40 East End Avenue, Apt 14-A

By Linecity, December 6, 2021

If you’re looking for a home with an outstanding view, this one is tough to beat.  The space is literally perched above the East River while providing open views to the east and south.  Even better, the views are beautifully framed by a full wall of stunning French casement windows.  

But it’s the open dining room (dining area to some) that merits our full attention in this latest edition of the One Room series.  The dining room is lodged in the corner of this loft-like living space with not just one but two walls of windows.  The East River feels like it’s an extension to the home; whether it’s family or friends, be prepared to serve multi-course meals – no one will ever want to leave.

Apartment 14-A at 40 East End Avenue is a newly built three-bedroom condo that spans 2,229 square feet of airy, open space. Four rooms, including the primary bedroom, claim direct views of the East River.  As much as we love the view, we are equally impressed with the details of the residence and the inspiring palette of materials. 

Located on the northwest corner of East End Avenue and 81st Street, the property sits at the gateway of East End Avenue, a unique block that feels more like a private enclave.  Residents take full advantage of the waterfront esplanade, the green space and playing fields that hug the river.  There is no better place to engage with your neighbors.  

The charcoal toned brick building artfully rises 20 floors and contains just 29 apartments. It was developed by Lightstone and designed in collaboration by the acclaimed architectural firms of Deborah Berke Partners and Gerner Kronick & Valcarcel Architects.  Berke herself has lived in the neighborhood for 25 years.

The corner dining room is the pivot from which the rest of the living space revolves.    The kitchen is on one side while the living room on the other.  The casement windows run along the east side of the apartment forming a union between the dining space and the open kitchen.  At the same time, the dining and living areas share a spectacular coved ceiling which unites these two rooms.  Ten foot ceilings, crown moldings, white oak herringbone floors and designer lighting further enhances the space.   

40 East End Avenue offers a full-time concierge with an array of high-end amenities.  These include a double-height parlor lounge, gourmet catering kitchen, resident library, game room, fitness center, storage space and laundry room.  There are a limited number of deeded parking spaces available.

The current ask for Apartment 14-A is $5,995,990. This represents a per square foot price of $2,690. Private storage is included in the pricing.  Corcoran is the exclusive marketing agent for the property.  To learn more, please visit Linecity.
