This stunning classic six-room home is ideally positioned at the crossroads of 75th Street and Riverside Drive across the street from the beauty and recreation of Riverside Park, in one of the Drives more notable full-service buildings. This elegant prewar two bedroom, easily convertible three-bedroom home has been beautifully renovated balancing classic design, scale and details with modern comforts and luxury finishes. A big, bright, open western exposure from the formal expanse and master bedroom draws in great natural light and perfectly frames the lush green trees of Riverside Park. Glorious old-world details throughout the home includes 9-high-beamed ceilings, elegant crown and baseboard moldings, and oak hardwood floors (herringbone in the formal expanse).
The layout is as flexible as it is functional and offers a fabulous flow for entertaining and living. The gracious layout includes a 25 living room expanse, formal dining room (currently configured as a den-media room-study), two spacious bedrooms, three full baths, a windowed kitchen with laundry, a staff room (or 4th bedroom) with full bathroom and deep closet, and a very elegant entry foyer with floor-to-ceiling custom-fitted closets flanking gorgeous, custom built-in seating clad in walnut. Custom millwork can be found throughout including window storage with marble counters, pocket doors, and built-in desk, storage, and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves in formal dining room (den-media room as currently configured). Modern comforts and design elements include beautifully renovated spa-like baths with radiant heat floors, very generous custom closets, top-of-line stainless appliances and laundry.
The windowed, eat-in kitchen features abundant cabinet storage, granite counters and professional appliances including Thermador 4-burner gas range, large built-in microwave and dishwasher and Sub-Zero refrigerator. A full-size washer and dryer and casual dining area complete the space. Just off the kitchen is a windowed bedroom (original staff room) with full bathroom.
The master suite is quite stunning with glorious Riverside Park views, exceptional natural light, and two large custom closets, one a huge beautifully designed walk-in. The master bathroom was elegantly renovated with Bianco Dolomiti marble tile floors, walk-in shower with double rain/waterfall showerhead, Fantini fittings, built-in Robern medicine cabinets, custom vanity, Duravit toilet and radiant heat floor. The second bedroom offers very generous scale with a wall of custom-fitted closet storage. The shared hallway includes two additional storage closets (utility and linen) and a full renovated bathroom featuring custom vanity, custom wood cove ceiling, Duravit toilet, Kohler deep-soaking tub and radiant heat floor. This striking apartment has melded an elegant renovation, a functional layout and modern comforts while seamlessly retaining traditional grace and detail.
