Bright and charming, this south facing, classic 8 is everything one desires of a rare pre-war condo, located between Madison Ave and Park Ave at 55 East 86th Street. Upon entry one is greeted by an elegant gallery featuring herringbone floors and a walk in closet, that doubles as a mud room equipped with cubbies and has plenty of room for strollers. Straight ahead the floors flow and lead you into an exquisite formal dining room and sitting area with wood burning fireplace, 9 ft beamed ceilings, and oversized windows. The windowed chefs kitchen is fully equipped with top of the line appliances and over looks the family room. The kitchen gives separation and privacy to the formal rooms while still allowing one to oversee family. The apartment has 4 bedrooms in total, two of which are corner rooms with 2 exposures, a maids quarter with en-suite bathroom, and all rooms have built in closets. The apartment has a washer and dryer in unit. 55 East 86th Street is a full service building with fulltime doorman, live-in super, gym, bike room and a beautifully landscaped roof deck with stunning views.
