Prized Full Floor Trophy Residence
Controlling the entire 9th floor high atop one of the Upper East Side's most coveted boutique white glove prewar buildings, this immaculate and sophisticated high floor four bedroom, four and a half bathroom home is blissfully appointed and exudes a timeless elegance based on a fresh interpretation of prewar classicism.
This sun-drenched 10 room home showcases 4 corner exposures and 25 windows. Meticulously redesigned with studied proportions, the residence features high ceilings, cerused oak wood-paneled walls & chevron pattern oak floors, and oversized windows looking out over Park Avenue, with side views of Central Park.
The private elevator landing opens into a dramatic entry foyer with an Irish Blue limestone starburst floor, wainscoting, and a scalloped plaster cornice with high arched ceilings. Past the cloak and powder rooms, one arrives to one of the most magnificent formal entertaining spaces in Manhattan; a 40' long corner Grand Salon. Framed by 7 oversized picture windows and soaring 11' height ceiling, the salon is anchored by an Augustine Dark Brown marble gas fireplace, and is ideally situated adjacent the grand dining room. Passing through enfilade, one enters into a glorious corner informal den with antiqued, wire-brushed oak floor. Ample windows flood the space with natural light, making it a favorite gathering place adjacent to the grand windowed eat-in chef's St. Charles kitchen, separated by a bar of semi-precious stone. The mint windowed kitchen is equipped with top-of-the-line appliances throughout, including double Miele dishwashers, double sinks, separate Subzero refrigerator and wine fridge, Wolf induction and gas range, double ovens, and vented hood.
Separated from the entertaining rooms, the private quarters feature a south west corner primary bedroom suite with wood burning fireplace and double walk-in closets. There are two additional well-proportioned ensuite bedrooms, one of which is also a corner. An attractive library (or future 5th bedroom) boasts a ceiling with an antique map of Manhattan framed by wenge paneling and resides directly off the grand foyer, leading into a private sound proofed windowed home office. There is a complete service wing with staff's bedroom, fourth full bathroom, and laundry closet off the kitchen area. A Creston system is in place throughout as well as motorized window shades, and central integrated A/V as well.
Perfectly positioned on the south side of East 79th Street, between Madison Avenue and Park, 66 East 79th Street is a full service doorman coop moments to Central Park. This residence enjoys proximity to the city's many attractions, including some of its most important museums the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Frick, the Guggenheim, and more.
