Welcome to this turnkey, high floor, fully renovated East 70's prewar residence where the open kitchen and wood burning fireplace are the home's heart and soul. Clad in white custom glass-fronted cabinetry with calacatta gold marble surfaces, the professionally equipped kitchen features a center island and separate windowed breakfast nook. Flooded with soft light throughout, the home lends itself to relaxed elegance with private spaces for family members. The list of special features is long: oversized windows, coffered ceilings, handsome wood floors, restored original hardware, French doors, generous custom fitted closets, including his and her walk-ins, to name a few. A former Formal Dining Room serves now as family recreation center. A staff room functions as an office set apart from the open living space. Each of the three full bathrooms is windowed. The ensuite bath in the primary bedroom has an oversized walk-in shower and built-in linen closet, and the 3rd bath away incorporates a washer/dryer. Included with the sale is a versatile 14.5' room located on the building's first level overlooking lush gardens (additional $585 maintenance). This bonus room can be used for live-in staff or guests or as an office away from home. A locked walk-in, floor-to-ceiling storage closet also transfers. 340 East 72nd Street is an intimate, full service, white glove prewar (built 1930) with only 33 residences, a common landscaped garden, bike room and a newly renovated gym--no charge for either bike room or gym. Convenient to transportation and some of the city's best shopping and dining destinations, the co-op permits pets and 50% financing. As an added perk, the co-op supplies wood for the wood burning fireplace.
