This is a truly spectacular and unique River House estate residence formerly owned by a celebrated Wall Street icon. A prestigious Midtown cooperative building with a private motor court on a quiet residential cul-de-sac block, there are unobstructed vistas of the East River, Roosevelt Island, Long Island, and the NY Harbor from many over sized picture windows in the corner living room. It is separated from the formal dining room by a wood burning fireplace ensconced in an exposed brick half-wall creating a gracious flow between spaces creating the ideal area for entertaining and living. There’s a palatial master bedroom with en suite bath and generous closet space, a very large second bedroom with a private bath, and a smaller third bedroom with a full bath. All bedroom windows are huge with sunny southern exposures. The L-shaped windowed kitchen is spacious with exceptional storage space. There are very high ceilings throughout. The new owner may have the option to maintain an outside maid’s room for a nominal monthly charge. The apartment includes private basement storage.
This grand Art Deco building has a spectacular lobby and residents enjoy concierge services provided by a peerless staff. River House allows 50% financing, pied-a-terrres, and pets are permitted as well. The building has a private club, The River Club, which tenants may join for an annual fee. The club (currently under renovation and re-opening later this spring) features a swimming pool, tennis court, squash courts, lovely dining room, and private rooms for guests. River House is one of the top cooperative buildings in Manhattan.
