If you love the classic architecture and elegance of the Upper East Side, this charming co-op at 1 East 66th Street deserves a look. Located in a coveted Fifth Avenue full-service building designed by renowned architect Rosario Candela in 1949, the apartment benefits from five-star hotel services and plenty of amenities. Within, the turn-key home, asking $2,495,000, is bathed in south-facing light and blessed with Central Park views.
Enter through a foyer that’s a decorator’s dream. The spacious living room is framed by decorative moldings, herringbone wood floors, and nine-foot ceilings. Highlights include oversized bay windows and plenty of space for dining and entertaining. A recent thorough renovation added all-new heating, through-wall A/C, and upgraded plumbing and electric.
A marble-clad l-shaped galley kitchen offers 20 feet of countertop space, punctuated by top-of-the-line appliances including a Miele refrigerator and a Bertazzoni range. For added convenience, there’s a washer/dryer in the unit as well.
For optimal privacy, two bedrooms are on opposite sides of the apartment. The graciously proportioned primary bedroom suite boasts a custom walk-in closet and built-in shelving. A smaller second chamber has an en-suite bath.
The building, said to be the architect’s last, offers rare hotel-style services that include a 24-hour doorman, a concierge, an elevator operator, an on-site restaurant and room service, a resident manager, maid service, a gym, a pet spa, and a laundry room. The pet- and pied-a-terre-friendly building also offers basement storage.
