530 East 86th Street, 9C, Manhattan, NY 10028
Elegant, sprawling, 10-into-9 room residence in a distinguished Vincent Astor building, a full service, prewar cooperative located at 530 E 86th Street, off of East End Avenue. With original double-hung windows, this apartment has the feel of a house, with excellent light throughout, and exposures in all four directions.
Enter through a private elevator landing, which opens into a gracious foyer. The grand, corner living room boasts a wood burning fireplace and built-in bookcases, and is bordered with large windows that admit abundant sunlight. Large French doors open into the adjacent formal dining room, which thoughtfully connects to the fully renovated chef’s kitchen. A charming library flanks the living room on the other side, with custom millwork and built-in bookshelves.
Originally housing two staff rooms, the large, windowed eat-in kitchen was fully renovated and boasts a large center island, dining table and banquette, and also includes a desk area with built-in file drawers. Top of the line appliances include a Viking gas range with electric oven, SubZero refrigerator, and Miele dishwasher. A wet bar and butler’s pantry make this kitchen ideal for entertaining purposes, and plentiful storage throughout make it sensible for everyday use. A full-sized Miele washer and vented dryer in the room off the kitchen create a practical laundry room with a generous utility closet. The hallway connecting the kitchen to the foyer contains a double coat closet as well as a “mud room”, with coat hooks, bench and a shelf for hats.
Creating optimum privacy, a long, gracious gallery leads to the three bedroom suites, all generously proportioned. At the end of the hallway, the master suite encompasses the southeast corner of the residence, and boasts three generous closets, including a large walk-in closet, and a large ensuite bathroom with abundant storage space. Connected to the master suite sits a delightful solarium wrapped in original casement windows, perfect for a serene sitting room or home office.
