Our first Upper East Side deal is set in an 1898 limestone building less than a block from Central Park. Not a bad start! This 1-bedroom boasts stunning prewar details mixed with modern upgrades. For example, the oversized, arched windows in the living room are timeless. But you’ll find a dishwasher in the newly renovated kitchen, and a washer/dryer in the bathroom too.
For storage galore, look no further than this Lenox Hill 1-bedroom. There’s a closet in the foyer, another outside the bathroom, and a big double closet in the bedroom. It’s also got storage of a different variety: a built-in wine fridge in the gorgeous kitchen. This Upper East Side deal is set in an elevator building with a rooftop deck and common laundry.
What this studio lacks in interior space, it makes up for with a massive private backyard. Step out of your living room into 500 square feet of sunny paradise! Inside, this Upper East Side deal boasts beamed ceilings and immaculate hardwoods. Plus, the kitchen is surprisingly stacked, with granite counters and high-end appliances, including a dishwasher.
Two bedrooms for $550K? This Yorkville gem might just be the best bargain of our Upper East Side deals. The primary bedroom has corner windows for maximum light throughout the day. And the smaller one would make a perfect den or home office. There’s a spacious living room and a very well-appointed kitchen, too. In addition, the building is just a block from the waterfront green space of Carl Schurz Park.
Duplex alert! Our final Upper East Side deal is a unique space with the bedroom and bathroom upstairs. On the lower level, you’ll find a custom kitchen with dishwasher and a living room with extra-tall windows. There are two closets on each floor. Exposed brick throughout adds a classic touch. This first-floor unit opens out to a courtyard, too.
