Property Description


NEW LISTING! This fabulous UES Classic Six apartment, with 3 Bedrooms/2.5 Baths (the half bath can be converted to a full bath) and featuring grand scaled rooms, high ceilings and pre-war qualities, is the home you have been looking for! 150 East 73rd Street, Apt 4A is a spacious, light-filled corner six room apartment in a highly desirable, premier coop. The apartment has beautifully proportioned large rooms, oversized windows, open views, and an expansive floor plan, including a dramatic nearly 36-foot-long open living space, with the corner living room flowing gracefully into the adjacent separate dining room, perfect for entertaining. Located on a beautiful tree-lined block of landmarked townhouses near Central Park, this home offers classic, timeless and comfortable living.

This elegant apartment has 9'2" high ceilings, incredible light and open city views to the west and north through oversized windows and features pre-war detail, including beautiful herringbone wood floors throughout and crown moldings. From the semi-private elevator landing, enter the apartment's entry foyer which leads to a spectacular large, bright corner living room with oversized windows, and anchored by a wood-burning fireplace, built-in cabinetry, and flowing to the adjacent inviting dining room. Between the living room and dining room are beautiful floor-to-ceiling pocket doors. With the pocket doors fully open, the impressive living room/dining space spans almost 36-feet and is perfect for entertaining and comfortable living. When the pocket doors are closed, even partially, you have the feel of separate rooms for a more intimate living space. The versatility of the space is incredible!

The two main bedrooms off of the foyer, in a separate wing from the public rooms, are spacious and private, with sunny and bright western exposure and open views, and ample closet space. Each bedroom has a marble en-suite bath. The roomy third bedroom, originally a staff room, has a built-in bunk bed and office space, a huge closet, built-in storage and a full marble bath. The spacious, windowed eat-in kitchen has room for a large table or banquet for casual dining. The kitchen is equipped with a five-burner stove, updated appliances, beautiful cabinetry and great counter space. The adjacent large butler's pantry has striking original glass-doored cabinetry, additional serving counters and storage space, and an under-counter washer/dryer. Through-wall A/C throughout the apartment.

150 East 73rd is a handsome full-service building built in 1923, with an elegant lobby, full-time doormen and resident superintendent. Individual large private storage bin transfers with the apartment. Located in the heart of the Upper East Side, it is near Central Park, surrounded by boutiques, food markets, and restaurants; convenient to schools; and accessible to the nearby 6 and Q subways and major bus lines.

Pied-a-terres and pets permitted. Maximum financing 50%. Flip Tax: 3% payable by buyer. Sorry, no weekend showings.

Three Beds in Upper East Side


Upper East Side | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Exuding a cosmopolitan, refined air that is reminiscent of Paris or other European cities, the Upper East Side (the UES, to local cognoscenti) has a reputation as being a bastion of wealth and privilege. Even though it was built by American “royalty” families like the Vanderbilts, Roosevelts, Kennedys, Carnegies and Rockefellers, whose elaborate mansions once anchored Fifth Avenue, there are affordable housing options throughout the neighborhood. The further east you move, away from Central Park and the more commercial avenues, the more likely you are to find quiet, tree-lined streets with historic townhouses and brownstones. Keep your eye out for reasonably priced apartments in pre-war low-rise and even a few high-rise buildings.

With abundant, beautifully landscaped green spaces, including the oasis of Central Park acting like a backyard, the area is quiet and lushly green. You can relax and unwind in John Jay Park, Carl Schurz Park or take a stroll along the East River Promenade. The whole neighborhood seems isolated from the workaday chaos of the city at large. Add to that the history of the neighborhood and the abundance of cultural institutions, and you have a uniquely welcoming neighborhood.

Known for its abundance of high-end retail shopping, especially on Madison Avenue, the Upper East Side is host to the Barneys New York flagship department store. Here you can find upscale goods, fashion and home decor items. You will also find the edgy runway-inspired Alexander McQueen collections. If you are dying to treat your feet to red-soled opulence, be sure to visit the Christian Louboutin boutique. These are only a small sampling of this high-end shopper’s paradise that features everything from designer boutiques that offer the ultimate in haute couture to resale shops where you can find last season’s best on sale at hefty discounts .

There are many unique dining experiences, from fine dining to the casual bite-on-the-go, awaiting you in the UES. Sushi is going through a renaissance in the city, and the best omakase-style sushi can be found at Sasabune on E 73rd Street. Omakase sushi means that you leave the choice of ingredients, preparation method and presentation to the chef. Elegant French cuisine can be experienced at JoJo, E 64th Street, housed in gorgeous townhouse. Just for fun, visit the Lexington Candy Shop on Lexington Avenue, to get a taste of an old-fashioned soda fountain.
