This 2 bedroom/2 bath is a modern classic. Ideally located on the edge of leafy Tudor City, it is just a 5 minute walk from Grand Central. The Essex House, an architecturally significant building erected in 1929, has bike storage and a laundry room. It is full-service and feels like a fortress. The apartment is south facing with a calming direct view of a large, beautiful tree. Light fills the living room and larger bedroom without being too bright. The rooms are spacious and thoughtfully upgraded. Details are simple and clean. The kitchen has a Wolf stove, Viking microwave & dishwasher, Miele refrigerator/freezer, granite countertops and stone floors. There is ample storage that includes built-in wine storage. Recessesed lighting with dimmers is throughout the apartment. The remote controlled air conditioners are through-the-wall, so the charm of original pane windows is unobstructed. Both the living room and bedroom are flat screen/cable installation ready with hidden cables and wall hardware. Bedroom closets are outfitted with organized storage. Both bathrooms are equally well done and the wood floors are in the excellent, refinished condition. Pets will be considered on a case-by-case basis. This apartment is available depending on 30-day application approval process. Please note, flex walls are not permitted. Fees are one month's rent for a security deposit, one month's rent, one month's rent for the broker fee and a $300 co-op application fee.
