About 520 East 86th Street

Greeted with a stripped steel entrance door on your private elevator landing, one instantly realizes this will be a unique home...traditional juxtaposed with contemporary. Peeking inside, the appeal of this renovated prewar residence is immediately elegant entrance foyer, high ceilings, decorative moldings, beautifully lustered herringbone floors, large bay windows, woodburning fireplace, gracious layout, and well-proportioned rooms. Throughout this renovated 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom home with spacious living room, formal dining room, library, and solarium, there is a reverence to the original 1930 details and architecture. The renovation design modernized the space to be more 21st century friendly: a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom to include double sinks and large stall shower, the kitchen reconfigured for family gatherings, designated laundry area, and new casement windows. Originally 10 rooms, this light-filled home is an exceptional offering on the Upper East Side.

Commissioned by the Estate Office of Vincent Astor, Charles Platt designed 520 East 86th Street as the handsome "new and improved" sibling of 530 East 86th Street. The limestone base and brick facade, multi-paned windows, and gracious lobby, make one feel as if they are entering one of Platt's distinguished country houses. This full-service building, with fitness room, basketball court, private storage, 24 hour doorman, and superb resident manager, is close to Carl Schurz Park and the new Second Avenue subway. The building is pet friendly.
