Description

Located at 225 East 86th Street, an intimate condominium right in the heart of the Upper East Side, this 1 BR/1 BA south-facing home is both sophisticated and spacious. The versatile living/dining room, best enjoyed with friends and family, features a solarium delivering sweeping city views and day long natural light.

The open planned kitchen, the perfect place to start the day, features stainless steel appliances (dishwasher), granite countertops, and custom cabinetry.

The king-sized bedroom offers room enough for additional furniture and two deep closets. This home offers hardwood floors, high ceilings, and ample storage options punctuated throughout.

225 East 86th Street is a full-service building equipped with a full-time doorman, live-in superintendent, furnished roof top garden, centralized laundry facility, and private storage. Converted to condominium in 1986, with only 60 residences, the building is pet friendly, wired for FIOS, a short stroll to the express 4, 5 and local 6 trains, and the new Second Avenue subway.

Proximate to a bevy of beloved neighborhood restaurants, bars, cafes, Wholefoods, Fairway, Equinox (all within one block), and Central Park, this is UES living at its finest!
