Bright, contemporary and serene, this tastefully renovated apartment overlooking resplendent Riverside Park affords both modern convenience and exudes pre-war charm.
Housed in an exquisite Rosario Candela building, the floor plan for Unit 1A is a lovely example of Candela's distinctive balance of elegance and function. A formal entry foyer opens into a gracious living room that is sun-drenched from double Northern and Western park-facing exposures. This space easily accommodates a full dining table, perfect for large or intimate gatherings. The substantial eat-in kitchen is windowed and outfitted with an abundance of gorgeous custom cabinetry, quartz countertops, sleek paneled Bosch appliances, and a deep farm sink. A separate hallway leads to two generously sized bedrooms, each with its own dedicated, custom closet. Situated between the two bedrooms, the modern bath is complete with new fixtures, including a digital medicine cabinet, and is also windowed.
Brand-new oversized windows have been installed in every room with tremendous detail to the preservation of pre-war character, from the delicate panes to the wrought iron grilles. Housed a full floor above street level, each breathtaking exposure is private and picturesque.
Great care has been taken to bring this incredible home up-to-date and ready to move right in.
285 Riverside Drive is a coveted and classic Candela-designed pre-war cooperative housed directly on Riverside Park. Residents enjoy white glove service, a full-time doorman, a live-in superintendent, as well central laundry in the building, a bike room and additional storage (waitlist).
Central to numerous modes of transportation, the 1/2/3 and B/C trains and the M5 Bus are footsteps away, as are terrific markets such as Whole Foods and Trader Joe's, and an abundance of charming shops and restaurants.
