Sitting six stories above the East River banks, this quiet one bedroom is the ideal elevation for up close viewing of the calming ripples and exciting boat activities on the river. From the moment you step into this quiet home you will be drawn to the gorgeous views seemingly right beneath your oversized windows stretching from bridge to bridge and beyond. You will never tire of enjoying your morning coffee while watching the sunrise on one of your two private balconies. Dinners al fresco will feel like dining on a river cruise with the magic of evening lights bouncing off the rolling river and passing ships so close you think you might reach them. Wait until you host your first 4th of July party with front row seats to the fireworks display.
Step away from the stunning views and find an oversized living and dining room that accommodates abundant furniture and gives access to the two balconies. Facing east and south, sunlight floods the room most of the day. The tastefully renovated kitchen has ample storage and dishwasher. The gracious foyer features the first of your three deep closets. Also facing east, you will awaken to gorgeous morning light streaming into the large bedroom that can easily fit your king size bed as well as a seating area and home office. Refinished parquet floors throughout, custom solar shades and through the wall a/c in both major rooms complete this wonderful home.
One Gracie Terrace is an elegant full service cooperative nestled on a peaceful cul-de-sac at the end of East 82nd Street and abutting the stunning East River Promenade.

Amenities include a full time doorman, laundry, new fitness center with Peloton, landscaped courtyard patio, bicycle room, private storage and on-site parking garage with discount for residents. The bright and modern hallways were recently redecorated and the elevators will be replaced soon with no assessment. Pets and pied-a-terres allowed and W/D are permitted with approval.
