Who needs lifestyle tips from Goop when you can live like Gwyneth Paltrow instead? That’s right. 320 East 72nd Street has an apartment designed by Maria Gabriela Brito, self-proclaimed luxury lifestyle consultant with a Rolodex full of clients like P. Diddy and Gwyneth. The colorful Lenox Hill apartment is not afraid to show its fun side, and it’s now on the market, asking $3.795 million. The Brazilian-inspired design is definitely not for the faint of heart, but Brito anchors the vibrant accents with a neutral backdrop, creating a lively yet sophisticated space.
When you enter the newly renovated unit you’re greeted by a beautiful foyer with striking black and white floor designs. This entrance gallery flows nicely into the living and entertaining spaces. A set of double doors leads to the spacious living room, which features beamed ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace.
Another set of double doors in the living room takes you into a beautiful formal dining room with intriguing wall art and colorful vases. The gourmet chef’s kitchen has one of the home’s more daring palettes with elaborately patterned wallpaper in the breakfast room. However, white cabinets and stainless steel appliances help tone down the dynamic design.
Off the kitchen is a fourth bedroom that currently serves as a playroom. The private sleeping chambers consist of three additional bedrooms, each with en suite bathrooms. A corner master and second bedroom benefit from additional light from southern exposures.
320 East 72nd Street is a prestigious white glove building with a newly renovated lobby and a large, friendly staff. The prewar co-op is near renowned schools and restaurants, and the apartment comes with a large private storage unit. A separate maid’s room on the first floor of the building is available for an additional $150,000.
