163 East 81st Street 4A

Upper Eastside,  NYC



Contract Signed

The quintessential example of an Upper East Side Classic 6, Apartment 4A is appointed with impeccable details. This stunning home has been renovated to include all of life's modern amenities, while still preserving its classic, pre-war heritage.

A gracious gallery welcomes you home and sets the stage as you enter the oversized living room complete with wood-burning fireplace, custom built-ins and south facing, picture windows offering views of treetops and the handsome brownstones on East 81st Street. The coffered ceilings with recessed lighting dress the living room, adjacent formal dining room and continue throughout this masterfully finished home.

The fully renovated butler's pantry and kitchen are well suited to the consummate chef and discerning entertainer; finished with custom cabinetry and millwork, Calcutta Gold Marble countertops, vented Wolf range with grill, Subzero refrigerator and wine cooler, and Miele dishwasher. An original maid's room is located between the kitchen and dining room. Larger than most, it could easily be a third bedroom or repurposed as an office. It includes a powder room and a vented Bosch washer and dryer that replaced the shower stall.

The two primary bedrooms are also south facing, and well proportioned. An elegant retreat, the master bedroom suite is located at the end of the bedroom hallway. Not short on storage, the room is fitted with a full wall of custom cabinets, a deep walk-in closet, and third hanging closet. A beautiful en-suite bathroom is new, having just undergone a gut renovation and is complete with walls of white sheet marble, intricate mosaic floor, and Rohl hardware. The spacious second bedroom enjoys the light from the southern exposure and is directly across the hallway from another renovated white marble clad windowed bathroom.

163 East 81st Street is a boutique pre-war Co-op with only four apartments per floor, and offers a 24-hour doorman and live-in superintendent. The building is pet friendly and pieds-a-terre are considered on a case by case basis. There is a 2% flip tax paid by purchaser.Please call for an appointment - truly triple mint, this is a must see apartment!
