It might be difficult to imagine a having-it-all situation for $850K, especially on the Upper East Side, but this unusual apartment for well under a million at 225 East 86th Street definitely says “home” for someone who loves breezy country cottage style and wants more than the average boxed condo. And with living, dining and sleeping spaces divided over three levels, plus a rare glass-enclosed atrium, this heavenly home has plenty of room for guest visits as well as alone time. What’s more, despite its retail cornucopia, Yorkville is very much a residential neighborhood–one whose residents will surely rejoice with the advent of the Second Avenue Line, making the whole package an even sweeter deal.

An open floor plan makes good use of what is admittedly a somewhat narrow (though deep) space. The condo’s entry level features a renovated kitchen, a dining area open to the living room below and the apartment’s bathroom.

There are high-quality finishes throughout, including walnut flooring, maple kitchen cabinetry and limestone countertops in the kitchen and lovely rustic tiles, an imported vintage Italian vanity and Herbeau fixtures in the bath.

A half-flight down on the “first mezzanine” is a dreamy and spacious living room off which a terra cotta tiled atrium overlooks 87th Street.

Up a short flight from the entry level on the “second mezzanine” you’ll find a sun-filled bedroom loft with a wall of windows.

Buckingham East is a full service building with a rooftop garden, storage and laundry, in a fortunate location that’s equidistant from Carl Schurz and Central Parks, just over a block from express subways (with that Second Avenue Line just around the corner) and stellar shopping in every direction.
