Apartment 6/7B is a rare treat-- a five bedroom, four bathroom original pre-war duplex that feels like a house but has all the advantages of coop living. This is an opportunity to own an apartment designed in the grand 1920s tradition by famed architect, JER Carpenter, in his Riverside Drive masterpiece at 173-175 Riverside Drive. This unique 8 room home with its approximately 2800 SF spread across two floors offers a highly desirable separation of spaces.
All major rooms in 6/7B face south overlooking a handsome row of brownstones and the Rice Mansion, with side views of Riverside Park and the Soldiers and Sailors Monument. The 6th floor entry foyer, finished in venetian plaster, showcases the handsome original wrought iron and brass staircase. To the left through French doors is the cozy light-filled study that can be also be used as a fifth bedroom or home office and has its own en-suite full bathroom. Directly ahead from the foyer, an oversized living room, large enough to hold a baby grand, gets bathed in southern light and features a decorative fireplace and grand proportions. The adjacent dining room is equally spacious, perfect for entertaining. The eat-in chef's kitchen is a cook's dream--with abundant counter and cabinet space, a subzero fridge, and a swoon-worthy 48" vented Viking dual oven range with six burners and a griddle. The butler's pantry provides additional cabinet space, has a wine fridge, bar sink, and a concealed Miele washer/dryer. This apartment is ready for all those parties you've been waiting to host.
Upstairs, a quiet 7th floor wing has four additional bedrooms and three full bathrooms. A wide hallway provides ample space for bookshelves or even a workspace. Three of the bedrooms face south, flooded in light with the higher floor gaining more bright sky over the brownstones. Two bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, and there is third full bathroom in hallway. The primary bedroom has a huge walk-in California closet and a large second closet. The fourth bedroom is now a huge home office and faces the planted inner courtyard.
