Perched on a high floor, drenched in sunlight with open city views, this sophisticated and elegant 8-room apartment in a distinguished and sought after prewar cooperative is a must see. After undergoing a meticulous architecturally designed almost year-long renovation, which included the installation of all new windows, heating and cooling systems and the highest quality fixtures and flooring throughout, this immaculate high-floor, sun-flooded home is move-in ready.
Enter from a semi-private elevator entry onto a gracious gallery, which flows into the contiguous living room, dining room, and exquisite cozy library. All public rooms are replete with artfully designed built-ins and flanked by distinctive imported steel casement windows that showcase open sunlit southern skyline views all day long and hundreds of twinkling city lights at night.
The windowed kitchen is a chef’s dream, featuring marble and Glassos countertops and backsplash, a large and inviting island counter/breakfast bar and top-of-the-line appliances including Sub-Zero, Wolf and Bosch, additional under counter refrigerator drawers and microwave. Adjacent to the kitchen is a sleek office with a built-in walnut desk and storage, as well as a stylish powder room and butler’s pantry with a wine refrigerator and laundry.
The private bedroom wing includes three bedrooms and two full baths. The charming master bedroom has an abundance of built-in storage space and an en-suite master bath outfitted with Waterworks hardware and floors. The two additional bedrooms, each with custom built-ins, retractable shades, and fitted closets share a newly renovated bath with cheerful Moroccan floor tile.
530 East 86th Street is a full-service pre-war cooperative with a live-in super just steps from Carl Schurz Park and some of the city’s most sought after schools. Easy access to the Second Avenue Subway and the newly commenced ferry service to midtown and beyond make this neighborhood gem even more attractive. Building amenities include a lovely resident-only private garden, fitness room, and bike storage. A large storage room transfers with the apartment. Pets are welcome. Rarely does one see an apartment renovated to this standard of excellence. Truly a must see!
