When your home boasts a marble mantlepiece that originally belonged to the Plaza Hotel, you know you’ve got something special. Such an item can be found at this prewar co-op, on the market for $1.995 million at the Lenox Hill building 333 East 68th Street. The owner, a former Saks Fifth Avenue executive, took on the designer Lindsay Coral Harper to gut renovate it. She transformed a traditional two-bedroom co-op was into a luxurious bachelorette pad that melds new luxury finishes with restored historic details.

The highlight of the south-facing living room is, most definitely, the Plaza’s mantlepiece that frames a gas fireplace. (Talk about a conversation starter for any New York architecture buffs.) Adjoining the living room and accessed through pocket doors is the custom-built, west-facing library with bookshelves and storage. It’s also pre-wired for high speed internet and TV.

The windowed, south-facing kitchen is eat-in. Although the kitchen looks pretty typical for a luxury renovation, the dining area pops with a quirky, zebra printed door. Other perks in here include a large pantry with a wine refrigerator, custom-made wooden cabinetry and a hand-stenciled floor.

The master suite is lined with three large windows and boasts a glorious walk-in closet, with its own dressing area and built-in shoe armoire. A marble bathroom is also attached to the bedroom.

315 East 68th Street is the type of full service, white glove cooperative the Upper East Side is known for. Residents not only get to enjoy classic prewar apartments, but also a common garden, gym, extra storage and bike storage.
