Description

An oasis of tranquility high above the East River, the incomparable 5,335 sf simplex at the legendary River House provides the most discerning buyer the rare opportunity to acquire a classic prewar apartment, fully renovated to the highest standards. The extraordinary light, magical views and impeccable restoration of the original 1931 Art Deco motifs by noted architect William Lawrence Bottomley combine to create a unique and luxurious aerie. Designer and art ready, Apartment 9G marries classic detail and craftsmanship with a brand new infrastructure, state-of-the-art systems and Level 5 finishes throughout. A private elevator landing opens to an Entry Gallery.

Full-height steel & glass doors create an elegant enfilade of 3 perfectly proportioned public rooms, more than 60 linear feet of sweeping riverfront views. A pair of elegant reception rooms with matching loggia bookend a spacious, terraced Library with a wood-burning fireplace. The splendid scale of the corner Living Room, with a wood burning fireplace with the original River House mantel, is balanced with that of the Dining Room, offering dinner guests dazzling nighttime views of the iconic Fifty-Ninth Street Bridge.

Each of these glamorous rooms is flooded with light from 6 single-paned windows showcasing the double-aspect views up and down the river. A discrete hallway off the Entry Gallery leads to a Powder Room. The versatile floorplan retains the original layout of 4 large primary Bedroom suites, each with a pristine en-suite windowed Bathroom and ample closet space. The Primary Bathrooms are finished in Turkish travertine, with Tunisian limestone flooring, and Toto Washlet water cabinets.

A potential 5th Bedroom with a 5th en-suite Bathroom may easily function as a Gymnasium or at-home Office. Adjacent to the Service Hall, a windowed Laundry Room includes a high capacity LG washer & dryer and a double storage closet. Equally well-suited for daily life or for entertaining on a larger scale, a sunny corner Breakfast Room adjoins a clean contemporary Chef’s Kitchen and a chic Wet/Bar Butler’s Pantry. Abundant cabinetry, expansive countertops of Brazilian quartzite, a full complement of Sub-Zero refrigerators, freezers and wine-refrigerator; a Wolf 5-burner cooktop, a double wall oven and microwave and two dishwashers provide the equipment, storage and prep space to fulfill any chef’s dreams.

Handsome hardwood floors finished in rift and quartered white oak are installed in a classic herringbone pattern in the main living areas and in wide planks in the Pantry, Kitchen & Breakfast Room. A 2 year gut-renovation includes installation new radiators, electrical, plumbing, HVAC and lighting systems. New fenestration provides maximum sound attenuation with 33 single-pane Skyline windows.

The climate control system includes 5-zone cooling, with 2 auxiliary PTAC units. The apartment is wired for electric roller shades, art lighting and a Lutron dimming system, a media system with primary & auxiliary dedicated audio/visual closets with racks. Floor-to-ceiling bookshelves have been installed in the Library and in 2 Bedrooms.

There are total of 20 closets. Long recognized as one of New York’s most prestigious and highly serviced apartment buildings. River House is located on a cul de sac with gates open to a private cobblestone courtyard.

A resident manager, 24 hour doorman and concierge service provide seamless security. Pets, pied-a-terres financing of up to 50% is permitted. A 3% Flip Tax is payable by the Purchaser.

River Club is a private full-service sporting and social club located at the base of the building and is accessible through the River House lobby. Tenant-Shareholders have access to the recently renovated Fitness Center and Pool and are welcome to apply for an automatic River Club Social Membership for access to a variety of dining and social spaces. Monthly assessment of $3,386.63.
