Sprawling one bedroom, one bath that offers great Upper East Side value and truly a space to feel at home. Apartment 12M is a large well proportioned home on a high floor facing North with exceptional city views. You enter into a gracious gallery, which opens up Into a huge living room, and to the right is an extremely large interior alcove which can accommodate twelve for dining, or be turned into a separate room, which many people have done in this line. The bedroom is massive, and the closets space is abundant throughout. The apartment was lovingly renovated about 20 years ago, so needs some updating - but it has been kept in excellent condition and still boasts beautiful hardwood floors throughout and tasteful moldings. The windowed kitchen uses it's space very well, with excellent storage and counter-space, still having room for a small sitting area at the window. The open views are very beautiful and impressive as you enter the apartment, and the light from the wall of windows is enjoyed all day. It's a rare combination to have such special views and a quiet apartment at the same time! 425 East 79th Street is a full service co-op featuring a magnificent roof-deck, 24 hour doorman, and live in resident manager. In addition to the furnished planted roof-deck there is a common courtyard with trees and benches which you can access from the lobby level. It is a pet-friendly building and co-purchasing, gifting, guarantors, and subletting are permitted with Board approval.

The neighborhood is ideal, moments from John jay Park, Carl Schurz Park, the East River Promenade, and even a public library and post office around the corner! Also around the corner you will find fabulous cafes, restaurants, markets (a favorite is Agata and Valentino), and great shopping.
