This impossibly spacious three-bedroom duplex maisonette in a gracious Upper East Side pre-war co-op at 520 East 86th Street is really a “best of both worlds” situation. For the price of $4,755 million, you get the privacy and space of townhouse living on two floors, three bedrooms and your own private entrance with its own address. You also get the convenience of a full-time doorman and a chance to live in a covetable Manhattan co-op.
A year-long top-to-toe renovation of the home led by architect Dean Telfer resulted in a stunning 21st century residence that showcases details like exquisite handcrafted coffered wood ceilings, railings, cabinetry, mouldings, and Venetian plaster walls.
On the first floor are spacious living and dining rooms and a pale mint-hued gourmet kitchen with miles of marble on worktops and backsplash, generous prep areas, top of the line appliances and a walk-in pantry. Also on this floor are a full bath and a staff/utility room with a washer/dryer.
Ascend a dramatic wood staircase and you’ll find an oversized master bedroom with a totally marble-clad bath. A huge walk-in closet offers custom built-ins.
Therea are two more bedrooms upstairs, one of which is being used as a cozy home office and den. Also ready for modern life are the apartment’s mechanical systems, like central air conditioning on the first floor.
