340 East 93rd Street #D


This penthouse, one of five in the building, may just be the best corner apartment in all of Plymouth Tower, but you be the judge. Calling 925 square feet spacious is a bit of an understatement, especially when this currently configured one bedroom/one and a half bathroom sky palace is easily convertible into two bedrooms (but let’s not get ahead of ourselves just yet). You’ll want to pause and take in this wonderful home that lives 31 stories above the city streets, privately situated without neighbors on any side of you or even above your head. Soak in the sun by day, marvel at the breathtaking sunsets at dusk, and scan the city lights by night. At any time of day, enjoy seemingly endless southern and western panoramic views from Midtown Manhattan to the George Washington Bridge. Let’s walk inside and take a look.

Upon entrance through a generous foyer and deep entry closet, the southern layout delivers a spacious, updated windowed kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux granite counters, Maple cabinetry, and custom mosaic backsplash adjacent to the bonus half bathroom and second closet. Directly in front of you to the west, the truly breathtaking L-shaped living/dining room is wrapped in a wall of windows and able to support an array of furniture options for the ultimate entertaining space. The dining room area can be converted into a second bedroom, complete with sizable closet space and en-suite bath. At your right to the north, the master bedroom delivers more of those spectacular views along with your third closet: an entire wall of storage space. The bedroom borders a lovely full bathroom located next to a fourth “megacloset” that is even deeper than the the other three, so clearly storage is plentiful throughout. As an added bonus, the Tower Club is only one short flight up as you exit the apartment, so you don’t even need to wait for the elevator to enjoy the building’s best amenities.

Just one block from the East River, Asphalt Green, Gracie Mansion, and Carl Schurz Park, Plymouth Tower is a post-war, full service luxury building in the Yorkville neighborhood of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Services include a 24 hour concierge, onsite building management and staff, four elevators (three for passengers, one for freight), mezzanine-level laundry room, roof top health club (with private gym, lounge, sauna, lap pool, Jacuzzi, and roof deck), and full service garage with building access. Pets are allowed and the upcoming 2nd Avenue subway will be only one block away when completed to further enhance your current mass transit options. There is a standard cooperative application process required by the cooperative’s board of directors.

The maintenance is $1,701.45 per month (and includes access to all amenities), which was 50% tax deductible as of the 2012 tax year. You won’t be the only one to desire the best apartment in the building, so act fast!
