Property Description

Exceptional natural light beams from this sprawling 3-4 bedroom home with outdoor space overlooking the East River, Carl Schurz Park and Gracie Mansion. Apartment 14D has a gracious floorplan that is unique to 180 East End Avenue having an extra bedroom, office area and bath annexed from an adjoining line creating an expansive and flexible plan. The grand residence is currently configured with 3 large bedrooms and 4.5 baths. A fabulous additional primary bedroom with ensuite bath can be created resulting in a four-bedroom home. The apartment has been recently painted and with some minor upgrades of the bathrooms, it can be enjoyed in its current configuration.

Enter 14D and you will immediately find a home that is ideally suited for entertaining with an entrance gallery that includes a powder room, coat closet and stylish wet bar. This leads to the double-wide East-facing living room complete with terrace from which to enjoy the incredible river views. Adjacent to this same East-facing view over Gracie Mansion is the primary bedroom with an ensuite bath and walk-in closet. Across from the living room to provide a beautiful east/west expanse is the bright west-facing dining room which can easily seat twelve. Through a classic swing door is the South-facing windowed kitchen which has a generous sized eating area, two sinks, stainless-steel appliances, a walk-in closet/pantry, significant cabinet space and an extra full bath.

Off the main gallery, privately tucked away in their own vestibule, are two additional very well-proportioned bedrooms with large west-facing picture windows. They share a center hall bathroom. Pictures are virtually staged.

For ease, there is also a laundry room adjacent to the apartment and an in-unit washer/dryer is permissible. There are only four apartments per floor and although each floor has its own private laundry area, residents can also use the additional laundry room in the basement.

The highly coveted Gracie Towers is ideally located on the corner of East End Avenue and 88th street providing easy access to the East River Promenade. This is a well-designed building with a beautiful lobby and a new architecturally landscaped garden. It is fully serviced with a 24-hour doorman, concierge, and live-in resident manager.

Parking Garage fees are $295 per month, bike room available at no cost, one assigned storage bin per unit without fees. There is a 2% Flip Tax paid by the Seller and 50% financing is allowed. Residents enjoy a multitude of building amenities such as the heated rooftop pool, fitness center, attended garage, courtyard, library-lounge with pool table, and playroom. Pets are permitted.

Gracie Towers is nearby several grocery stores such as Heavenly Market, CTown Supermarket, Morton Williams and D'Agostino. There are endless options to grab coffee or a bite to eat; for example, there is Arturo, Felice 83, Penrose, Eat Pretty, Starbucks, AOC, Van Leeuwen, Levain and Maman. Local conveniences are also plentiful in this vibrant neighborhood.

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.
