Come home to one of the most lovely, tree-lined blocks on the Upper East Side. At 140 East 81st Street your doorman welcomes you in as you pass through the serene and beautifully appointed lobby. The elevator whisks you up to the 2nd floor landing and home to 2E. Exhale the stresses of city life and the work day as you enter into your spacious 2-bedroom, 1.5 bathroom co-op oasis. Your first impression is the sense of real space: space for living, entertaining, working, enjoying the cross breezes from your south and north facing windows and simply living life comfortably. The entry foyer is not your usual square of floor space. In addition to a coat closet, it features custom built-in bookcases and cabinetry and gives guests a proper welcome. The living and dining areas are expansive and allow you to play with the layout to suit your needs. The very large and windowed kitchen can easily accommodate seating now but could be even more spacious if the wall was opened to flow directly into the main living and dining areas. A powder room is also in the kitchen and could be expanded into a 2nd full bathroom if so desired.
Featured on the Northern exposure of 2E are the 2 elegant and roomy bedrooms with views of the treetops on East 81st St. A Jack and Jill full bath separates the 2 bedrooms and the master bedroom boasts 2 custom his and hers closets, as well as space big enough for a home office just outside the master bedroom door.
In short, 2E is the very definition of the word "home".
140 East 81st Street is an impeccably cared for and maintained co-op with a full-time doorman and a live-in super. In fact, the building is so well-managed that monthly maintenance costs were actually lowered recently. When do you hear that? The building features a brand new gym with Peloton bike, a pretty shared courtyard, storage and bike space and large laundry room (though washer/dryers are allowed in units with board approval). Near absolutely everything this marvelous part of the Upper East Side has to offer: from restaurants, museums and boutiques to parks and subway lines. This co-op allows: pied a terres, up to 75% financing, cats are OK but only 1 dog per apartment. No co-purchasing or parents buying for offspring. There is no flip tax. Zoned for PS6.
