Description

NEWLY RENOVATED 10 ROOM RESIDENCE AT THE RIVER HOUSE
Upon arriving at this full-floor home, you are greeted by a private foyer which opens into a 28 ft. x 8 ft. gallery. You are immediately drawn to an expansive 26 ft. x 16 ft. great room, giving center stage to mesmerizing river views through five oversized windows. Adjacent to the great room is the formal living room which faces east, showcasing the same river views.

A wood burning fireplace and 9'6' ceiling heights add to the grandeur. At the south end of the main living area is a study/library. Highlights include a wood burning fireplace, a home office nook and a cozy observatory looking southeast down at the East River.

Beyond the study is a media room/den which has southern and western exposures, oblique river views and a home bar perfect for entertaining.
At the north end of the main living area is the entrance to the eat-in kitchen which has abundant counter space and a working island, three sinks, two dishwashers, two refrigerators, a wine cooler and an eight burner stove which vents out. With a quaint seating banquette, this is the perfect place to start the day.

A laundry room and a secondary bedroom/staff room with bath en-suite are located just beyond the kitchen.
As you head back to the gallery, a long bedroom hallway features an exquisitely designed powder room, a secondary bedroom with a bath en-suite, and stunning southern river views. Further down the hall is the primary bedroom suite which expands 18ft x 12ft with two primary baths, two dressing rooms and a sitting room.

Completely renovated and designed within the last five years, this home has world-class finishes and boasts elegance with over 9 1/2 foot ceilings throughout. The home's 31 windows all have beautiful exposures, some with east-facing direct river views. The apartment has quadruple exposure throughout, beautiful hardwood floors in the main rooms, wall-to-wall carpet in the bedrooms and recessed lighting throughout.

Distinguished by its old world charm, River House is one of the highly revered buildings in the city and offers its residents unparalleled service and tranquility. Erected in 1931 and designed by William L. Bottomley, the building sits on a cul-de-sac and has a 27-story tower adjoined by two 15-story wings on each side.

There are 5 passenger elevators as well as 5 service elevators located conveniently to serve the apartments. The building houses 80 residences and 36 in staff. Original wrought-iron gates welcome you into a private cobblestone motor court, an elegant and rare feature for residential buildings in Manhattan today.

Special features also include world-class service, 24/7 staff, and lush landscaped gardens. A storage unit conveys with the apartment (River House reserves the right to assign the storage unit #).
Residents can opt into exclusive membership access to The River Club.

The health club set itself apart from the start as a full-service sporting and social club. It rests on the lower floors of the River House and features squash courts, tennis courts, 2 state-of-the-art golf simulators, a fitness center, swimming pool, library, ballroom, guest rooms and a resident-only dining room and bar overlooking the river.
3% flip tax paid by purchasers.

Pets and pied--terre permitted.
