On an historic and typically lovely tree-lined Upper East Side block between Park and Lexington Avenues, this sprawling 2,400-square-foot duplex co-op at 125 East 74th Street is as elegant and old-school as it gets, with modern interiors and laid-back charm. The listing points out the “European style and flair” of this classic eight, asking $4.25 million, with four bedrooms upstairs and plenty of entertaining space below; according to records, the home’s current owner is Charlotte Sarkozy, ex-wife of Mary Kate Olsen’s husband, financier Olivier Sarkozy (who is also former French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s half-brother). As if that weren’t enough of a pedigree, the building was also Jackie Onassis’ childhood home.
The apartment’s entry foyer reveals a curving staircase beyond which a south-facing living room overlooks the neighborhood’s landmarked townhouses. Prewar details throughout include a wood-burning fireplace, built-in bookshelves, oak floors and high ceilings.
A gracious dinning room is lined with windows and more custom bookshelves. Completing this level is a renovated white marble-clad kitchen, a large pantry and a maid’s room with a private bath.
Upstairs, the ceilings reach nearly 10 feet above four sun-filled bedrooms and two baths. A south-facing master suite has its own wood-burning fireplace, unusually generous closet space and a large private bath.
The intimate, pet-friendly full-service doorman co-op building boasts a live-in super, a private garden, a new gym room, a bike room, a newly refurbished laundry room and a storage room.
