Elegant living on the Upper West Side with picturesque Hudson River views!
Designed by Rosario Candela in 1926, 285 Riverside Drive is a sought after address on a coveted drive. Approximately 2203 square feet, apartment 7A is a spacious three bedroom, two and-a-half bath home with expansive northern and western views of treetops and the Hudson River.
The elevator opens to a semi-private vestibule that leads to a large foyer, creating a gracious and welcoming introduction to a home that is perfect for entertaining and casual living. Off the foyer to the left are two large bedrooms, both with stunning river views, two walk-in closets, and a shared windowed bathroom in between. Between the second bedroom and the primary bedroom is a linen closet with ample space. Continuing through the sleeping quarters on the western side of the home, you enter the oversized corner primary bedroom which also has incredible double exposure views of the river. The primary bedroom has a windowed, en-suite bathroom and two closets: a walk-in closet and a second generous closet.
The other side of the foyer leads to a formal dining room and an enormous 25' living room with picture perfect views of the park and river. The dining room is open to the extra-large windowed kitchen which has been thoughtfully designed with efficiency in mind. A large island is the heart of the room with a six-burner gas range and an abundance of storage. The kitchen also boasts double Viking in-wall ovens, a built-in desk area, and a wall of cabinets for storage. Behind the kitchen is the laundry room with a full-sized Electrolux side-by-side washer/dryer, half bath, and a dedicated service entry. The laundry room was formerly a staff room which could be restored.
The classic and elegant layout of this apartment with high-beamed ceilings, original period details, plentiful closets throughout, and separation between living and sleeping quarters, make it the perfect place to call home!
