It doesn’t get much more classic Upper East Side than this two-bedroom, sixth-floor co-op on a quietly elegant street just off Park Avenue. The limestone-anchored 1928 building at 125 East 74th Street, designed by Lafayette A. Goldstone, as the NY Post informs us, was the early childhood home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Unit 6A in this pretty prewar building is on the market for $1.39 million. Famous associations aside, the gracious layout of the apartment, which started out having eight rooms and was reconfigured to its current five-room state, looks to be a pretty good deal for the price given its size and location.
On the light-filled sixth floor of this neo-Italian-Renaissance style building, which became a co-operative in the 1950s, the apartment overlooks the elegant townhouses below. An oversized living room has lit bookshelves and a wood-burning fireplace. The apartment is available furnished, so you don’t even need to supply your own Upper East Side decor.
The living room opens to a large separate dining room next door. The apartment has lovely dark wood floors and lots of prewar details like high ceilings and arched doorways throughout. The windowed kitchen and bath have been updated and renovated.
The south-facing master bedroom has the outsized proportions you often find in these classic pre-war co-ops. A second bedroom/home office/den, complete with classic uptown-red wall treatment, is tucked in next to the master.
The full-service 24-hour doorman building has a live-in superintendent, storage, bike room and laundry.
