With the collaborative efforts of husband/wife team architect Stephen Jacobs and interior designer Andi Pepper, this beautiful Riverside Drive cooperative was transformed into a warm home with a touch of townhouse flare.
Entering the foyer, you are welcomed by mosaic tiles that entice you to follow. To your right, an arched stairway leads to the upstairs bedrooms. To your left, a beautifully outfitted office sets the stage for a productive day ahead. Straight ahead, the classic layout with separate living and dining rooms, recalls the exquisite architecture of the early 1900s, and brings to mind cocktails at sunset and lavish dinners of yore. Around the corner, you find the chef's kitchen adorned with Woodmode cabinetry, White Carrara marble countertops, and outfitted with a Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances. Exploring deeper you, notice small touches; the breakfast bar, which offers the perfect perch for your morning coffee; the butler's pantry with separate dishwasher and W/D closet.
As you head upstairs, the spot lighting creates a calming energy that brings solace after a long day's work. You pass the secondary bedrooms; each features tremendous closet space and a complimentary en-suite bathroom. You finish your tour in a king sized master suite adorned with four closets as well as an incredible master bathroom flush with Crema Marfil marble.
Modernized features such as a three-zone central AC system and a two-stage water filtration system that offers both hot and cold filtered water emphasize comfort. And with attention to detail that cannot be missed, from the D Reis walnut millwork to the WaterWorks fixtures, this home resonates warmth and beckons you to stay.
Designed by James E. R. Carpenter, 173-175 Riverside Drive is a well-established and impeccably maintained co-op with full service staff. The building offers a fitness center, storage units (at additional fee), two laundry rooms, a bike room, playroom and game room and is pet friendly. Plush with amenities and perfectly located across from Riverside Park, this cooperative is the essence of Upper West Side living.
