Ensconced in a boutique, mid-century, white glove coop on a beautiful, tree-lined street between Park and Lexington Avenue, Apartment 4E offers an ideal, split 2-bedroom, 2-bath layout with space, light, generous proportions, and a charming, sunny view of treetops and historic townhouses across quiet 81st Street. The grand living room and separate dining alcove of this home encourage both entertaining and gracious city living. The windowed kitchen was renovated with Ceasarstone counters, which include a breakfast bar; stainless steel appliances; and lovely white wood cabinetry. The two bedrooms -- each of which is large enough to be the master bedroom -- and their respective, updated bathrooms, are separated from the living space by hallways, for maximum privacy. Restored, gleaming hardwood floors; through-the-wall air conditioners; and eight ample closets grace the apartment. A washer and dryer are permitted with board approval.
120 East 81st Street is a well-managed, financially sound coop that has remarkably low maintenance, which includes electricity and basic cable. There is a resident manager and an attentive staff; a laundry room; a well-equipped gym; bike and common storage; and an in-house garage, which offers special, low rates for shareholders. The coop permits 50% financing and pets, and has no flip tax. Located on a premier Upper East Side block, the building is minutes away from Central Park, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, PS 6, a brand new community center, and some of the best shopping and dining in Manhattan.
Showings are by appointment.
