Description

Combining stunning prewar details, uptown spaciousness and fantastic views, this beautifully renovated one-bedroom, one-bathroom home is a not-to-be-missed treasure in a revered Washington Heights cooperative. Abundant southern and western exposures bathe this expansive home with golden light and breathtaking river views while nearly 10-foot-tall ceilings, handsome millwork and hardwood floors nod to the grandeur of a bygone era. Arrive in the large living room to find plenty of space for sitting and dining areas.

Ahead, the smartly updated kitchen features tons of contemporary cabinetry, fine stone and premium stainless steel appliances. There's room for a king-size bed in the bedroom, and the black-and-white bathroom is classic New York with gleaming subway tiles and updated fixtures. Set within the Audubon Park Historic District, The Riviera is striking Renaissance Revival brick and limestone building completed in 1911.

By far the largest and most expensive apartment house at the time, 790 Riverside earned accolades for its magnificent location, architecture and amenities. Today's Riviera residents enjoy majestic original details, including a marble lobby with stained glass windows and hand-painted coffered ceilings, plus full-time doorman service, live-in superintendent, laundry and bike room. In this serene historic enclave, you're surrounded by wonderful riverfront outdoor space and epic sunset views.

Great local shopping and dining line the surrounding blocks, and New York-Presbyterian, Columbia University and the City College of New York are easily accessible. Transportation is excellent with 1 and C trains and the Henry Hudson Parkway all within reach.
