Let There Be Light
The views are kind of meh at 205 East 59th Street. Just kidding! Actually, quite the opposite (emphasis courtesy of Prudential Douglas Elliman's listing): "VIEWS, VIEWS, VIEWS AND LUXURY AWAIT YOU IN THIS SPECTACULAR LOFT LIKE HOME!" When the listing screams at you, you can't say no!
Let there be light in this $2.395 million property, which has east, north, and west exposures. What can you see in these "Majestic Views?" Central Park, the Dakota, Central Park West, expansive easterly views across the 59th Street Bridge, and the East River. The sites are viewable from oversize floor to ceiling windows, too.
Let's face it, though: Views can only buy you so much happiness. It's what's on the inside that counts, right? Well, the property features three bedrooms, three full marble and stone baths, complete with a balcony, a gas fireplace, and Brazilian hardwood floors.
Will the family like it? Yes, indeed! There's a garden terrace, flower garden, mahogany roof deck, open space for yoga, lounge chairs, tables with plenty of seating, and a shaded veranda for all to enjoy.
Will dogs like it? Yes, indeed! Pets are welcomed by their very own puppy park.
One final question—should you buy it? The listing has a strong answer for you: "Make this your home!!" —Sam Levin
