Description

RARE. REFINED. RIVIERA. Timeless Luxury Reimagined for the Modern New Yorker.

Your opportunity to own a 'unicorn' palatial 9 room, 4-bed, den, 3-bath luxury home with central air conditioning, a rarity in a pre-war cooperative. The immense space comprises an entire wing of The Riviera with 4 exposures, and 14 oversized windows. Every aspect was meticulously designed to accord privacy and expansive entertaining; from hand-plastered moldings, 7' tiger oak wainscot, and a carved marble gas fireplace, to full-sized LG washer and vented dryer, 10-fixture master bath, with a home automation, audio, and theater system for feature viewing. This magnificent residence fulfills every desire of the most discriminating New Yorker in the Upper Upper West Side.

Superbly renovated, this home design melds rich historic character and a chic downtown feel to create an expansive yet intimate sanctuary in the City. The solid marble slab entryway from Jumilla Spain, flows seamlessly into a grand open entertaining and living space, with a formal parlor as well as a large family room open to a huge eat-in kitchen. The formal dining room seats 20 for dinner, prepared in a gourmet kitchen with Viking, Sub-Zero, and Miele appliances, a grill, custom cherry cabinets, built-in espresso maker, 2 sinks/disposals, 25 feet of solid granite counters and a 120-bottle wine cooler. The residence has been designed to combine the best of open entertaining space flowing from the foyer to the library to the kitchen and into the dining room and parlor.

A private hallway leads to three peaceful bedrooms separating party exuberance from family repose. A private corner master suite with Parisian-like views features adjoining den/office, mahogany walk-in closet, spa bath with heated marble floor, Jacuzzi, digital massage shower, double vanities and mahogany accents. A separate wing features two bedrooms and large bath with stunning Italian marble slab walls The fourth bedroom enjoys its own ensuite marble bath.

All bathrooms have heated floors. Audubon Park is a sought after community cul-de-sac, well suited for today's varied lifestyles and neighborly values. Stroll along winding streets past grand pre-war buildings down Riverside Drive, then across the new Denny Farrell Pedestrian Bridge at 151st Street (ADA-accessible) to Fort Washington Park and the Hudson River Greenway. Swim, sport and relax at the Denny Farrell Riverbank State Park, a 28-acre state-of-the-art facility offering diverse recreational, athletic and arts experiences for all ages, interests and abilities.

Shop at the new Super Foodtown or dine at one of the many multi-cuisine outdoor restaurants along Broadway. You'll also have easy access to Columbia University's burgeoning Manhattanville campus, CCNY, and the world-class NY Presbyterian/Columbia Medical Center. Engage in early Americana at the Morris-Jumel Mansion, Trinity Cemetery, Hamilton Grange, Hispanic Society and other historic locations. Convenient transportation is yours with the 1 train at 157th, C train at 155th, and M4, M5 and BX6 buses on the Broadway corner.

Quick auto access as well at 158th to the West Side Hwy and George Washington Bridge, and across 155th St to Yankee Stadium and the Major Deegan Expwy.
