About 131 East 66th Street, 8/9C


This fabulous apartment is a grand three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom duplex in the elegant, Italian Renaissance-inspired Studio Building. The home has extraordinary, unique features including spacious rooms with lofty ceiling heights and ornate original detail. The approximately 3,000 square foot home also includes an impressive foyer, a grand great room, an inviting library, a formal dining room, and a large kitchen.

You are welcomed into a beautiful foyer showcasing a stunning, winding staircase. Beyond the foyer lays the monumental great room. A towering glass window allows natural light to encompass the living space. A magnificent decorative fireplace sits at the center, adding to the warm and welcoming allure of the room. Dark, coffered wood beams stand out, framing the ceiling and highlighting the impressive height of nearly 20 feet! This room is truly a masterpiece.

Moving beyond the great room, guests are led to the home’s library. There is an undeniable charm to this room which features built-in bookshelves, and a double window that overlooks the landmarked St. Vincent Ferrer Church.

In addition, this first floor contains a stately, formal dining room that shares the same stunning view as the library. Through the dining room, residents may access the windowed, eat-in kitchen which is equipped with all necessary appliances including a dishwasher and an in-unit washer/dryer.
The upper level of the home includes three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The primary bedroom is spacious and includes a walk-in closet and a double window with sunny, south-facing views. The sizable second bedroom features its own walk-in closet! The third bedroom sits apart and may alternatively be used as an office or study.

Included in the sale of Apartment 8/9C is a service room located on the 12th floor and a storage bin in the basement.

Located within the Studio Building, 8/9C is more than just a home, it is a piece of history, part of a designated city landmark, and an honor to behold! The Studio Building is an iconic limestone-clad cooperative building on the corner of 66th Street and Lexington Avenue. The structure was designed by Charles A. Platt, one of the foremost architects of New York City and the United States at large. This doorman building is pet friendly and located on the Upper East Side. Sitting on the corner of 66th and Lexington it is only a short walk from Central Park and major public transportation.
