Old world elegance abounds in this grand scale nine room home, available for the first time in many years. Located in one of the Upper East Side's most coveted boutique, white glove buildings, the apartments are beautifully appointed with prewar details and grand proportions. This home offers magnificent entertaining space complete with high ceilings, oversized windows, and beautiful herringbone floors.

A private elevator landing leads to a gracious entry gallery with a cozy reading nook. Step down to a grandly scaled, airy, corner 35' wood-paneled living room facing South, where decorative plasterwork adorns the 10-foot-high ceiling. This magnificent room has floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, two distinct seating areas and a working fireplace. It is truly the heart of the apartment and overlooks lovely and leafy gardens. An elegant formal dining room, also facing South, leads to a large eat-in kitchen, two staff rooms plus bath, one now being used as a laundry room.

Separated from the entertaining rooms by a private hallway, the bedroom quarters feature a southwest corner primary bedroom suite with a wood burning fireplace and double walk-in closets. The primary bath is large and there is an additional bath off the primary bedroom.
Two additional well-proportioned bedrooms with Jack and Jill baths also flow off the hallway. Each bedroom faces North onto 79th Street. Two staff rooms could easily be combined to create a spacious fourth bedroom with its own bath.

Designed by Pleasants Pennington & Albert W. Lewis, 66 East 79th Street was built in 1926 on the former site of three row houses of the 1880's. There are 15 floors and 19 apartments -- most being private full floor apartments. Perfectly positioned on the south side of East 79th Street, between Madison Avenue and Park Avenues, 66 East 79th Street is a full-service doorman coop minutes from Central Park. This residence enjoys close proximity to the city's many attractions, including its most important museums, elegant shops of Madison Avenue, and fine dining.

Fifty percent financing is allowed, and there's a 2% flip tax, and a live-in resident manager. Pets are allowed with board approval, and there are storage bins and a fitness room.
