Apartment 7A is a bright and cheerful Classic 7 home nestled on a beautiful tree-lined street overlooking landmarked townhomes. You enter the apartment through a spacious entry foyer that graciously anchors the home. With beautifully scaled rooms and a great flow, this corner residence offers 3 bedrooms and 4 full baths. There are two master bedrooms, each with an en-suite bath and double exposures, and a third bedroom of equally significant size.
A bright formal dining room leads into a large windowed kitchen that has been combined with the staff room to create an eat-in kitchen, complete with another full bathroom. Adjacent to the dining room is the living room, spacious in size with a decorative fireplace and a built-in bar - a perfect space for entertaining. The apartment has three exposures, south, west and north that offer beautiful natural light and sun all day long. There are many closets throughout the home, lovely hardwood floors, dental crown moldings, through-the-wall air units, and lovely oversized windows. There are only three residences on each floor and the hallways and lobby have recently been renovated.
Staffing at 179 East 70th is exceptional, with 24-hour doormen, a live-in resident manager, and porters that provide impeccable service. The building offers a new fitness center, two elevator banks and a service elevator, bike storage and a large individual storage locker that is transferred with each apartment.
