Grand and Gracious Classic Seven
Combining old-world grandeur and comfortable elegance, 11C is a quiet 3-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home perched on a high floor and drenched in sunlight. This rarely available and fully renovated Classic 7 in a sought-after Rosario Candela cooperative is fabulously located just off Fifth Avenue and one building down from Central Park.
A gracious entry foyer welcomes you to a wonderfully proportioned living room replete with prewar details, over-sized windows, open city views, high ceilings, custom built-ins and a beautiful wood burning fireplace. Adjacent to the living room and perfect for entertaining is the over-sized formal dining room boasting south and east exposures. The gourmet windowed kitchen includes a thoughtfully incorporated breakfast bar, premium finishes and top-of-the-line appliances. Separated by a butler's pantry is a home office, which could easily be converted into a media room or guest bedroom.
A private bedroom hall leads to the master suite with private marble bathroom as well as two additional sizeable bedrooms that share a separate bathroom. Gorgeous hardwood floors, a powder room, through-wall A/C, externally vented washer/dryer, and an abundance of closet space complete this not-to-be-missed gem.
8 East 96th Street is a pet friendly, full-service prewar building with central laundry, private storage, and a bike room, nestled just off Museum Mile and close to terrific restaurants, public and private schools, shopping, and transportation. There is a 2% flip tax paid by the buyer.
