Description

Classic and elegant, this sun-filled and expansive 6-room home is superbly situated on Riverside Drive and showcases spectacular Riverside Park and Hudson River views from the entire formal expanse and master bedroom! Truly, grand picture windows provide brilliant light and showcase one of the most desirable vantage points in the city with magnificent sunsets guaranteed. A stunning seasonal perspective is also a remarkable benefit of owning this beautiful home.

These exceptional vistas only enhance the impressive scale and proportions of the two bedroom (convertible three bedroom), three-bathroom apartment as well as the very expansive, open loft-like formal rooms and beautiful natural light. Original old-world details have been lovingly preserved including well-maintained hardwood floors and classic moldings. The gracious floor plan offers a perfect balance and fabulous flow for both entertaining and living with a grand open formal expanse lined with massive windows overlooking the Park, a lovely entry gallery and a den/media room or study that can be open for entertaining or closed by French doors.

The kitchen has just been upgraded with new counters and cabinet pulls, as well as brand-new, stainless appliances including a dishwasher and has a butler’s pantry with original floor-to-ceiling built in storage just off the dining room. The split bedroom layout allows for privacy with a spacious master suite overlooking the Park and River with two deep closets. The second bedroom resides off the den/study separated by pocket doors and can include the extra room if desired.

The original windowed staff room is off the kitchen with full bath and can easily serve as a guest bedroom, home office or expanded kitchen.

285 Riverside Drive is an elegant, full-service cooperative designed by the famed architect Rosario Candela and to this day remains one of Riverside Drive’s premier buildings. The handsome 15-story building was built in 1926. Amenities include full-time doorman and live-in superintendent, as well as laundry, resident storage cages and a bike room.

Pets, pieds-a-terre and washer/dryers are allowed. 2% flip tax paid by buyer.
