955 Lexington #8C

New York, New York City, NY







Year Built

Natural sunlight bathes this renovated, high-floor Classic 6 apartment which is brimming with prewar charm. On the corner of 70th Street, 955 Lexington is prime Upper East Side real estate. This apartment faces high over the buildings to the north, east, and south offering sun and blue skies from all three exposures. At a peaceful distance from the street, the apartment is serenely quiet. The spacious living areas feature a wood-burning fireplace, high-beamed ceilings, original wood floors, lovely six-over-six paned windows, through-wall air conditioning, and crown and base moldings. The corner dining room has resplendent light, a unique and expansive curved wall of windows, and French doors.

The newly-renovated windowed kitchen can be accessed from the foyer or the dining room and features a Viking range, full dishwasher and Liebherr refrigerator. The staff room is located directly off the kitchen and has its own full bathroom both with unobstructed views. The elegant foyer leads to the bedroom hallway, lined with closets, and to two large bedrooms facing east. Both bedrooms get extraordinary light (the primary bedroom has double exposures) and share a nice, windowed bathroom. A stacked washer/dryer completes this wonderful apartment.

Built in 1924 and designed by Rouse & Goldstone, 955 Lexington is a boutique 12-story co-op with a live-in resident manager, a full-time doorman/elevator operator, and a newly-constructed roof garden. The apartment comes with private storage and the building provides firewood for residents during the winters. There is a 2% flip tax. 50% financing allowed. Pets and pied-a-terres welcome.
