The perfect one-bedroom home now being offered for sale in the storybook row of townhomes famously known as the 'Black and Whites'. This special group of historic buildings are positioned at the end of a cobblestoned cul-de-sac on East 72nd Street with a promenade overlooking the East River. In other words, a slice of heaven in the middle of Manhattan! This feel-good apartment oozes with charm and provides much-needed respite at the end of a busy day. The spacious combined living and dining room is ideal for entertaining and includes a decorative fireplace that can be restored back into wood burning. Lovely mirrored french doors lead to the bedroom and windowed ensuite bath and large walk-in closet. The windowed galley kitchen is fully outfitted including a dishwasher and stackable washer and dryer. Further details include hardwood floors, 9-foot ceilings and oversized windows that provide an abundance of light and partial views of the East River. This well managed cooperative provides a live-in super who happily accepts packages, central laundry, private storage, bike storage, recycling center and a common rear sitting area. The neighborhood offers a wide array of retail, restaurants and excellent public transport including access to the Q train just 2 blocks away! Pets are welcome too. There is a 3% flip tax split between buyer and seller and a monthly assessment of $231 in place through September 2022.
