Two apartments were combined—a one-bedroom and a larger studio—to create this charming and large one-bedroom co-op in Lenox Hill. While it has its space going for it, the apartment’s color scheme also lends it an air of openness. Pastel yellows and pinks may not be for everyone (check out that bedroom!), but the apartment does have a soothing quality about it.
Now, to the details: the co-op’s been refinished to include two built-in electric fireplaces, one in the living room and one in the master bedroom; a petite-yet-workable kitchen with a Viking stove and hood, Subzero refrigerator, and Miele dishwasher; two updated bathrooms, one including an ever-so-luxurious heated towel rack; personal temperature controls; and closets fitted with automatic lights. A portion of the living area can be walled off to create a second bedroom.
The apartment at 520 East 72nd Street is on the market for $1.14 million, and there’s a reason—it’s just steps from the FDR Drive. Maintenance runs $1,796/month.
