Art Deco Gem! This stunning top-floor, corner apartment has been beautifully designed to balance prewar style with tasteful contemporary upgrades making it a truly gracious and comfortable space to call home. Serenity abounds with views from all windows of treetops, townhouses and open skies. Enter through a foyer wrapped in Jim Thompson wall paper with floors of original hardwood leading to the charming dining alcove and oversized living room. Natural light pours in from the double bay windows flanked by built-in floor to ceiling book shelves. At just under 10ft, these ceilings are the tallest in the building. The central living room connects to the dining alcove through a dramatic curved archway, a nod to the building's art deco history. An 8ft pass-through with a custom built black granite counter between living room and windowed kitchen creates the impression of an open kitchen while minimizing any commotion. Lacquered cabinetry, stainless steel appliances (including a 5-burner gas range), newly tiled floor and walk-in pantry affords plenty of space efficiency for chefs and friends of the chef as well. The corner master bedroom has both a north and west exposure, a generous newly outfitted closet and a gorgeous Ann Sacks tiled en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower. (If you sing in the shower with 10 foot ceilings, you'll sound more like Ella Fitzgerald) All closets are deep and spacious and have been upgraded and redesigned to maximize storage and convenience. Discreet overhead lighting has been thoughtfully installed throughout. 225 E 74th Street was built in the 1930's by Horace Ginsbern. The building's faade, formal entrance and lobby, all with spectacular original detailing, are a celebration of Manhattan's Art Deco era. This street is one of the UES's most idyllic tree-lined blocks and home to some of the City's most popular restaurants JG Melon, EJ's Luncheonette, Mission Ceviche and Bread's Bakery - The Best Babka in NYC (New York Magazine). Citarella is steps away and close proximity to the Q-line (a favorite among true locals) opens up easy access to midtown west and the theater district. This is a pet-friendly co-op with a full-time doorman, live-in resident manager, basement laundry room, a landscaped courtyard, bike room, and storage available for rent. Co-purchasing, parents buying for children, pied-a-terre allowed. 80% financing permitted; 2% flip tax divided by seller & buyer.
