An Urban Oasis And So Much More

By AP Connolly

East End Avenue is the kind of street most New Yorkers might miss as they go to a favorite restaurant, shop, or club. You have to be looking for it. The neighborhood that it anchors, hugging the edge of the Upper East Side, traverses only 13 blocks or so with streets often ending in cul-de-sacs, giving the area an almost gated feel.

Adding to the appeal of this little pocket of Manhattan are the streets leading to Carl Schurz Park plus the front-seat view of the boat parade along the East River. So, now that we’ve tempted you, here are some excellent properties to call home. All are listed with Fox Residential Group. Visit them at:

Calm and serene water views welcome you to this unique pre-war home on East End Avenue with over 27 feet of frontage on the river.

The oversized dining room also overlooks the river and opens through double pocket doors to the newly renovated windowed kitchen. The eat-in kitchen has top-of-the-line appliances, including a Viking stove, double ovens, a Miele dishwasher, and a Sub-Zero refrigerator. A home office/study/staff room with a fourth bath sits tucked away between the kitchen and the additional space offered by a butler’s pantry. The three bedrooms are off a private hall, each with its en-suite bathroom, custom closets, and western views for enjoying the spectacular NYC sunsets. The primary bedroom has two walk-in closets, and the entire home has an abundance of closets and storage. Additional must-have conveniences include through the wall A/C and a Bosch washer/dryer. Design elements throughout include hardwood floors, crown molding, and 9’ 2” ceilings.
