The Normandy, 140 Riverside Drive, Apt. 18D. Here is an unusually large, elegant, light and sky-filled one bedroom-plus-separate-dining-area-plus-large-formal-entry-foyer home, located in this Upper West Side icon, Emory Roth's art-deco 1938 masterpiece, the Normandy, directly across the street from Riverside Park. A stairway right outside the apartment door leads directly to the building's furnished roofdeck, with fantastic direct views up and down the Hudson and the UWS. This home has been lovingly restored by the current owner. It has 9-foot ceilings and herringbone floors throughout. All the windows have been replaced with custom built, double-paned, non-mullioned casement windows by Panorama Windows. In addition, the 12-foot wide ceiling-to-kneeheight northeast-facing windows in the living room have UV protection to help preserve furniture, fabrics and the current owner's baby grand piano. Roth's mastery is evident throughout. The approximately 965 square feet of usable, actual space is laid out wonderfully to maximize both the sense of space and the distinction between public and personal areas. The combined living/entertaining area is 28 X 23 feet, with three interconnected but distinct spaces: the grand 13 1/3 by 20 foot living room and the adjoining 15 by 8 foot formal entry foyer on one side and the 10 by 10 1/2 foot open dining area on the other, each opening directly onto the living room. The large 17 by 11 foot bedroom and the bath are down another long, closet-filled hallway. The well-proportioned bedroom's two sets of exposures, north and east, provide multiple design opportunities as well as possible future conversion to a two-bedroom apartment. The updated north-facing windowed kitchen features a farmhouse sink, custom cabinets by Candlelight Cabinetry, marble and butcher block countertops, GE profile appliances, and a vented Splendide washer dryer. The bathroom is also windowed, with warm beige granite walls. The apartment has two bedroom closets, two hallway closets and an extra large double-depth coat closet. The Normandy, landmarked and impeccably maintained, offers numerous amenities including full service 24-hour doorstaff, grand furnished lobby with piano facing Riverside Drive, community room, large furnished roof deck with fabulous Hudson River and sunset views, a gym, a laundry room, bike room, playroom, and storage. A live-in resident manager as well as house staff ensures the Normandy always runs efficiently. At The Normandy, 140 Riverside Drive, Apt. 18D, pets are permitted. Maximum financing permitted is 75% of purchase price.
