Description

This richly-appointed, impeccably-crafted & renovated Maisonette Duplex in an upscale Upper East Side prewar cooperative is the epitome of luxury living. Your own private street entrance invites you into a grand and elegant townhouse-style home, complemented by the amenities of a premium full-service prewar building. The main level entry foyer proceeds into sophisticated living/entertaining space graced by such stunning features as gleaming hardwood floors, hand-carved woodwork & finishes, airy wood-clad ceilings designed by former Columbia University campus architect & Architectural History professor Dean Telfer, tasteful built-ins, and a beautiful Tiffany style tile gas fireplace to gather around.

Lounge or host guests in the formal living room, which seamlessly spills into the spacious light-bathed dining room across the way. Preparing gourmet meals is exceptional in the large chef's kitchen appointed with slab marble walls & countertops, generous cabinetry, double sinks, a suite of Viking stainless steel appliances including a stove with vented hood, double oven & heated drawer, plus a wine cooler & custom dish rack. Also featured is a huge walk-in pantry, lovely leaded glass window & convenient service entrance.

A powder room, full laundry room (easily convertible into a 4th bedroom/staff room) & abundant closet storage complete the comfort. In the central gallery, an exquisite wood staircase of superior quality, set on sturdy steel beams, ascends to the divine sleeping quarters. Here awaits a sunny Primary bedroom retreat with an enormous walk-in closet, and en-suite spa bath with a soaking tub, multi-head shower & separate water closet.

A stunning home office/second bedroom with custom oak cabinetry & dual closets, 3rd bedroom with a built-in queen bed & 12' walk-in cedar closet, and second full bath occupy the upper story as well. Built in 1929, 520 East 86th Street offers residents a full-time doorman, onsite gym, private outdoor garden where one can relax or reserve for parties & events, a bike room, and pet-friendly policy. A storage bin is included with the sale.

As alluring is the prized location half a block from Carl Schurz Park, minutes from excellent shopping, dining, and public transportation. Available by appointment.
