Property Description

1st showing September 11th, 11:30am - 1:00pm

Step into one of the finest three-bedroom combination units you can find!

A classic foyer with a coat closet opens into a sun-lit common space. The open concept maximizes square footage and creates volume.

The renovated kitchen is fully equipped with a Sub-Zero refrigerator, a Wolf oven/range, a Bosch dishwasher, a 24-bottle wine fridge, and a Wolf microwave. Marble and custom cabinetry elevate the open-concept kitchen into a luxurious space.

Access the private wrapping balcony from the dining area with north, east, south, and west views. The sunset light is glorious.

The living room area is pre-wired for surround sound in a seamless fashion. Soundproofing insulation was added between neighboring apartments and bedrooms, along with all new electric, plumbing, Heat, and AC units. A custom in-unit laundry closet has a full-size Whirlpool washer/dryer set.

Along the central hall, two southern-facing mirrored bedrooms, large enough for full-size beds, each have a bathroom across the hall. At the end of the hall, a massive southern-facing primary bedroom has 2 walk-in closets, enough space for a sitting area, and radiant floor heating in the en-suite bathroom.

There is no expense left out of this ideal combination renovation, from the materials, the top-end brands, the craftsmanship, the considered details, and the layout. Custom cabinetry, hardwood floors, California Closets, crown molding, and custom Silhouette blinds are all elegant, sophisticated, and noticeable details throughout the home.

301 East 87th Street, The Corniche, is a full-service co-op with a 24-hour doorman and live-in superintendent. The building enjoys a newly renovated and elegant lobby, landscaped roof deck, storage, bike room, central laundry, gym, and playroom. Pet friendly.

The location is convenient to grocery stores such as Whole Foods and Fairway and dozens of fantastic restaurants like Caf D'Alsace and Elio's. Transportation is key with the new Q station one block away and the 4/5/6 station at 86th & Lex.

Three Beds in Upper East Side


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.
