THE YORK GATE, 25 East End Avenue, 12C - Upper East Side, New York

 

Leave the city's chaos behind for a serene and sun-drenched oasis hanging over the East River.

Featuring spectacular river views in every room including kitchen and bathrooms, this charming 2 Bedroom plus double maid's room apartment provides a meditative retreat of natural beauty and tranquility. Tugboats pass by as sunlight floods in from oversized windows with eastern and southern exposures

A gracious semi-private landing and foyer lead to elegant living spaces ornamented with prewar details: a 20-foot-long living room with a wood-burning fireplace; a formal dining room with herringbone floors and oversized picture windows; a galley kitchen, also featuring herringbone flooring, with Miele washer and dryer. Two generously proportioned bedrooms both with windowed en-suite baths overlooking the river. What better way to wake up than staring onto the rhythmic flow of the East River?

A newly installed Central AC system adds an update of modern comfort to the prewar details transporting one to a bygone era of old world luxury.

The 2 bedroom apartment comes with a separate maid's room on the second floor filled with abundant light from large windows facing the avenue. This private quarters serves well as an office or guest room. To purchase it for the cost of the 2 bedroom apartment is a rare opportunity, as the rooms normally transact at an additional cost as a separate sale to buyer.

Built in 1929 by renowned architecture firm Cross and Cross, 25 East End was the avenue's first apartment building, marking the beginning of the era of East End Avenue's grand, white glove pre-war co-ops. It still stands as one of the avenue's finest co-ops and most architecturally-unique edifices, with rich, old-world ornamentation such as the distinctive Medusa bust crowning the arched limestone pediment. The lobby is exceptionally beautiful, with an intricate carved-wood entryway, black and white marble floor and decorative fireplace that have been preserved from the 1929 original. Complementing these old-world details are a wonderfully attentive full service staff with a 24 hour doorman, elevator operator and live-in super catering to tenants' daily needs. The building is pet friendly and has a large state of the art gym, cage-storage and a bike room. Steps to Carl Schurz Park, the East River promenade and Gracie Mansion. 50% financing.
