Description

Stunning East River and city views complement a sophisticated and flexible layout which defines this grand, approx. 4,000 sq. ft. 9-into-8 room home. Enter the property from a private landing into a graciously scaled welcoming gallery appointed with marble floors, coat closet, and discrete powder room.

One is naturally drawn into the 32' living room facing East with water views, a working wood-burning fireplace, and soaring ceilings. The generously sized entertaining room features stunning oak herringbone floors with maple trim and allows for multiple seating areas, perfect for grand scale entertaining. Flowing seamlessly to the West through oversized double doors sits the sizable dining room easily accommodating 25 guests.

The meticulously renovated, wonderfully spacious eat-in kitchen is equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, a sizable center island, dining table, and custom cabinetry. A wine cave and dedicated laundry room are conveniently located directly off the kitchen. The private wing of the property features a sunny corner owner's bedroom with Southern city and Eastern river views. The ensuite bathroom is accessible via a luxurious dressing room with custom cabinetry and mirrored doors.

Two additional South facing bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms offer brilliant light and views clearing the rooftops across 52nd Street. A cozy fourth room is currently used as a library/office but could easily be converted to a bedroom if needed. Each room has its own heat and A/C system, several rooms have surround sound, and the apartment comes with a deeded storage unit. Built in 1931 by architects Bottomley, Wagner & White, River House offers the ultimate in privacy and full-service.

Located at the Eastern end of 52nd street, owners can enter the property's landscaped, cobblestoned motor-court through a set of discreet gates set off from the street. Included in ownership at River House is automatic membership to the most coveted River Club, a recently gut renovated private facility offering a top-of-the-line gym, squash and tennis courts, golf-simulator, swimming pool, and multiple entertaining and dining spaces. The white-glove cooperative is the midst of a significant ongoing local law 11 project.
