168 East 90th Street, Apt 1-E
This duplex, approx. 1820 sf home with 260 sf of private outdoor space perfectly melds sleek, modern renovation to the classic style of an 1890's brownstone with nearly 80 feet of exposed brick walls and 3 fireplaces upstairs, and 4ft wide, stone foundation walls downstairs. The 13 feet high exposed walls upstairs add to the grandeur of the main floor, and enhance the airiness of open concept design.
No chef or serious entertainer can over look the huge kitchen upstairs. As the kitchen opens to the dining room and the entrance to the private outdoor space, you can entertain while you cook! All of the appliances are from the Kenmore Pro-line, including a commercial size refrigerator, 36" 50k BTU pro range and oven, wall oven and a warming drawer.
Smartly, the two main bedrooms are upstairs; one on the north, facing 90th street, and one on the south, facing the patio / deck. There are also two full bathrooms, one with a very zen Ariel steam shower, and the other with an Ariel, jacuzzi-style, deep bath. Both have Kohler fixtures. Conveniently, the washer and gas dryer are on the main floor.
Downstairs is a full entertainment space with gorgeous, Manhattan schist foundation walls. Like the owner, you can re-purpose the rec room and the office for 2 additional non-conforming bedrooms, both with windows either facing north to 90th or south to the deck, and one with its own, huge, full bath. There is an additional half bath and storage area off the living room. Due to the stone and cement walls, no matter how loud you are, you neighbors will hear very little! So put the kids downstairs or party away!
Silence is golden. Not only do you have thick brick, stone or cement walls both upstairs and downstairs to keep the sound in, the owner installed additional sound proof windows in all windows of the home (except for 2) to keep the sound out. Additionally, all the rooms have very quiet split unit AC's and fans. If you are looking to have a calm respite away from the world, this is your home.
As the 3 building co-op complex historically has been conservatively managed, this home has some of the cheapest maintenance in the city at less than $0.88/sf. Building amenities include a roof deck, video intercom and a large washing machine and dryer for bulky loads as most all units have their own in-unit washer and dryers. The building allows for cats.
Transportation is super convenient: You are 4 blocks to the 4/5/6 and the crosstown bus, approx 8 short blocks to the Q and the 90th Street Ferry, and less than a half block to hail a cab on Lex.
