Property Description

Offering 1,050 square feet of living space, this spacious one bedroom, one and a half bathroom residence plus a den with an in-unit washer/dryer is situated in a full-service cooperative in one of the most convenient sections of the Upper East Side.

Apartment 5F offers a generous layout that boasts a gracious entry foyer that opens to the oversized 31 foot long combination living and dining room. This expansive gathering space culminates in wall-to-wall windows, complete with custom built-in cabinetry, looking north over 61st Street. Hardwood parquet floors, base and crown molding grace the apartment throughout. A windowed flex space, currently configured as a den, sits adjacent to the living room. This additional space is perfectly suited to become a second bedroom or a formal dining room.

The kitchen has been stylishly and intuitively designed with custom cabinetry that includes soft close drawers, doors, and undermount and interior lighting, granite countertops, and stainless steel subway tile backsplash. Appliances include a SubZero refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, gas range and oven, and microwave. The deep undermount sink has an incorporated garbage disposal. Apartment 5F also includes an in-unit efficient Miele stacking washer/dryer, located in a closet off of the foyer.

The carpeted primary suite is separated from the rest of the home, ensuring privacy. The expansive 15 foot long primary suite includes a home office with custom cabinetry, built-in desk, drawers, utility closet, shelving, and undermount lighting for those late work from home nights. A primary bathroom outfitted with a frameless glass shower featuring a dual rain and handheld shower head system, and an ample amount of closet and storage space complete the primary suite.

150 East 61st Street is a full service cooperative, with a 24 hour doorman, live-in resident manager, newly renovated lobby, fitness center, bike room, private storage, laundry room, and an on-site parking garage. You could not ask for a more convenient location, just a short distance away from both the 2nd Avenue and Lexington Avenue subway stations. Central Park and the best restaurants and shops in Manhattan are just three blocks away.

Building permits pied-a-terre, co-purchasing, gifting, guarantors, LLC, Trust, and Corporate purchases with Board approval.

Upper East Side | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Exuding a cosmopolitan, refined air that is reminiscent of Paris or other European cities, the Upper East Side (the UES, to local cognoscenti) has a reputation as being a bastion of wealth and privilege. Even though it was built by American “royalty” families like the Vanderbilts, Roosevelts, Kennedys, Carnegies and Rockefellers, whose elaborate mansions once anchored Fifth Avenue, there are affordable housing options throughout the neighborhood. The further east you move, away from Central Park and the more commercial avenues, the more likely you are to find quiet, tree-lined streets with historic townhouses and brownstones. Keep your eye out for reasonably priced apartments in pre-war low-rise and even a few high-rise buildings.

With abundant, beautifully landscaped green spaces, including the oasis of Central Park acting like a backyard, the area is quiet and lushly green. You can relax and unwind in John Jay Park, Carl Schurz Park or take a stroll along the East River Promenade. The whole neighborhood seems isolated from the workaday chaos of the city at large. Add to that the history of the neighborhood and the abundance of cultural institutions, and you have a uniquely welcoming neighborhood.

Known for its abundance of high-end retail shopping, especially on Madison Avenue, the Upper East Side is host to the Barneys New York flagship department store. Here you can find upscale goods, fashion and home decor items. You will also find the edgy runway-inspired Alexander McQueen collections. If you are dying to treat your feet to red-soled opulence, be sure to visit the Christian Louboutin boutique. These are only a small sampling of this high-end shopper’s paradise that features everything from designer boutiques that offer the ultimate in haute couture to resale shops where you can find last season’s best on sale at hefty discounts .

There are many unique dining experiences, from fine dining to the casual bite-on-the-go, awaiting you in the UES. Sushi is going through a renaissance in the city, and the best omakase-style sushi can be found at Sasabune on E 73rd Street. Omakase sushi means that you leave the choice of ingredients, preparation method and presentation to the chef. Elegant French cuisine can be experienced at JoJo, E 64th Street, housed in gorgeous townhouse. Just for fun, visit the Lexington Candy Shop on Lexington Avenue, to get a taste of an old-fashioned soda fountain.
