“Pretty” might not be the most exciting adjective, but it’s exactly what comes to mind when looking at this petite Upper East Side penthouse. Located at 151 East 83rd Street, the one-bedroom co-op is full of lovely pre-war details both inside and out on the 850-square-foot wraparound terrace. It’s on the market for $1,750,000.

The living room is lined with lovely moldings, which highlight the marble wood-burning fireplace and floor-to-ceiling wall of built-ins.

Double doors in the living room open to the terrace. The brick walls and dividers are the perfect backdrop for the plethora of planters and vegetation. As the listing explains, “This terrace has not one but two separate areas big enough for dining. The current owners utilized that by making the smaller space their private outdoor dining area while placing an oversized 8-person dining table on the larger space for Covid-safe entertainment.”

The kitchen is small (there’s only a half fridge) but it’s nice and modern and has a window that opens to the terrace, which is perfect for serving outdoor meals.

Did we mention that there’s an entry foyer? Off the foyer is a marble-clad bathroom, a linen or coat closet, and the bedroom. The bedroom gets a ton of natural light and has two built-in armoire-style closets, as well as two additional deep closets.

The 11-story co-op building is between 3rd and Lexington Avenues, just a short walk to the 4, 5, 6 or Q trainst at 86th Street and a few blocks from Central Park. It was built in 1929 and converted to 82 co-op units in 1986.
