Description

Graciously proportioned and impeccably finished, residence 12D at the famed River House is a grand yet inviting home with resplendent views of the East River and a charm only found in the city's finest pre-war cooperatives. Currently a spacious 3-bedroom pied-a-terre designed by the famed Mica Ertegun and showcasing one of the country's finest contemporary art collections, this renovated home is a rare opportunity in today's market. Direct elevator entry into a private vestibule opens onto a formal gallery elegantly separating the public and private wings of the home. A 29-foot living room lined with custom bookcases boasts a wood-burning fireplace and enchanting views eastward to the river; the perfect place to entertain on a grand scale or host more intimate gatherings.

Through the gallery, past a spacious powder room and walk-in closet, is the home's formal dining room, comfortably fitting a table for 12 or more and finished with double crown molding and custom trim work. The updated kitchen with river views and an adjacent butler's pantry both have ample cabinet storage and professional-grade appliances by Garland and Gaggenau, dual refrigerators, a wine cooler and ice maker. Historic details abound, including a plate warmer and a velvet lined silver safe.

Completing this wing of the home are a fully-outfitted and windowed laundry room, maid's room with bath, and the home's service entry. The private wing's entry gallery leads to two spacious bedroom suites, one opening onto a north-facing planting terrace, offering dual light-filled exposures and expansive bed chambers. Both have tastefully renovated windowed bathrooms, one with an oversized windowed shower, and walk-in closets with built-in storage. The northern suite is adjacent to a 14-foot deep windowed dressing room, outfitted with floor to ceiling millwork.

A third bedroom, currently used as a library or study, offers a wall of built-in storage, a cedar closet, and a stunning Art Deco-inspired bathroom, along with a second planting terrace facing west. Updated and maintained to exacting standards, residence 12D includes Lutron lighting controls, power-operated window shades, through-wall HVAC, and hardwood flooring. One of the city's most highly revered cooperatives, River House was constructed in 1931 and designed by William L. Bottomley. A private cobblestone motor court offers a discreet entry sequence, where you are greeted by 24/7 building staff offering the finest levels of service as well as beautiful landscaped gardens.

River House residents have the opportunity to opt into membership at The River Club, a full-service sports and social club offering squash courts, tennis courts, two golf simulators, a fitness center, swimming pool, library, ballroom, guest rooms and a residents-only dining room and bar overlooking the river. 3% flip tax paid by purchasers. Pets and pied--terre permitted.
