229 E 79th is a quiet mid-block Yorkville doorman building (which is pet friendly). Apartment #11E is a wonderfully large and bright one bedroom home. This spacious 1920's residence offers unobstructed views of Manhattan's historic south Yorkville which is enjoyed from all rooms. From the very spacious foyer, one may enter left into the inviting living room. To the right, the bright bedchamber with super views. Both living room and bedroom each have two great inviting windows and there is generous light in both kitchen and the spacious dining area. The sense of the apartment's size and charm are accentuated by its incredible overall livability, framed by fantastic 10+ foot beamed ceilings and period oak plank flooring. Original detail provides legitimate period charm, as does the kitchen where the majority of the original 1927 cabinetry and hardware have been nicely restored. 229 E 79th is a cooperative building with a professional staff and an effective board. The manicured finished roof deck offers a great combination of solitude, light and shade mixed with an overlaying breeze. Bike storage space is available. A large laundry is located in the basement. Building is heated by gas and is included. Excellent schools from Pre K to high school (both private and public) are throughout the neighbourhood. The East River Walkway and Carl Schurz Park are nearby, where there is a sizeable activity area: playground, fountains, slides, sandbox and other facilities for basketball and street hockey. The Park also has two enclosed dog walks. With the 79th/2nd SBS bus access and the new Second Avenue subway(Q), the rest of the City (or home!) is so much closer.
