Lovely outlooks from this magnificently renovated prewar apartment. Best location in the East 70s, Manhattans "Gold Coast". Perched high on the 11th Floor, facing west and overlooking historic 70th Street townhouses. Memorable views of snowfalls and fireworks! Beautiful thick paneled cherry wood folding doors (fabricated by an extraordinary artisan) separate the living room and bedroom, allowing for the use of the full expanse of space when desired. The wood-burning fireplace has a striking marble mantel and hearth. A full-size kitchen with top-quality cabinetry and appliances includes a washer and dryer. There is one full bath with a shower and also a powder room. The flooring throughout is pietra cardosa, a stone ideal for urban living. This is a truly wonderful place as either a full-time or pied-a-terre residence.
