Upper East Side apartment hunters will be saying a little prayer to land singer-songwriter Burt Bacharach’s former pad, which just hit the market for $3 million.

The newly renovated two-bedroom co-op at 166 East 61st Street features a 1,100-square-foot landscaped balcony. It’s being offered for the first time in 25 years, after being transferred to current owner Nadia Smeallie Griffin in 2011 for just $575,000, according to Curbed.

“When I first met [lyricist and collaborator] Hal David, I was 27, single and living with my dog Stewba in a nice apartment with a tiny terrace overlooking Bloomingdale’s,” Bacharach told the Daily Mail in 2013. This was in the 1950s, and Bloomingdale’s, at Third Avenue and 60th Street, is still there.

Ryan Serhant and Colby Billhardt of Nest Seekers International have the listing. [Curbed] — Tess Hofmann
