535 E 72nd St # 3C

535 East 72nd Street, Unit 3C, Manhattan, NY 10021


Artfully featured in Cottages & Gardens and situated in Manhattan's Storied 'Black and Whites’, this 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom fully renovated, turnkey home is the perfect combination of historic restoration and modern elegance. Perched on the third floor above a tree-lined, one of a kind cul-de-sac and beside a cobblestoned park overlooking the East River, no detail was spared in this thoughtful light-filled home.

The entry foyer leads into a sun-drenched living room with four large South-facing windows with river views to the East, which are coated with a UV light treatment. The functioning wood burning fireplace boasts a carefully restored mantle, complemented by beautiful Blue De Savoie stone. Custom built-in cabinetry with custom hardware line either side of the fireplace, adding elegant matching bookcases and extra storage space.

Situated in the center of the home, the beautifully renovated chef’s kitchen features Statuary marble countertops and backsplash. Venetian plaster walls compliment the marble as light pours in through the original East-facing windows. This kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances including a Wolf range and hood, Subzero refrigerator and wine fridge and Viking microwave.

As you pass the kitchen down the gallery hall, you’ll find the private bedroom wing. The spacious primary bedroom features two oversized North-facing windows. The secondary bedroom, which is currently configured as the most incredible dressing room, is also a large space with bright Northern exposures that face a quiet courtyard. The windowed primary bathroom features a glass enclosed shower, marble floors and walls and WaterWorks fixtures. The second bathroom features the original bathtub and fixtures, which were refurbished, replated and reglazed to add that special touch that this home deserves.

The home has been tastefully enhanced with customized recessed lighting, three custom built-out closets, picture lighting in the living and dining area, new hardwood floors with a full mahogany border and herringbone 'mats' at both entries and custom front doors to match the building.

535 East 72nd Street is located in a historic 1894 landmark townhouse row complex called “The Black & Whites”. At the end of this 72nd street cul-de-sac, which is paved with cobblestones, there is a charming park with panoramic views of the East River. With 20 units, this urban oasis was the original home of The Paris Review and its exterior has been featured in countless films and photoshoots. This established co-op is pet friendly, has a bike room, storage, a friendly live-in resident manager and a full-time handyman. Timeless, elegant and made for modern living, this beautiful home is ready for it’s next steward.
