There’s a nice new Upper East Side duplex on the market, asking $2.5 million. This turn-of-the-century pad is on the fourth and fifth floors of 165 East 60th Street, and it has been “cautiously renovated,” making sure to maintain all of its old school charm such as beamed ceilings and hardwood floors even though it sports modern updates.
The entrance is on the fifth floor, where you’ll find two bedrooms and two windowed bathrooms. An open windowed kitchen boasts high-end appliances, stone countertops, custom cabinets, a pantry and a washer and dryer. There’s also a balcony looking down over the lower level.
This lower level has giant 22-foot windows, making the most of its northern light and double-height ceilings, and granting garden and city views. The living area has a wood-burning fireplace surrounded by bookcases, while the dining room has seating for 12. There’s also supposedly a wet bar hidden in there somewhere.
165 East 60th Street is a prewar, turn-of-the-century co-op building known for being Manhattan’s second co-op conversion ever. The historic pet-friendly building has a live-in super and a part-time doorman. And best of all, it’s only three blocks from Central Park, immediately across the street from Bloomingdales, and close to all the shopping, dining and recreational destinations Lenox Hill has to offer.
