1209 N Astor Street 8S
Three Bedrooms / 2.5 Baths / DeGiulio Renovated Kitchen
Twelve Nine, as the 1209 Astor Corporation was referenced when the cooperative was first offered for sale in the Gold Coast 1927, is a conservative red brick and limestone trim façade with Georgian details. Only 16 stories and 30 units, the handsome building is at home among the mansions on Astor Street that, as the developer’s brochure described, “stands apart from distressing motor traffic—quiet, secluded, aristocratic.” Designed by architect Alfred S. Alschuler, the six and seven room apartments on semi-private floors feature a formal dining room, generous bedrooms and bathrooms, and wide floor plans with space for quiet enjoyment and gracious entertaining. Residents receive excellent service from an attentive engineer and staff and twenty-four hour doormen. There is a fitness room, and one of the prettiest private gardens in the city, designed and maintained by Scott Byron and offering a peaceful seating area apart from the dining location with tables and gas grills. Unique to Twelve Nine is a furnished one bedroom apartment that residents may reserve for guests for a nominal housekeeping fee. There is no weight limit for one dog.
Residence 8S with a classic black and white marble foyer is in mint condition with exceptional upgrades including a deGiulio butler’s pantry and kitchen with top brand appliances. The wide 2,500 square foot floor plan features three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a half bath, a dining room currently being enjoyed as a family room, and a laundry room.
The monthly assessment of $3,875 includes the 2017 property tax of $21,198
