Rare opportunity to lease a turnkey, entirely renovated and oversized two bedroom condominium with protected southern park views and all-day light. The 8th floor at 359 East 68th Street is a direct elevator-entry home of almost 1,600 square feet, with separated living and sleeping quarters and top-of-the-line finishes throughout.

Enter into the home off of your private elevator to be greeted by a gracious foyer gallery. To the left is the living wing of the home, completely opened up to allow for

... maximum southern and eastern light to flow throughout the rooms. The kitchen has been gut renovated and now features a waterfall marble island, chef's appliances, and ample storage. Just adjacent to the kitchen is a temperature-controlled wine cellar. The dining area is large enough for a ten-person dining table and is adjacent to an outdoor terrace with room for a table. The living area additionally boasts grand scale and enjoys the southern light across the park, which is eternally protected.

On the western end of the home is the sleeping wing, beginning with a utility room with side-by-side washer/dryer and slop sink with additional storage. The second bedroom is sizable and faces south, and enjoys an en-suite bath with tub. The grand master bedroom, with its own planters terrace, gets all-day light and enjoys an enormous, built-out walk-in closet with window. The master bath has a double vanity, enormous rain shower with a seat, and tons of storage. The home has brand new white oak flooring throughout, recessed lighting controlled on dimmers, and multiple zones of air conditioning.

359 East 68th Street is a boutique doorman condominium located directly across from St. Catherine's Park, on the corner of First Avenue. It is surrounded by restaurants, shopping, and culture, and just a block away from the new Second Avenue Subway stop.
