320 East 72nd Street, Apt 8A
Located within a distinguished boutique co-op on the Upper East Side, this truly extraordinary home exhibits fearless contemporary design, set against a palette of charming pre-war detailing. The unit is currently configured as a three bedroom, but can be easily converted back to its original four bedroom/four bath layout. Featured in the pages of Elle Decor Spain, The Style Edit, and Modo de Vida Magazine the Venezuelan roots of designer Maria Gabriela Brito can be sensed throughout, a sentiment that even earned the space a spot in the celebrated art consultants own award-winning book.
The striking foyer entry sets the tone for a bold, yet playful aesthetic, which is backlit by pre-war beamed ceilings, crown moldings, and the original hardwoods. The expansive great room features oversized windows, and an elegantly-framed wood-burning fireplace as the focal point, flanked on either side by beautifully crafted built-in shelving. The generously proportioned formal dining space is just adjacent, and enjoys the same bright northern lighting. Coming full circle, the windowed chefs kitchen connects back to the entry via an eat-in breakfast room, and offers more than ample counter-space, a full-sized pantry, and top of the line appliances including a Subzero refrigerator, Wolf stove, Miele dishwasher, and built-in washer & dryer with utility sink. The private bedroom wing offers three bedrooms, each with its own en suite bath, and a fourth guest den with a separate half bath. The corner master bedroom enjoys natural light from multiple exposures and a walk-in closet, as does the second bedroom.
A private storage unit is included in the purchase of the home, and a second staff room on the first floor is available for sale separately.
Enjoy a sense of privacy as the 19-story building houses just 42 units. 320 East 72nd Street is a distinguished full-service cooperative allows up to 65% financing and is pet-friendly with an elegantly renovated lobby, superior staff, live-in superintendent, a bike room, and an additional central laundry. This locale entails great Upper East Side centrality, with amazing access to a diverse set of dining options, quaint shops, museums and the N & Q train 72nd Subway Station and the cross-town buses are just around the corner.
