On the market for the first time in 40 years. Overlooking 88th Street and Madison Avenue in Carnegie Hill, this sprawling, pre-war residence enjoys a generous floor-through layout with triple exposure to the north, west and south. Neighbor to only one other residence, 7C is an especially unique apartment that offers a wonderfully private and tranquil living environment. Employing a large and open-plan design, this apartment is home to 3 bedrooms with 3 en-suite full bathrooms, a formal living room, separate dining room, kitchen, and maid’s quarters with en-suite bath that can be converted to a fourth bedroom.
Upon entering the unit, you are immediately blown away by a massive gallery foyer spanning over 30 feet long and 7 feet wide. Running laterally through the apartment, the gallery connects the living room to the left with the dining room to the right and consolidates access to the three bedroom suites across the way. With enough wall space for a beautiful art collection, this is truly the piece-de-resistance—dressed in tile with the original herringbone wood flooring underneath to match the living and dining rooms floors.
Moving left to right: the industrious living room faces south and boasts a functional wood burning fire place and built in working space; the third bedroom, equally suitable as a private den or home office, relishes in immense afternoon light with west and south facing windows; along the central boudoir corridor is a linen closet and access to the master and second bedroom; the oversized master suite comes with abundant closet space, a built-in dressing vanity, cozy window seat for daytime relaxation, and an en-suite master bath with stall shower and tub; the second bedroom also offers plentiful space, closet storage and an en suite bath; with French-like doors, the enormous dining room bridges the gap between the gallery and the rest of the apartment—the maid’s quarters and kitchen, conveniently located to one another for ease and practicality; the kitchen, which features north and west facing windows, includes an extra sink area, full pantry, big island for cooking and sufficient room for eat-in dining. The considerable sized rooms, high beamed ceilings, and overly generous closet space grace the apartment throughout, and provide an amazing skeleton for a rare renovation opportunity.
Situated in one of the neighborhood’s most charming pre-war co-ops, 7C is a block away from Central Park and the Guggenheim. 47 East 88th Street is a 16-story, pre-war co-op distinguished by its large-scale, classically designed apartments, and handsome brick and limestone façade. With a discreet canopied entrance on East 88th, just east of Madison, this 58 unit cooperative has a full-time doorman, live-in resident superintendent, resident lounge, separate laundry room and gym.
