Description

Beautifully upgraded in every way, this soulful, one-of-a-kind home is an easy-to-live beauty with a big personality and a big heart. The impressive volume of space it enjoys comes as a courtesy of its high ceilings, sunken and oversized living space, large closets (3 walk-in closets), and ample windows. Experience total serenity as you are greeted with a large entry hall with a walk-in coat closet.

Proceed into the well scaled dining area, featuring another walk-in closet space. Notice the windowed kitchen, custom-renovated, separate and sweet - top of the line appliances, ample counter and cabinet space. This is where you will let your culinary imagination run wild.

Separate to the side, there is 240 square feet of sunken living room space - it feels incredibly open, not only for it’s extra ceiling height, but for being twice the size of a standard NYC room. Everywhere you look is space, light, and comfort. With solid Oak floors underfoot, continue to the handsomely renovated, windowed bath with its own entry hall and a large linen closet. No detail has been overlooked in the creation of the modern classic residence; a winsome standout for all the best reasons! The C-Line at 161 East 88th St is coveted for its quiet exposures, practicality, and sweetness.

The fifth floor is prized for its Goldilocks position in this art deco jewel of a building not too low and not too high just right. The building benefits from a helpful staff (live-in superintendent, and a seasoned part-time doorman), in-building storage, bike and laundry rooms, a friendly, easy-going vibe. The Carnegie Hill location comes with bragging rights: the building is supremely situated on a picturesque tree-lined street, close to plethora of easy transportation options including the new 2nd avenue express subway.

Shopping, restaurants, cafs, and fitness destinations abound... For those with culinary aspirations, who wouldn’t be thrilled to have WholeFoods, Morton Williams, and Fairway all nearby? And with the Central Park and the Museum Mile four short blocks away this is the celebrated neighborhood for which so many yearn.

Come home to space and convenience come home to loveliness! Co-purchasing, pied--terres and subleases (2 out of 5 years) are allowed. The building has very low maintenance, however, a $78/month assessment is in place until the end of 2021.
