If you've been looking at the market for a while, you might notice that this unit is really a unique combination of key factors. The size of this unit, in this move-in ready condition, at this price-point, with this maintenance, a washer/dryer, and a huge private outdoor terrace is extremely rare... anywhere in the city. You also probably realize that inventory is low on Roosevelt Island right now, especially for move-in ready units.
As you enter on the top floor, you will immediately appreciate how warm and inviting this unit is. To the right of the entryway, you pass the 1st full spa-like guest bathroom. Just beyond the foyer, you enter the huge open kitchen featuring Viking appliances, custom cabinetry, marble countertops and significant cabinet storage space. The large a breakfast bar, with seating for at least 4 people, is open to a bonus space for dinning, work or lounging. Down the hallway, the main living area accommodates living and dining with views over the courtyard to Manhattan skyline.
You make your way downstairs to the bedrooms. To your left at the base of the stairs, you pass an enormous walk-in hallway closet, and find the 2nd and 3rd full-sized bedrooms with Manhattan skyline views. The 2nd full bathroom also features Washer/Dryer units. The large peaceful primary bedroom suite has space for a queen or king bed, dresser, armoire, seating and more, and includes a walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom. Off the primary bedroom, the amazing 230 sq ft terrace (one of the largest possible on Roosevelt Island) has ample room for outdoor living room seating and a dining table.
Island House residents equally enjoy all the community has offered for decades, and the new upgrades and renovations. Island House is one of the four first residential buildings on Roosevelt Island and one of the only three co-ops. Today the various amenities include a designer fitness center, bike storage, renovated courtyard featuring a dog run, play equipment, and outdoor designer workout equipment, a renovated lobby and large common inspiration area with high ceilings. Residents also have access to the 20-meter indoor pool in the adjacent neighboring building Westview. Island House is well managed with on-site staff. There is a full-time 24-hour doorman and package room for deliveries. This is the only pet/dog-friendly co-op on the island and allows up to 80% financing.
Roosevelt Island could be perhaps one of the most livable solutions in New York City. Living here means living on the water every day with views and space (indoor and outdoor!) Life here offers conveniences of ample outdoor space and neighborhood lifestyle that people are looking for. It is possible to relax and be comfortable at home, overlooking the greatest city in the world. For many reasons Roosevelt Islanders love the speak-easy reputation of Roosevelt Island and its oasis of calm and community living minutes away from the city.
Only minutes away from Midtown, it is an attractive alternative 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.
More people are discovering how Roosevelt Island is commutable by the MTA 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, people are able to self-park in the parking garage on the island and have a reserved spot.
The vibrant community also includes the newly developed Cornell University Tech campus with landscaped park space, cafes, and a hotel, dining at "Anything At All" and rooftop bar/club at "The Panorama Room." 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 Read, Starbucks and a number of local restaurants featuring at least 7 cuisines.
The 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.
