12 Beekman Place #8D is an enormous one bedroom home with a separate dining alcove in a very special white glove coop. Nestled on a charming and supremely quiet two-block stretch in the Beekman enclave, this post-war building has amazing door people, porters and resident manager, and the soul of a prewar building. The living room of #8D spans twenty-two feet with five large windows facing south into a large, bright and quiet courtyard. Currently being used as two separate seating areas, it can easily accommodate both living and dining, which would leave the dedicated, fifteen foot dining alcove for a home office or second sleeping area. The windowed, galley kitchen has great storage, including two pantry cabinets, as well as an oversized, French-door refrigerator, full-sized dishwasher, microwave and stove/oven combo. The central kitchen placement promotes maximum privacy between the bedroom and living areas. An updated bath is clean and neutral, with recessed lighting, brass finishes, new tiling and a new vanity. The south-facing, surprisingly bright bedroom is truly king-sized with two large closets and room for plenty of furniture. Speaking of closets, there are 6 total in this apartment so storage will never be an issue. Even so, there is building storage by waitlist.
Built in 1957, 12 Beekman Place is a well-established cooperative offering impeccable service. An elegant wood-paneled lobby is presided over by a full-time doorman, a porter, and a lovely resident superintendent. The coop is pet-friendly, and has onsite parking (waitlist), storage, a common garden and central laundry. Pied a terres are considered and 65% financing is allowed. The flip tax is 2% split between the purchaser and seller. For all appointments, contact the exclusive listing agents.
