Originally built in 1883, Manhattan’s first co-op at 34 Gramercy Park East was described as “a craggy, mysterious red brick and red terra-cotta pile whose Queen Anne forms are among the city’s most spectacular,” in the 1988 AIA Guide to New York. A rare listing in the nine-unit building has just hit the market for $1,750,000, and it comes with a coveted set of keys to Gramercy Park. The two-bedroom unit features beautiful original moldings, wood floors, a decorative fireplace, and exposed brick accents.
With an L-shaped floorplan, one wing of the unit is an expansive 28-foot-long open living and dining area with high ceilings and ornate light fixtures. The listing describes the space as having “the old-world elegance of nineteenth-century Paris,” and we tend to agree.
The kitchen was recently renovated with custom wood cabinetry, granite countertops, a hooded Viking stove, a dishwasher, a SubZero refrigerator, and a wine cooler. A stacked washer and dryer are tucked away in a closet for convenience.
A narrow hallway leads you to the more private wing of the house, where you’ll find the bedrooms. A wall of exposed brick provides a centerpiece in the master bedroom, with an original fireplace. Though it’s only decorative now, it can be converted to gas.
There’s also a second bedroom and space for a small home office.
Residents of the pet-friendly building enjoy a 24-hour doorman, live-in building manager, a package room, private storage, central laundry, and bike room.
