19 E 72ND Street Unit: 16a

Perched high atop 19 East 72nd St, this superb 11 into 10 room aerie boasts extraordinary views of the southern skyline panorama as well as clear views to the north, open views to the east and oblique views of Central Park to the west. The grand entertaining rooms all open off of an impressive 24' rectangular Gallery. There is a vast and light-filled Living Room boasting four windows and a wood burning fireplace, while the handsome walnut paneled Library includes a whimsically positioned corner fireplace; both rooms have the benefit of marvelous southern exposures. The elegantly proportioned Dining Room enjoys birds eye views over the picturesque roofscapes of the townhouses to the north. There is also a conveniently placed Powder Room and Wet Bar. The service quarters include a large Butler's Pantry and Kitchen with much of the original St Charles cabinetry. Adjacent there is a spacious Breakfast Room and three exceedingly oversized Staff Rooms with two Baths and very open and wonderful views. The south facing bedroom wing is comprised of a delightful corner Master and ensuite Bath featuring sweeping city vistas and a beautiful planting terrace. Beyond there are two large additional Bedrooms; one with a big en-suite bath and the second with another enormous sized corner bathroom, along with ample closets. All of the Bedrooms enjoy the benefits of a charming and ambling planting terrace and stunning outlooks. Many significant original details such as soaring high ceilings, lovely polished hard wood peg and plank floors, understated yet bold tray moldings and divine period bathroom hardware remain in situ, while the sun flooded residence has been meticulously conserved with tremendous respect paid to its architectural integrity. An extremely desirable and versatile floor plan further distinguishes the apartment making it ideal for a sophisticated owner accustomed to an impressive lifestyle, yet also very appropriate for cozy and happy family living.
