The classic seven: That increasingly rare breed of New York City apartment, almost non-existent among condos, was much more often seen in the pre-war era, before building owners felt the need to pack as many people as possible into every square inch. This particular specimen in The Gatsby at 65 East 96th Street can be found on the market for $3.195 million in its most likely habitat, the Upper East Side, and it’s a beauty. Everything has been perfectly updated for 21st-century living and gorgeous pre-war details are at their best. There are even building amenities, plus the freedom of condo ownership, but mostly it’s the kind of apartment that only needs to show its floor plan.

Built in 1924, The Gatsby is one of the neighborhood’s few condominiums. With only four units per floor, it underwent a large-scale renovation that restored its prewar detail and classic style. This pristine three-bedroom home boasts a great room that’s clearly divided into three separate spaces, plus three large bedrooms, all with plenty of closet space. A stylish interior aesthetic and a modern, gracious flow complement herringbone floors, high ceilings, and custom moldings and millwork.

A colorful entry hall with the first of many helpings of generous closet space opens on one side into a southern-facing living room. The other side leads to a great room (family room, dining room and kitchen) that provides more open living space.

Everything is present and accounted for in the chef’s kitchen, recently renovated with luxurious marble countertops, a custom banquette, a six-burner Wolf range and SubZero/Miele/Bosch appliances, including a 156-bottle wine fridge and under-counter refrigerator drawers.

The home’s private quarters are well separated from the living and dining zone; a corner-windowed master bedroom is an impossible 11′ x 16′.

That said, all of the home’s three bedrooms are spacious and have enough “plentiful custom fitted closet space” to mention it by name. We’re thinking a sleek, modern condo would have at least one more/bigger baths, but the extra breathing room–and plentiful closet space–might just be worth it in this case.

Located between Park and Madison Avenues steps from Central Park The pet-friendly Gatsby is within minutes of the subway and offers a full time doorman, fitness room, and even more storage space.
