Rarely does a fully renovated “Classic 6” with such elegant proportions and charming pre-war details come available in this Lenox Hill full-service, white-glove cooperative. The current owners spared no expense in a renovation to exacting standards, including new double-paned windows, baseboards, rewired electricity, sound wiring, thru-wall air conditioning units, hardware installed in all bathrooms, raised ceiling heights, custom cabinetry, and an entirely new kitchen.
From the semi-private landing, shared with one neighbor, enter into the pin-drop quiet home via a graciously sized entry gallery that leads to the entertaining spaces. Its 9-foot, 2-inch beamed ceilings complement the east-facing living room. Inundated with natural light, it features a wood-burning fireplace with a custom Chesney marble mantel and hearth. The living room seamlessly flows into the dining room, featuring custom cabinetry and easy accessibility to the kitchen via pocket doors. Designed to be either open or closed, the versatile eat-in kitchen features soapstone countertops and stainless steel appliances including a Viking range and a Bosch oven. Adjacent to the kitchen is a cozy breakfast room (easily convertible to a third bedroom) with a custom banquette, full bath, and laundry area with washer/dryer.
The superb layout offers a clear delineation between public and private areas, separating the two spacious bedrooms and their en suite baths from the home’s entertaining wing. The home also offers an abundance of storage, as well as a private storage unit in the basement.
Located on a bucolic tree-lined street, 136 East 64th Street is a 62-unit cooperative built in 1928 with full-time doormenn and staff and a live-in superintendent. Pets are welcome. Located in Lenox Hill, you are only moments away from Central Park and the high-end shopping, dining and culture of Madison and Fifth Avenues. Easily accessible via subway and major thoroughfares.
