Built in 1929 by Bing & Bing and designed by prolific architect Emery Roth, this bright one-bedroom co-op at 225 East 73rd Street is as classic as it gets. Part of the Eastgate complex, this Upper East Side home has plenty of pre-war charm in the form of beamed ceilings, original hardwood floors, and gracious proportions, with the cozy surprise of a wood-burning fireplace. It’s now available for $725,000.

The south-facing apartment boasts a fresh coat of paint to complement the all-day sunlight. Radiator heat keeps things toasty in winter, and window A/Cs keep things cool in summer (electricity is included in the maintenance fee).

The apartment is charming from the start, with an arched hallway leading into a spacious combined living and dining space. There are two large storage closets here, and room for an office nook. A south-facing galley kitchen is fresh and bright, with butcher-block countertops and loads of cabinets.

A large, sunny bedroom has a walk-in closet. The bright bathroom has vintage vibes, with a pedestal sink and updated fixtures.

The well-respected Eastgate co-op complex has an impressive set of amenities, including full-time staff, a resident manager, a 24-hour doorman, a renovated gym, a central laundry facility, storage, bike storage, and a landscaped and furnished roof deck. The pet-friendly co-op allows pied-a-terre ownership, co-purchasing, guarantors, and sublets.
