There is central air conditioning throughout this magnificent home, in-wall speakers-discreet lighting- and double glazed city windows for whisper-quiet, dust-free living. An elegant and discreet powder room is conveniently located for guests. 156 East 79th Street is a long-established, well-managed, pre-war co-operative with 24-hour doormen, a brand-new refurbished marble lobby, porters and a resident building manager. Basement facilities include a laundry room, bike room, assigned storage cage and access to a paved courtyard. The building is pet friendly and allows 50% financing.
