Located on a high floor, spanning 2,400 square feet, this three-bedroom co-op at 180 East 79th Street has just become available for the first time in many years. Asking $2,595,000, the Lenox Hill apartment is a standard classic six with pre-war bones, from its beamed ceilings to a gracious entry foyer and step-down living room.
Enter via a semi-private elevator landing and step into the long, sweeping foyer. A high-floor address means the apartment is filled with light. Amber-stained hardwood floors contrast the pale walls that frame the space.
Step down into a living room anchored by a wood-burning fireplace and framed by large picture windows. Adjacent is a large formal dining room with built-in shelving.
Also off the entry foyer is a thoroughly modern, timeless eat-in kitchen. Behind the kitchen, in the usual pre-war style, is a staff room with a full bath that serves as a home office or third bedroom suite.
On the west side of the apartment is the bedroom wing. The primary bedroom has spacious walk-in closets and a large full bath. The second bedroom gets its own huge walk-in closet and private bath.
The pet-friendly Art Deco co-op building features an elegant lobby in classic uptown Manhattan style. The full-service building offers a 22-person staff, including 24-hour door and hall attendants, porters, and a live-in resident manager.
Amenities include a large common laundry room (washers and dryers are also allowed in units), a recently-equipped fitness center, bicycle storage, and large storage cages. Common spaces have a new high-volume ventilation/exhaust system that recycles the air every 15 minutes.
