For its first time ever to market, this Manhattan jewel is coming in hot. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex apartment sits in the posh Upper East Side, only half a block from Central Park and Museum Mile.

But even more appealing? This week’s “What Can I Get” has its very own private garden oasis. A rarity indeed! Let’s take a peek around.

Collected And Timeless Interiors In Prime Manhattan Hot Spot

First, we are smitten with the interiors. They afford a collected, timeless vibe. This is complemented by 9.5-foot ceilings, a fabulous spiral staircase, and plenty of custom touches, like a built-in lighted bar.

Private Manhattan Oasis Is A Dream, Especially For Those Sheltering In Place

The outdoor oasis, however, is what really sells. It comes oversized and private, with ample space for lounging outdoors or firing up the grill – a welcome space to anyone in New York who is still sheltering in place.

Creature Comforts Abound, Including A Gourmet Kitchen And Lighted Bar

Of course, back inside there are all the creature comforts too. This includes a first floor family room, marble bath, second story den with that lighted bar, plus a dining alcove, designer kitchen, and gracious master suite.

In the kitchen, white cabinets and Bosch and LG appliances create a winning culinary space. It’s clad in granite counters, with large pantry storage, and easy access into the living space to entertain.

According to the listing, “Both levels feature hardwood floors and numerous windows. Most important in Manhattan, the smart layout makes use of every square foot allowing you to entertain both indoors and out.”

Current Owner Wisely Snapped Up Extra Square Footage

In fact, in order to create such a space the current owner bought extra interior and exterior square footage from the coop. Turns out, it was worthy investment, and it shows.

Apartment Offers A Restful Retreat, Plus Furniture Is Negotiable

For the ultimate in relaxation, the owner’s suite is just the right amount calm. It centers around a custom four-poster bed that is negotiable, met by a luxe marble bath with walk-in shower.

Per the listing, “This home has a low maintenance and is located in a meticulously maintained boutique coop building on one of the most desirable tree lined streets in Carnegie Hill. Pied-a-terre, subletting as well as guarantors are permitted with board approval.”

Fully renovated with exquisite outdoor space and all the New York haunts right outside your door!? Where do we sign?
