Description

Awaken to a fabulous eastern sky with a wall of windows in your newly renovated alcove studio. This quiet and bright apartment will be a perfect pied-a-terre or a primary home in the heart of the Upper East Side, close to all transportation and the East Side Drive. As one enters this light filled apartment, one is greeted by beautiful gray flooring, two huge closets on the left.

There is attractive cove lighting in the living dining area which almost gives a feel of a charming prewar apartment. On the right of the entry is the pristine kitchen with white quartz counter-tops and white cabinetry plus all new appliances, including a dish-washer. Next to the alcove area is another large closet and the beautiful porcelain tiled bathroom with basket weave floor.

The views are wonderful. One can even see planes taking off from Laguardia Airport. Everything fresh and new for you to start a new life in NYC.

This terrific home is in 401 E 74 Owners Corp, a very financially strong and energy efficient coop with every amenity: 24-hour concierge, gym, community/ young people’s room, an attached garage, and resident manager.

The shareholders are delighted with bulk rate ConEdison bills, a gas boiler, a new high efficiency Co-Generator (CO-GEN), and the use of LED fixtures throughout, which greatly reduce the environmental footprint while substantially reducing both the owners and building heating and electricity costs. The hallways, elevators, lobby, gym, community/young people’s room, roof deck, and laundry room have been recently renovated with no assessments to any shareholder. Washer-dryers are not allowed in individual units.

The Amherst has low maintenance bills. Cable companies include Verizon FIOS, Spectrum, and RCN. This beautiful apartment is situated in a friendly neighborhood that has many of the most important amenities that are sought-after by busy Manhattanites.

This pied-a-terre and pet friendly coop is very close to the Q train and an easy walk to Central Park, as well as the many other parks in the neighborhood, not to mention the promenade next to the East River
