Description

This home expresses the ideal of Upper West Side living. It is in a grand pre-War building, with beautiful park views in the summer and river views in the winter. It has been owned and enjoyed by the same family for over half a century, and possesses recognizable provenance.

It holds within it the memories of lives well-lived. Figures literary, comedic and renowned have passed through and enjoyed these rooms.

27 windows frame the apartment, with four exposures and wonderful light. Restored oak floors in herringbone, parquet, and straight-plank patterns are throughout, and restored oak trim adorns the windows.

The ceilings are over nine feet, elevated by their pre-War beams.

One enters through a private elevator foyer into a 32-foot-long gallery.

To the left is the magnificent corner great room with perennial Riverside Park views and an open chef's kitchen. Off of the great room is a foyer leading to one of the home's voluminous five bedrooms, overlooking this historic, tree-lined block of West 84th Street and replete with a sauna and windowed full bathroom with jacuzzi tub. Also off of the great room is a powder room.

Behind the chef's kitchen lies a small staff quarters with bathroom and service entrance.

To the right down the gallery are the other four full bedrooms, as well as a huge den/library, the home's second kitchen, and two more full bathrooms. Three of the bedrooms and the den overlook 84th Street, one of which, the primary bedroom, also enjoys a second exposure to the east from its corner position. The primary bedroom has a substantial dressing room and an en-suite windowed bathroom with a tub and counter large enough for dual sinks.

The den/library anchors this side of the home, with its double doors and dignified oak built-ins.

It sits across the gallery from the second kitchen, which is windowed and eat-in with red tile. The washer/dryer is concealed on one side of the kitchen, as is the home's second service entrance. An adjacent large pantry/storage room serves the home.

All of the bedrooms have abundant closet space.

The fourth full bathroom-the second on this side of the home-is large and windowed with a tub. Built-in desk and office nooks enhance the bedrooms.

Built in 1929, 118 Riverside Drive is one of the preeminent Upper West Side co-ops, full-service and white-glove with 24-hour doorman, live-in superintendent, and myriad other staff. Together with its adjoined twin building, 110 Riverside Drive, the 110-118 Riverside Drive co-op enjoys a full suite of amenities: 24-hour gym, children's playroom, bike and storage rooms, lending library, laundry room, and even a ping-pong table.

Between the two buildings is a verdant courtyard, which can be enjoyed by residents. The co-op also allows pets.

Located on the corner of Riverside Drive and West 84th Street, 118 Riverside is situated at one of the most prime points in the Upper West Side Historic District. The building is surrounded by the neighborhood's emblematic pre-War brownstone and apartment house architecture, as well as all of the shopping, dining, museums, and cultural amenities for which the neighborhood has become famous.

And, of course, both Riverside and Central Park.

The building enjoys excellent car access in and out of the city via Riverside Drive and its entrances onto the Westside Highway. The nearby 79th Street Boat Basin is one of only a handful of marinas for boats and yachts along the Hudson River. Proximate subway stations are at West 79th and 86th Streets along the 1-line, and both the M79- and M86-Select Buses allow for easy crosstown commutes.
