116 EAST 63RD STREET, APARTMENT 9C
Three-bedroom, two-bath, 1,900-square-foot co-op with library.
Asking Price: $3.195 million.
Maintenance: $2,943 per month.
Broker: Sandra Balan, the Corcoran Group.
Who: Thomas Scilaris, orthopedic surgeon; Katrina Scilaris, housewife; and Tommy II (pictured).
Is this what you’re looking for?
Thomas: It is. We have one child and we’d like to have more, so we want a three-bedroom. I wish it had an extra bath, but you can’t have everything in New York.
Katrina: There’s a washer and dryer, and it’s a co-op. That’s been [missing] with other apartments we’ve seen … With the baby, I’m always doing laundry.
Who: Anne Eisenhower, interior decorator.
Why are you moving?
I’m looking for my daughter. She lives in Washington, D.C. [with her kids], and they’re moving back.
You must be excited.
I am—if I can just find her an apartment. We’re looking up in Carnegie Hill, but we’re so desperate we’re looking south. We did bid on an apartment on 72nd between Lexington and Third, and it went for 10 percent over asking.
Who: Lynn S.
How long have you been hunting?
I’m looking for a friend. She really liked this place, and with prices so high, she wanted somebody else’s opinion.
Do you live nearby?
I just moved from Tribeca. The restaurants are better down there, but the park makes up for it.
So will you give this place the thumbs-up?
Definitely! It’s perfect for them.
