Description

ESTATE MUST SELL. WILL PAY FIRST YEAR OF MAINTENANCE PLUS $30K FOR NEW WINDOWS FOR TOTAL CREDIT OF $82,176. Enjoy dazzling southeast city views from this high floor corner unit at The Excelsior.

With nearly 1200 sq ft, this oversized residence with one-and-a-half bathrooms has space to spare and can easily accommodate a second bedroom. The entertaining space features large picture windows on two sides, flooding the residence with light and creating a 37’ expanse that opens to an outdoor terrace. A large, windowed, eat-in kitchen holds a full size table.

The home’s feng shui flows from south and east, and is in good estate condition throughout. A welcoming entry foyer, generous closets and original wood floors complete the picture. A washer/dryer may be installed with board approval.

Upon closing, the seller will credit the buyer $30,000 to cover the cost of new windows plus one year of maintenance payments. Located at the northeast corner of Second Avenue and East 57th Street, the amenity-rich Excelsior offers exceptional service and security to shareholders. An attentive staff includes hotel-like concierge, round the clock doormen and Resident Manager. Unique features comprise a circular driveway, 20,000 sq ft health club and spa, sun deck, saltwater swimming pool, garage, laundry/dry cleaning service and white marbled lobby with double-height ceiling.

Nearby restaurant and retail options are plentiful and include Trader Joe’s and WholeFoods. The board permits dogs under 15 lbs, 50% financing, pied-à-terre and corporate purchases, as well as guarantors, subletting, co-purchasing, and parents buying for children. This is a land lease building, and the unit is priced accordingly.
