windowed and have period subway tile, cast-iron tubs, pedestal sinks, and recessed full-length medicine cabinets.

Every window was replaced and through-wall air conditioning installed in the living room and library/den. There are a washer and a dryer in the kitchen.

THE BUILDING:
215 East 72nd Street is in an ideal location – just off Third Avenue, near the new 2nd Avenue subway — convenient to the finest shopping and dining the Upper East Side offers. It has 24-hour doorman service and a laundry room. A free storage bin transfers with the apartment. A 2% flip tax helps to ensure that the building’s excellent financial and physical condition is maintained.
