If you want to come home to the best of everythingcome home to this.An ideal opportunity for a two-bedroom conversion, this sublime, sunny, south-facing, prewar one-bedroom, one and a half bath apartment with formal dining is larger than many two-bedrooms at this price point in comparable buildings; approximately 1325sqft . (In fact, two-bedrooms at 19 East 88th are only slightly larger, approximately 1400sqft, and sell for considerably more.)In its current configuration this apartment typifies the classic elegance of Art Deco design with a gracious and fluid layout perfect for entertaining and live/work. However, given the grand proportions of the living room (24' x 15'), one could easily convert the formal dining room into a true second bedroom or use it as a dedicated office and still have ample space for living, dining and entertaining. Located in one of Carnegie Hill's most sought after full-service landmark co-ops, just off Fifth Avenue and around the corner from the Guggenheim,19 East 88th Street is one of the finest examples of Art Deco architecture in the city; designed by noted architect William M. Dowling. This rarely available C-line apartment, one of just a few in the building, features: new south-facing casement windows in every room, high-beamed ceilings, ample closet space, original wood flooring with Art Deco marquetry, and decorative moldings throughout.The apartment's large entry foyer (8' x 10') functions as an extension of the formal entertainment spaces and unifies them. From the entry, one can step down into the expansive sunken living room on the right (24' x 15)' or enter the formal dining room (14' x 12') directly ahead. And this exceptional fluidity of space is further enhanced by the dining room's accessibility from the entry foyer, living room, as well as the kitchen, enabling these distinct spaces to flow into one another seamlessly.To the left of the entry foyer, a hallway leads to a powder room for guests as well as a large closet before arriving at the door of an oversized bedroom suite (20' x 12') which features three large closets, one being a walk-in, a windowed ensuite bath, and a dressing area (6' x 6'). Bathed in southern light and large enough to accommodate a king-size bed and allow for additional furnishings, a seating area, or a dedicated office area, this generously proportioned and dreamy oasis has a distinct remove from the rest of the apartment, affording added privacy and quietude.One of the most desirable addresses in Carnegie Hill, 19 East 88th Street has a meticulously restored and beautifully maintained grand Art Deco lobby, a landscaped roof deck with stunning panoramic views, and is located just steps from Central Park and the Museum Mile. The building's extraordinary staff includes a live-in Superintendent and, in addition to the roof deck, there is central laundry and an exercise room is scheduled for completion in Fall of 2021. Storage units are available for shareholders, but there is currently a waiting list. Washer/dryers and central A/C are both permitted with board approval, and pets are allowed.Located close to all forms of transport, countless restaurants, cafes, retailers and cultural institutions, there is a Morton Williams supermarket less than a block away.PLEASE NOTE: The building permits a maximum of 50% financing and showings are not permitted on Sundays. Pied--terres are not permitted, this must be the shareholder's primary residence.
