Property Description for 201 East 79th Street, 11-B

Apartment #11B at 201 East 79th Street is the epitome of luxurious Manhattan coop living. Truly a turn-key proposition, this recently renovated and impeccably maintained oversized one bedroom stretches to nearly 1000 square feet and includes all the modern amenities one expects in a home of this magnitude. There are 7 3/8" wide-plank white oak floors, which have the added luxury of soundproofing. The open kitchen extends 18 feet, and includes a Miele washer/dryer, quartz countertops, a breakfast bar, and a built-in desk for home office use. All appliances are top of the line, and feature an oven and microwave by Bertazoni, dishwasher by Bosch, refrigerator by Liebherr, and a wine cooler by Kalamera. There is a large set-back terrace accessed through the bedroom. The expanded windowed primary bath has heated floors, double sinks, and an oversized glass enclosed walk-in shower, and a Toto Washlet toilet. There is also a guest half bath. The new HVAC system has 3 zones, and is controlled by individual thermostats in each room. The generous closet space is custom designed for maximum usage. A small storage bin located in the basement is also included at no additional cost. 201 East 79th is a twenty-story, 160-unit co-op, built in 1963. It is located just steps away from the Second Avenue and Lexington Avenue subway lines, crosstown bus service, Central Park and some of the world's finest museums and restaurants. There is a private garden for residents at the lobby level and a parking garage below ground. 201 East 79th has had virtually all its mechanical systems replaced or enhanced and recently completed a multimillion-dollar re-cladding of the entire structure with a porcelain tile "curtain", which will improve the building's energy efficiency and drastically reduce, if not eliminate, water penetration and the substantial costs of complying with New York City's Facade Inspection and Safety Program (formerly Local Law 11). The recent work also included a full renovation of the lobby and hallways. Additional services and amenities include a 24-hour doorman, porters, a full-time resident manager, laundry facilities, a package room, a bike room, and an attentive and friendly staff. Pets and Pied-a-terres are permitted with coop board approval.

One Bed 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.
