515 East 85th Street #8D


Modern renovations. Freshly painted. Bonus work/sleep space. Southern exposure. Spectacular kitchen. Generous cabinet & closet storage. If you seek an approximately 700 SF sun-drenched and spacious junior four unlike any other in the building, you may have found your NextHome.

From the moment you enter the foyer and its deep and wide hall closet with mirrored French doors, the lush tree-lined view draws you into the heart of the home. The refined peninsula kitchen with recessed-lit counter dining area is dressed from top to bottom with white high gloss cabinets, under-cabinet illumination, seemingly endless walnut-patterned drawers, subtle marble mosaic backsplash, white quartz counters, hand-selected appliances (including a full-width panel-matched dishwasher, slide-in range, counter-depth refrigerator, and a suspended microwave oven), and undermount sink with gooseneck fixture. The living room, brightly lit from southern exposure through a wide array of sound-dampening double-paned windows, delivers ample space for proper dining and living spaces, newly upgraded radiator cover, and a clever wireless-controlled illuminated display storage unit. The adjacent versatile bonus room is elegantly partitioned with frosted glass panels, bathed in more of that warm sunlight, and makes the perfect home office, nursery, or guest quarters for those last-minute visitors.

Moving to the west side of the home and next to the linen closet, your bath is quintessential New York with modern touches: raised subway tile with chrome fixtures, newly reglazed tub/shower with glass door enclosure, drawer vanity with white basin and chrome accents, and illuminated mirrored medicine cabinet. The south-facing master bedroom is nothing short of cavernous: with ample room for a king bed, two nightstands, multiple dressers, and more, this sun-bathed private space with double-wide closet and another upgraded radiator cover is over 200 square feet in area to rival some of the largest bedrooms in the Upper East Side. And with plank hardwood flooring, through-wall air conditioning, newly installed door handles, switch plates, and outlet covers throughout, this apartment has been well manicured for your arrival.

Easily accessible from the FDR Drive, about six minutes from the closest entrance to the Q Express subway station, and down the block from Carl Schurz Park and Gracie Mansion, 515 East 85th Street is a full service, red brick cooperative in a quiet, tree-lined section of the Upper East Side neighborhood of Yorkville. Amenities include a 24-hour doorman, live-in super, classic renovated lobby, laundry room with resident library, package room, storage room, and attached garage (waitlisted). For your convenience, another parking facility across the street typically has regular availability for monthly spaces within 90 days.

This unit is available upon the completion of a well-organized application process. Pets, sublets, pied-à-terre usage, and gifting are allowed — subject to board approval on a case-by-case basis.
