New Offering in a Rosario Candela Designed Building - Flexible 3-bedroom, 2 bath home with grand proportions. This classic pre-war home resides in the coveted Riverside Drive corridor.
The adaptable layout of this home is one of its best features. It offers the flexibility to configure and reconfigure as needs change over time. Enter this home through an elegant foyer which serves as the home’s nexus with central access to the entire apartment. The expansive living room is large enough and is currently being used as a combined living and dining room. This allows the separate oversized formal dining room to serve as the primary bedroom. An adjacent hallway leads to a separate and private wing with two additional well-proportioned bedrooms along with two windowed bathrooms, one of which is a Jack-and-Jill (shared between the bedrooms).
The opposite end of the apartment includes a dining nook, which is currently configured as a workspace with a built-in desk. This leads to the updated kitchen that has been nicely appointed with wood cabinetry, ample counter space, stainless steel appliances, and a stackable full-size washer/dryer (in the former 1/2 bath). Among the many options for this floorplan is the ability to open and expand the kitchen into the original formal dining room and create an additional bedroom in the original kitchen’s footprint.
Other features of this home include oversized windows, 3 exposures providing great light, quintessential details including picture moldings, hardwood flooring and tremendous closet space.
