Description

Sprawling renovated 8 room home with breathtaking views of Riverside Park in an historic pre-war, turn-of-the-century, Beaux Arts masterpiece located on 79th Street and Riverside Drive. This pre-WWI home comprises five bedrooms and 3 windowed bathrooms, plus a powder room, in a bright and airy renovated living space that is dripping with ornate and impeccably preserved historic details. Some of these details include soaring 9'6" ceilings, Juliet balcony, dentil and vine moldings, French and pocket doors with original hardware and working transoms, stained glass windows, herringbone floors, and a magnificent formal wood-paneled and beamed dining room adorned with tiger-sawn oak paneling, and an ornate decorative mantle.

This owner completed a full renovation highlighting the prewar motifs, including stained-glass doors, crisp moldings, hardwood mahogany floors, fully outfitted closets including two walk-ins and storage room, a washer/dryer, Marvin commercial-grade windows offering stunning views of Riverside Park, complete with lush treetop vistas and open skies. There are six large windows, including a Juliet balcony, onto the park, spanning almost 45 feet.

Made up of approximately 2,757 square feet, this rare home recombined to its original 1907 floorplate, features generously sized rooms, including the side-by-side living and dining room and library/den ideal for large gatherings and entertaining. The current owners have hosted catered parties accommodating up to 150 guests, making this an entertainer's paradise. The windowed eat-in-kitchen has capacious storage including an enormous pantry and wine storage, as well as endless granite counter space.

There is a Bosch refrigerator, Thermador oven, Bosch microwave, Bosch dishwasher, and a double sink. The primary bathroom has a vaulted ceiling, stained glass, double sinks, an enormous walk-in shower with double rain shower heads.

The powder room is perfectly situated for guests and the double-long library/den has a cozy TV corner and built-ins for storage and books. This room can be split in half in order to create an additional bedroom. The foyer is a gracious and impressive entrance to this magnificent home, from the private vestibule housing only one additional home.

Located in the heart of Upper West Side Historic District, The Riverdale is a turn-of-the-century Beaux Arts architectural masterpiece, steeped in history, built in 1907, designed by famed New York architect George Frederick Pelham. The nine-story brick, limestone, and terra-cotta cooperative has only 26 homes and is extremely sound financially and physically. In recent years, the cooperative updated the elevator and lobby, as well as developed a fully landscaped roof-deck with multiple seating areas and unobstructed panoramic views of the iconic Riverside Drive bend, Riverside Park, the Boat Basin, and the Hudson River. Pets are welcome, and there is an attentive and much-loved live-in Superintendent, as well as Porter, who will take your packages and tend to your every need. There is a great deal of service for only 26 homes. Two private storage cages are included with the sale, there is bike storage, and every three years there is an auction for two available parking spots (approx.. $700/month in past years, but price cannot be guaranteed). The restoration of this historic jewel of a lobby was intentionally kept in line with its original aesthetic by a renowned NYC preservationist architect.

This location, nestled next to the most beautiful part of Riverside Park, is quiet and serene, but only steps to all that Broadway has to offer including the 1 train, 79th Street cross-town, Zabar's, Citarella, Fairway, and easy access to the Henry Hudson Parkway for airports, Long Island, Connecticut, Westchester, Upstate and New Jersey. The Museum of Natural History, Central Park, New York Historical Society, and Lincoln Center are all in your backyard.
