This spacious 2 bed room, 2 bath apartment with large L-shaped flex space accommodates separate living, dining and den areas, or can be easily converted into a 3 bedroom with a generous living-dining room. This meticulously maintained home in a full-service building is located between Park and Madison Avenues, just 1 block from Central Park.
As soon as you pass through the entrance foyer, you are struck by the wall of south facing windows looking onto a beautiful cityscape which includes the historic Moorish-style Park Avenue Synagogue. Off the foyer there's a large walk-in closet with a washer/dryer and a second walk-in closet plus 7 additional closets, providing abundant storage.
The sleek and modern kitchen includes all new stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops and separate dry bar. The two large bedrooms face north onto an interior courtyard which affords good sunlight during the day and quite rest at night. The on-suite master bathroom is walled in floor-to-ceiling marble with great lighting, wall mirrors, double sinks, an oversized, enclosed shower stall, independent heating, and built in vanity. The second bath has a pedestal sink, full-sized tub/shower combination, a wall mirror, and great lighting as well. Refinished hardwood floors, 9' ceilings, and central air-conditioning throughout.
Whether you enjoy outdoor entertaining, gardening (yes, theres an exterior faucet), sipping coffee, or having a quiet drink, this outdoor space can be your private oasis. Here, set back above a leafy block of tranquil East 87th Street in prime Carnegie Hill, a rare opportunity awaits.
