Designed by renowned architects Rosario Candela and Mott B. Schmidt and completed in 1937, 19 East 72nd Street is considered by many to be an architectural masterwork, and it is among the Upper East Side’s finest addresses. This splendid duplex residence on a high floor boasts very pretty outlooks and an abundance of sunshine, high ceilings, and beautiful hardwood herringbone floors. Further, the inviting layout and inherent elegance of the apartment are complemented by copious original detail. Accessed by a semi-private elevator landing, the attractive Gallery opens into the grand and light-filled Living Room with a wood-burning fireplace. The Living Room has glorious open views over double-width East 72nd Street, which is lined with gorgeous townhouses. Nearby, a stately, well-proportioned Dining Room has serene northern views above the townhouse rooftops of 73rd Street. A Powder Room and coat closet are conveniently accessible from the Gallery. Beyond, a service Pantry leads to a bright and cheerful Kitchen and Breakfast Room. This area, which also accesses a convenient back staircase, includes several large spaces and closets, all of which could be unified to create a sizable and inviting Kitchen. A gracefully curved staircase in the Gallery leads upstairs, where the private quarters are comprised of a delightful Primary Bedroom with open southern vistas, a huge windowed bathroom, and a copious walk-in closet. There are three further Bedrooms, two of which are very generously sized and have large ensuite bathrooms and very ample closets. Among its many significant architectural attributes, 19 East 72nd Street features an impressive and attractive lobby with outlooks onto a stylish central courtyard garden. The limestone building’s canopied entrance is framed by a series of distinctive bas-relief animals by the sculptor C. Paul Jennewein, whose work is central to the design at Rockefeller Center. Impeccable staffing at this white glove cooperative includes a 24-hour doorman, porters, and a resident manager. 19 East 72nd Street also features a private fitness center and offers designated storage bins. 50% financing is permitted. Pets are welcome.
