Description

Apartment 5 at 2 East 88th Street is extraordinary in every sense of the word. This elegant pre-war residence has been renovated and redesigned to perfection, and is located in an established Upper East Side co-op opposite to the world-renowned Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum on Fifth Avenue. The approximately 3,500-SF home boasts 10.5’ ceilings and oversized windows that offer spectacular direct views of the iconic museum along its northern expanse, in addition to gorgeous tree-level exposures west over Central Park and the reservoir. From the moment you step through the vestibule from the private elevator landing, you are immediately dazzled by the home’s pristine, top-to-bottom makeover.

High-end renovations include two brand-new, marble full bathrooms with heated floors, powder room, new Herringbone oak wood flooring, ceilings, and electrical wiring throughout, an innovative central air and humidifier system with three separate compressors, a Crestron smart home with electric shades, music and lighting control. Grand living spaces consist of an expansive living room with soffit ceilings, recessed lighting, and a marble wood-burning fireplace, a magnificent formal dining room that can seat 24 for gatherings, as well as a cerused oak paneled library with a second wood-burning fireplace. The stunning kitchen features two large Sub-Zero refrigerators, a pair of Miele dishwashers, two Wolf ovens, a grill and 6-burner stove, in addition to a wine refrigerator and separate laundry area with full-sized washer and dryer. The master suite is the most sophisticated and luxurious in all of New York City.

A gracious corner bedroom with a comfortable seating area has direct views up Fifth Avenue of the Guggenheim through a large north-facing window, and picture-perfect exposures of the Central Park trees and reservoir across the Avenue from an equally impressive west-facing window. Through the marble master bath with tub and separate stall shower, you’ll find the walk-in dressing room of your dreams, outfitted with floor-to-ceiling, tailor-made built-ins, desk area, and yet another window view of the Guggenheim. An additional sizable bedroom features a private ensuite full bathroom and many built-ins. 2 East 88th Street, in the heart of the Carnegie Hill neighborhood, is one of the most striking pre-war co-ops on Museum Mile, directly across from the Guggenheim with views of Central Park.

The 14-story building designed by Pennington & Lewis was built in 1930 and consists of just 13 apartments. Amenities include a full-time doorman and live-in super. Pets are allowed with board approval.
