This Classic Co-op Next to Carl Schurz Park Asks $2.795 Million

January 29, 2016

This stretch of East 86th Street, in the Yorkville area of the Upper East Side, is an attractive, quiet block that ends at Carl Schurz Park—home to Gracie Mansion and Mayor de Blasio. Along the way is this six-story, red brick co-op building with an elegant entrance at 519 East 86th Street. And the four-bedroom unit currently for sale there, asking $2.795 million, is just as lovely as the block outside. It’s a classic prewar co-op with one of those drool-worthy, complex floor plans: a large foyer, four bedrooms, dedicated living and dining rooms, a mud room, an office, the works.

You enter into the expansive, arched foyer (always one of the best features of these prewar co-op apartments!) and then down into the sunken living room and dining room. In many of these co-ops, it’s typical to have separate, private rooms. Here, the arched entryways are wide as can be, opening each room of the apartment up to the other. It gives the entire apartment a great flow, and a bright, spacious feel, rather than a closed-in, stuffy one.

Built-in bookshelves and detailing along the hardwood floors are other nice touches.

The listing says this apartment was recently renovated, and we expect the kitchen got some upgrades. It’s decked out with fancy appliances and a cozy L-shaped leather banquette for extra seating. Right across from the kitchen are sliding French doors, which open into a room previously used as a nursery. It could also become a walk-in closet or an office space.

The master bedroom is located at one side of the apartment, opposite from the three other bedrooms. It’s got two closets, one large and one small. The large second bedroom has its own bathroom and dressing area, and a newly renovated bathroom connects the third and fourth bedrooms. The current owners are using that fourth bedroom as a library/den.

Just take a look at that floor plan! There’s something incredible about the thought put into the flow of these gracious, prewar co-ops.
