Built in 1927, a 7-room 2-story duplex located in 133 East 64th Street, “between Park and Lex” in the Lenox Hill section, is on the market.  It features 11’ ceilings and 4000 living sq ft. There is a wrap-around terrace with lovely Central Park views from the 12th floor. Style is neo-classic.  The building is a “white glove cooperative.”

 The Chef’s kitchen has terra cotta tile floors, white cabinets, high end stainless steel appliances and counters, and a  walk-in pantry.  Staff quarters are adjacent.  Four elaborately carved marble fireplaces and a greenhouse extension add to the list of features.  The greenhouse extension is a breakfast room seating six, facing the east terrace. 

An elevator opens directly into the 14’x12’ foyer.  Off the foyer is a red granite powder room with a window.  The formal dining room has two pairs of French doors leading to a landscaped terrace.  The 27’x16’ living room with French doors opening to a 36’x15’ terrace with glimpses of Central Park.  Note the Palladian windows, hand carved moldings, herringbone wood floor and fireplace. 

Private living quarters on the 11th floor are reached by an elliptical staircase with undulating matchstick railing.

The master suite includes a fireplace, decorative silver-leaf ceilings, two his-and-hers walk-in closets, and “her” bathroom in white marble with Jacuzzi bath and glass shower in the corner plus “his” with black granite throughout.  There are two more bedrooms.
