It's Free to Look: 79 East 79th Street

The adjectives in Sotheby's listing for 79 East 79th Street kind of knock the wind out of you. 

This property is "bountiful," "extraordinary," "superb," "beautifully proportioned," "impressive," "wonderful," "excellent," "prestigious," and, don't be too surprised, that's just the beginning. There are many more colorful words that can be used to praise this $12.75 million real estate. 

Firstly, this full-floor apartment sits high atop a prestigious prewar cooperative, is flooded with light, is distinguished by lovely open vistas of Central Park, features bountiful southern exposures, and is filled with superb period details. Together, what does all this mean? "The epitome of elegance and refinement." But of course. 

The dining room's proportions are beautiful, the corner living room is impressive, and the corner master bedroom—which adjoins a second bedroom to create a spacious suite—is wonderful and oversized. 

Finally, the most important detail of all: the air conditioning is magical—it's "thru-wall." Score! — Sam Levin
