1960s Jewel on the Upper East Side
Elegant two bedroom two and one-half bath 1575 square foot home on fashionable East 71st Street west of Third. The apartment has generous sized rooms with a very desirable floorplan. The large bedrooms and full baths are on opposite wings, and the center circulates beautifully with a spacious living room, bay-windowed dining area and a library/den plus the pass-through windowed kitchen and powder room. It's ideal for both living and entertaining. They just don't build them like this anymore! (Note: the powder room can be converted to a laundry room, and a third bedroom could be created if desired.) The eastern exposure over the avenue provides great light and the home is super quiet thanks to the brand new windows the building just installed. The apartment is also in excellent (mostly original) condition with virtually all of the midcentury-modern details intact including the original doors and hardware, real parquet floors and fabulous vintage bath-vanities that truly must be seen! The Townsend is a luxury full-service doorman apartment house built as a co-op in 1962. Amenities include: a full time live-in resident manager with staff, a gym, a garage, individual storage, a children's outdoor play area, laundry room and a bike room. This offering is a perfect opportunity for the buyer who is looking for real value and a sense of "Old New York" but with all the modern amenities of today. Pied a terre ok. Sorry no dogs. Maximum financing 40%. Showings by appointment only. Contact me today!
