SPACIOUS as a TOWNHOUSE plus VIEWS and AMENITIES!
A grand lifestyle awaits you in this +5,300 square foot home with 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, powder room, a Juliette balcony facing the River, mesmerizing views in all 4 exposures plus a full time doorman and concierge, and the prestigious River Club next door offering dining, tennis, pool, and much more. No wonder River House has been the "go to" destination for the best pre-war co-op lifestyle Manhattan has to offer.
From the moment you enter this River "mansion" on the 10th floor, you realize there is no other apartment in the city offering such a combination of enormous living space, transcendent views and remarkable value.
The apartment features a private elevator landing which leads into the grand gallery from which the 3 entertaining rooms are accessible, all of which face East over the River. The living room is a massive 30 feet long and has a wood burning fireplace, 2 exposures with spectacular views of the River and beyond, a 3- paned loggia and access to the Juliette balcony. At the opposite side of the gallery is the huge dining room with another loggia overlooking the River and double exposures. The paneled library lies in between these 2 stately rooms and features a wood burning fireplace, beautiful River views plus access to the Juliette balcony. It is a rarity to find a dining room in a prewar coop with such wonderful views. The enormous eat-in kitchen inspires great cooking, and full sized washer and dryer are conveniently located there as well. There is a large walk-in coat room and powder room discretely located off the gallery as well.
The private bedroom wing features 4 large bedrooms, one of which now acts as a den, plus 4 ensuite bathrooms, all with many oversized walk-in closets. Accessible from both the kitchen area and the bedroom hallway is the home office, a large staff room with an ensuite bathroom and an additional guest bedroom with ensuite bathroom.
The apartment has new through-the-wall air conditioning and all new windows have been recently installed.
