The Georgica–An Upper East Side Luxury Condominium That Combines Tranquility with Modern Design
The Georgica, located on 305 East 85th Street, takes its name from an East Hampton lake, Georgica Pond.
Located on a tree-lined street in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, its glassed design is meant to inspire the “shimmering” effect of its namesake with “sublime composition.” The building blends bronze, champagne and white to create a modern exterior and interior.
With only 58 residences and two to four apartments per floor, it offers space, privacy, contemporary design and outstanding amenities — the ultimate New York property.
Developed by the Ascend Group LLC http://ascendgroupllc.com/ and designed by CetraRuddy Inc. http://www.cetraruddy.com/, The Georgica has also supported The Nest http://buildanest.com/aboutus.asp, a non-profit organization that helps female-owned businesses/artists and artisans worldwide, by hosting benefits and creating awareness about the organization.
Space, light and modern design, along with a 24-hour attended lobby, state-of-the-art fitness facility, Wii activity room and New York’s finest concierge, Abigail Michaels, the Georgica is a boutique building with meticulously-detailed finishes and a rooftop garden that offers residents panoramic views.
Their landscape designer, H.M. White, has an impressive list of residential and commercial projects throughout New York. The designs lend themselves to creating outdoor spaces that serve as “multi-functioning’ landscapes.
That’s evident in the Georgica’s rooftop design; with bamboo hedges, tall flowering plants and Ipe decking with a summer kitchen and bar. There’s also a play area for children, intimate seating and an outdoor flatscreen television. Definitely multi-functioning, with the added benefit of incredible views.
The units themselves have beautiful and impeccable attention to detail, with floor-to-ceiling windows, sitting and dressing rooms and White Oak Herringbone floors. The kitchens have Calacata Gold marble countertops, Miele appliances and wine coolers. Baths have radiant heat marble floors, Koehler tubs, and Waterworks fixtures.
Convenience to transportation, cultural hotspots and great schools have attracted families to this beautiful Upper East Side residence. According to a November article on Curbed NY, that there are only seven remaining apartments at the Georgica now and active listings range from $1.695 million to $4.35 million.
They’ve reduced their pricing on some units (a three-bedroom, three and a half bath sold at a discount of 36.7 percent), and World Architecture News called the Georgica“ a good value for the neighborhood.”
If you’re a fan of this established neighborhood, it’s the perfect time to buy a Manhattan luxury apartment at the Georgica. With close access to the subway, Museum Mile, Central Park, Madison Avenue shopping, four hospitals and great schools, The Georgica is quiet, modern elegance and the perfect place to raise a family.
