This unicorn of an apartment is rarely available! The space and value of this light-filled 2-bedroom apartment is difficult to find elsewhere in the city. The idyllic views of the Manhattan skyline, East River and Roosevelt Island community courtyard plaza are visible from every room in the apartment (through the new insulated sliding windows.) The apartment offers ample space to live and work (as so many of us are apt to do from home these days.) The six deep closets throughout the apartment provide unparalleled storage space. The galley pass-through kitchen is ready to be updated. However, the current design features a passthrough window offering convenience and privacy with significant cabinet storage space. The maintenance includes the use of amenities, taxes and utilities (except electricity and cable.) Enjoy all the conveniences of city living, with a suburban setting, overlooking the greatest city in the world. To schedule a viewing please contact me directly to tour this unit by appointment: virtually or physically.
This unit is subject to this coops unique affordability standards and due to related affordable pricing structures, the closing must occur after June 25, 2021. To learn more about the income requirement details in this building please contact me directly.
Island House residents equally enjoy all the community has offered for decades, and the new upgrades and renovations. Island House was of the four first residential buildings on Roosevelt Island. Today the various amenities include a designer fitness center (by appointment), bike storage, courtyard lounge, renovated lobby and large common inspiration area with high ceilings. Island House is well managed with on-site staff. There is a full-time doorman and package room for deliveries. This is the only pet/dog-friendly co-op on the island, and welcomes pied-a-terre ownership, co-purchasing, and up to 80% financing.
Roosevelt Islanders love the speak-easy reputation of Roosevelt Island and its oasis of calm and community living minutes away from the city. It is commutable by the Roosevelt Island Tram, the F train, the Astoria Ferry line, the M86 bus line, land bridge from Astoria, and CitiBike, making it easy to get all over Manhattan, Long Island City, and Astoria in about 20 minutes. Also, perhaps more important now than ever, residents and visitors are able to self-park in the parking garage on the island and reserved spots are available.
Roosevelt Island offers a livable solution to city living because of the abundance of community amenities and outdoor space, such as: parks, green space, gardens and community gardens, running and biking paths, swimming pools, baseball and soccer fields, basketball and tennis courts, and playgrounds to name a few. Roosevelt Island is committed to green living, and in addition to weekly composting drop-off, one is able to even forage some plants and herbs on the island, and there is a membership run community garden. Other parks include: Southpoint Park and Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms State Park in the south and Lighthouse Park at the north end of the island. Some parks and green spaces include access to complimentary BBQ grills. The vibrant community also includes the newly developed Cornell Tech campus with landscaped park space, cafes, and (coming soon) a hotel and rooftop dining. Further, residents have access to the New York City public library, schools, post office, the new Foodtown grocery store, two well-stocked bodegas, weekly Farmers Market, Duane Reade, Starbucks and a number of local restaurants featuring at least 5 cuisines.
