A charming duplex at 64 East 86th Street is available for a recently discounted $2.85 million. This 2,100-square-foot pad boasts all the offerings of a chic suburban home all within arms’ reach of Central Park, the Met and the Guggenheim. And to top it all off, that gorgeous staircase…
Enter the duplex to find nine-foot ceilings and a windowed kitchen with a large pantry (also windowed) and a separate service entrance. The bright living room features beamed ceilings and large north-facing windows with city views. Meanwhile, the adjacent dining room benefits from southern light and a stunning winding staircase with a custom-designed wrought iron banister.
Upstairs, the second floor has a large landing surrounded by bookcases. The generous master suite has another wall of closets, two additional closets, and a large linen closet off the en suite bath. Suffice it to say, storage abounds in this apartment, and we New Yorkers know how valuable that is.
A second bedroom (currently set up as a sitting room) connects to the master, while a third bedroom/den (also bursting with closets) has laundry facilities and an additional bathroom.
64 East 86th Street is a full-service prewar co-op in the prestigious Carnegie Hill neighborhood. Residents are routinely faced with the difficult dilemma of deciding whether to experience the culture of Museum Mile, the recreation of Central Park, or enjoying any of the neighborhood shops and restaurants.
