No stone was left unturned when this beautiful two bedroom, two bath home was renovated from top to bottom just a few years ago. Perched in the middle of the building on the eighth floor on elegant and serene East End Avenue, the apartment also enjoys great light. All of the special features of this unit would be too long to list, so I'll point out as many as I can: The kitchen features upgraded custom cabinetry "Plain and Fancy" brand - all real wood, soft close, touch open and under cabinet lighting with dimmer. Appliances are top-of-the-line: Bosch refrigerator (still under warranty), Miele D/W, custom Blue-Star french door gas range, and Miele hood. Counter-tops are quartz with glass-tile back-splash, and there is a built-in water purification tap. Both baths have Toto high-end model toilets with a built-in washlet in the master, high-end fixtures, some imported from Italy and both have 24'x24' European bath tiles on floor and surrounding bath walls. The new floors were laid throughout the apartment (even kitchen and closets),and are 5-inch wide plank aluminum oxide finish maple with a soundproof sub-floor, therefore exempt from 80% carpet rule. The doors are all custom built in Europe as are the closets customized with California Closet interiors (two being walk-in). There are new A/C units, a new electrical system, and a major bonus of this unit is a new vent-less LG front-load stacked WASHER/DRYER. The building is a well-managed, financially sound cooperative that offers an attractive low maintenance. There is a full-time doorman/concierge, resident manager, on-site garage, and storage units (as available). Pets are welcome as are pied-a-terres. It is near some of the best restaurants, shopping, parks, and some of the most prestigious private schools (Brearley, Chapin, Dalton, The Town School) and top public schools as well.Located across from Carl Schurz Park with it's beautiful Promenade along the East River, tranquil and serene, but at the same time convenient to transportation as it's close to the Q subway, public buses, the taxi line to downtown, the ramp to the FDR and the ferry to Midtown and Wall Street.
