Sun-filled and sprawling, this 3 bedroom + library pre-war duplex features soaring ceilings, towering windows, exquisite architectural details, and East River views. At approximately 2800 square feet with the flexibility to convert into a 4 or 5 bedroom, the apartment offers great value to the discerning buyer.
Situated on the southern corner of 79th Street and flanked by landmarked low-rise buildings, protected southern light floods the apartment late into the day. A chic conversion from a 1910 factory-building, the apartment has lofty 11 foot ceilings and windows reaching to 8 feet. Given the exceptional height of the ceilings and windows, the top floor stands significantly elevated above street level. Furthermore, the former-factory walls create serious soundproofing. The apartment is silent and serene, filled with sunlight but not sound.
On the top floor of the duplex, an elegant foyer and gallery provide a formal introduction to the magnificent rooms that follow. Each room offers exquisite architectural detail and rich finishes including mahogany doors, raised paneling, custom built-ins, and a one-of-a-kind bar beckoning old world New York. A 25 foot long living room fit for grand-scale entertainment flows seamlessly into a finely appointed mahogany paneled library. A formal dining room sits on the southeast corner and boasts a lovely East River view. The large windowed eat-in-kitchen is fully equipped with top-of-the-line appliances -- Viking stove, Subzero fridge, and Miele dishwasher -- custom cherry cabinetry and marble countertops. A spacious bedroom, currently used as a den, with en-suite bath and ample closet space completes the main level.
The lower-level, entered by stairs from the apartment's gallery or by elevator (or stairs) from the building's beautiful lobby, features two bedrooms, easily converted to three. A massive, double-sized master bedroom (26' x 13') contains a cavernous walk-in closet with dual mahogany doors. A well-proportioned third bedroom (18' x 9') could alternatively function as a large home office, playroom or media room. Since both of these rooms benefit from the accessibility of a separate entry, they could equally serve as offices for a home-based professional. A spa-like marble bathroom features whirlpool tub, steam shower and bidet. A large laundry/storage room with linen closet is conveniently located next to the second entry.
Steps away from the East River Promenade and a few blocks from Carl Schurz Park, 2 East End Avenue is located in an idyllic cul-de-sac of the Upper East Side, yet enjoys superb access to the rest of New York via the FDR drive and 2nd Avenue Subway. This full-service prewar co-op boasts grand scale apartments of a bygone era, luxurious black and white marble Art Deco lobby, attentive 24 hour staff, resident superintendent, two exercise rooms and private storage. Pet friendly!
