Take advantage of this rare opportunity to design a spacious home in an unrivaled location. Create two of the hardest things to find together in Manhattan -- value and luxury. Apartment 3E4E can be a 4- or 5-bedroom, 4-bathroom serene, duplex dream home with charming treetop and street views -- a city "house" ensconced in a white glove, full-service Upper East Side coop with a low-cost garage. Situated between Park and Lexington, it is moments away from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Central Park, and some of the finest restaurants, shops, cultural institutions, and schools in the city.
Apartment 3E and 4E each have two large bedrooms, a gracious living room, a windowed kitchen, two full bathrooms, and a multitude of closets. 3E could be left mostly as it is, with a real staircase installed to join it to 4E, where a fifth bedroom could be added. The 4E kitchen could then become a lovely, windowed home office or den. Alternatively, open the 3E living room to the current master, and enjoy a grand, dramatic entertaining space and still have four commodious bedrooms, each with its own bathroom.
Currently, 3E has a gracious foyer with crown molding and a marble and granite floor. The gallery opens to an expansive, light-filled living room with recessed lighting and hardwood floors, and elegant dining "L" with a built-in banquette and bookcases, and sconces. The windowed kitchen has lovely white wooden cabinets, marble counters, and Miele appliances. The master bedroom easily accommodates a king-size bed, desk, and a seating area. There are two custom closets, including a walk-in. The marble master bathroom has a glass walk-in shower. The second bedroom is reached through a separate hallway, which has a wall of closets, including one which houses a Miele washer/dryer. The second bedroom can also accommodate a king size bed, and also has its own, glass tiled bathroom with a bathtub and shower.
4E has the same layout, but with the foyer completely open to the living room; a renovated, windowed kitchen with black granite counters, white wood cabinets, and new stainless steel appliances. The two bathrooms, both with bathtubs, were recently updated with new vanities.
Please see the suggested alternate floor plans for basic ideas, but use your imagination (and your architect's) to create your own unique, spacious home. Any and all alterations and renovations must be submitted, in advance, to the coop Board for approval. The formation of a duplex is possible in this building, however your specific plans must be submitted to the Board, which will approve or disapprove them in its discretion. Buyers may submit plans to the Board before submitting a Board Package. Utilities and cable are included in the monthly maintenance.The building has an elegant, understated lobby; a 24-hour doorman; a live-in super; a gym; and a garage with special rates for shareholders. Pets are welcome. There is a special assessment of $847.23 (total for 3E4E) for building improvements, which runs until April 2018. No flip tax! Showings are by appointment.
