In an architecturally striking 1929 apartment building designed by George F. Pelham, among the elegant residences of tree-lined 75th Street half a block from Central Park, this unique two-floor co-op at 14 East 75th Street is the picture of Upper East Side perfection. Set up as a “classic six,” dramatic details like sixteen vertical feet of windows go beyond classic. According to the listing this duplex, asking $3.85 million, is the first available in the building in 20 years.
On the fifth floor, the entry foyer leads to the light-filled living room with sixteen-foot ceilings–and windows just as high–and a wood-burning fireplace.
Adjacent is a party-sized dining room (note the ebony-stained herringbone floors). A perfectly situated windowed office completes this collection of front rooms.
A vented kitchen with a wine refrigerator and washer/dryer (set into a convenient miniature laundry room) is adjacent to the dining room, also with an added pass-through window. On this floor also is that classic maid’s room–now a guest/third bedroom with a separate full bath.
A staircase (you can get here via the building’s elevator as well) brings you to the upstairs foyer where a stylish balcony overlooks the living room. Down the hall are two master-sized bedrooms with equally ample closets and en suite windowed baths.
Modern necessities are more than covered, including Pella double hung insulated windows, McQuade cooling systems in every room and upgraded electrical throughout. Building amenities at this highly sought-after cooperative include a private gym, a full-time doorman and lobby staff and private storage. Income from street-level store leases protects the maintenance–which is an also-ample $5,372 monthly.
