Description

The words "trophy" and "luxury"in relation to real estate have been diluted by overuse in Manhattan, so let us explain what really makes a property here truly worthy of lavish praise and a prestigious imprimatur. It's actually quite straightforward the size and layout of the property, location of apartment in the building (typically the top floor/penthouse), the wow factor of the views, the quality of the interior build, where in town the building is located and how many services and amenities the building offers ALL need to be 10's for a unit to be accurately called a Trophy.

The Penthouse (aka Suite 2) at 240 Riverside Blvd meets and exceeds these criteria and gives new meaning to luxury. Looking for a chef's dream kitchen fully equipped with the best appliances on the market capable of entertaining for huge numbers of guests (when we can again)?

Check. Need space to eat alone for intimate meals as well as a formal dining room for opulent dinner parties? Check.

Expansive living space for communal living? Check. How about multiple private terraces with 20' high ceilings totaling 480 sq ft, one for company and one for privacy?

Check and check. You want the features that in 2020 are now considered standard for a posh property including heated bathroom floors, centralized lighting, multi-zone A/C, audiovisual equipment apartment-wide, electric window treatments for the walls of glass surrounding you, the finest materials used for the finishes whether wood, metal or stone? Six checks!

Please pull up the floor plan on this listing while you read the description to fully understand how special this apartment is.

Almost 5,000 square feet on a completely private floor that requires special fob access for discretion and security (to reach the parking garage you never have to leave the building, there's elevator access). Every single room in this apartment has multi million dollar views, in its entirety the Penthouse has 360 degree vistas including the Hudson River & NJ in the west, The George Washington Bridge to the north, charming City views to the east and the super tall and iconic buildings of Midtown to the south it's magical, it's sun flooded all day and it's what you should expect from a home of this caliber.

This simplex with 12' soaring ceilings is efficient and versatile. Currently used as a pied-a-terre by one of American industry's most respected executives, the layout is arranged as a 2 bedroom apartment with an enormous master suite, with his and her bathrooms and substantial closet storage for both that can overnight be utilized as a 4 bedroom home without moving a single wall.

If you decide to make his library/office and her office into bedrooms you will not interfere with the exceptional flow that perfectly separates the private living quarters from the communal entertaining spaces it's ready.

The best part of being the buyer right now is the value. Priced under $2,800 per square foot, the Penthouse at 240 RSB is a steal. For perspective this apartment on Billionaire's Row would start with a cost of $40M and on Fifth Ave would start at $30M.

Reach out and arrange a showing if you are in the market for a quintessential Trophy property.
