Tucked into the garden floor of a classic Midtown East co-op at 240 East 55th Street, this four-bedroom home has more space than you’d usually find in a Manhattan apartment, with a lower level rec room, a den, and that covetable urban dream: a beautiful, landscaped private back yard. Asking $3,195,000, the spacious residence is freshly renovated with luxury details and high-tech amenities like wire-brushed wide plank oak floors, a Lutron lighting system, and a zoned A/C system.

The jewel of the home’s main living area is a sun-filled living room. A wall of glass overlooks–and opens onto–the back patio and yard.

The open living space includes a dining area and a fully-equipped contemporary kitchen. Highlights include Nobilia cabinetry, Caesarstone countertops, Miele appliances, and a 300-bottle wine refrigerator. Just past the kitchen are a huge walk-in pantry with a second refrigerator and even more storage.

The primary bedroom has a luxurious vented en-suite bath with Kohler fixtures, a marble-clad shower, and a Toto Washlet toilet. The second bedroom also has an en-suite marble bath.

In a private wing of the apartment, opposite the main living area, are two more bedrooms. Also in this space is a cozy den/office.

On the home’s lower level is another den/media room with its own full bathroom. Also down here are a private laundry room and another storage room.

The best part of this East Midtown refuge is a beautifully landscaped backyard that spans nearly 500 square feet. Perfect for summer entertaining, this lush outdoor oasis offers a lower-level patio with a BBQ area surrounded by a large turf-topped yard.

Flowering trees highlight a built-in pergola with a separate dining area and swing. This urban paradise is highlighted by LED-lit raised planters and its own electric and water line.

The post-war co-op has a part-time attended lobby, a live-in superintendent, and a common storage room. Subletting is permitted with board approval.
