Description(Reference number: 76310)
There’s a sense of calm that runs through this apartment. It all starts with its quiet Upper East Side location, continues in the understated design, and culminates in the hammock on the roof terrace. Of course, calm is a relative term in Manhattan, and almost any building will experience some traffic noise. However, there's something strangely relaxing about listening to the background hum of Manhattan as you swing gently in the breeze. And while there are more than a few steps to negotiate to reach the apartment, we're sure that you won't be disappointed when you reach the summit. Back down at street level, the immediate neighbourhood has a homey atmosphere thanks to its abundance of green spaces and attractive architecture. There are plenty of dining options, with a wide range of global cuisine reflecting the diverse neighbourhood. The rest of Manhattan is easily accessible in under half an hour, thanks to your proximity to 86th Street station – it's just a five-minute walk away.
*The apartment's on the fifth floor and there's no lift
*There are also stairs inside the home, which are quite steep
*Two people can sleep on a futon in the living room
*Your host doesn't provide anything in the way of basic ingredients – handily, you'll find a corner grocer, and a 7-Eleven steps away
