50 East 72nd Street is one of the few Upper East Side condominiums that was built before 1940. Blessed with the classical Georgian brick and limestone architectural features of a grand Park Avenue co-op, it is ideally located between Madison and Park Avenues. The location couldn’t be a more convenient home base to Central Park, fine dining, luxury shopping, and New York culture. Rentals in this stately 15-story brick pre-war are rare. Apartment 14C, offered for rent for the first time ever, is a sophisticated apartment in excellent condition, sleekly renovated in neutral colors. The welcoming apartment measures about 1100 square feet, and features high 9’ ceilings, newly-refinished, striking herringbone hardwood floors. There is discreet, dimmable recessed Lutron lighting, a cozy wood-burning fireplace, thermopane windows, custom mouldings and millwork. There is a full-size, brand new LG washer and dryer in unit, and new windowed a/c units. There is a plethora of custom closets and built-in storage, Italian-designed by Poliform. Both bathrooms were recently gutted, re-arranged, and re-clad in matte-finished limestone. The primary bath has a large walk-in glass waterfall shower, a new Toto toilet, and a workbench-style vanity with a large rectangular Farmhouse sink. The secondary bathroom is similar in design, and features a luxuriously deep Jacuzzi tub. The proper foyer has an elegant curved wall and slab limestone flooring which extends into the kitchen. Besides the new washer and dryer, the kitchen is outfitted with a custom Subzero fridge and coordinating wine cooler, Miele oven and broiler, and a five-burner Miele gas range. Counters are Caesarstone, and there is ample overhead storage in modern custom units. The apartment has excellent indirect natural light from the West, South and North, with oblique views of the steeple of St. James’s Church, Madison Avenue, Central Park, and downtown to Billionaire’s Row. It is a quiet apartment. All the windows have new linen roller blackout shades. The building, with 15 floors, also offers a central laundry and bike storage. Residents enjoy full-access to a wonderful landscaped roof terrace with gardens and spectacular 360 degree views of the City. A minimum one-year renewable lease and immediate occupancy is offered. All application, managing agent and brokers fees are the responsibility of the tenant. Unfortunately, no pets are allowed. Easy to show – call or text for an appointment.
