STUNNING PREWAR GEM! Move right into this lovely and spacious 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom home in mint condition. Perched on the top floor of a beautifully maintained, turn-of-the-century boutique cooperative, this special home boasts grand proportions, nearly 10-foot ceilings and original architectural details throughout. The pristine, designer renovation includes modern comforts, such as an LG washer and dryer, which complements the home without diminishing its timeless elegance. The gracious layout radiates out from the central entry foyer with deep walk-in closet. Facing onto tree-lined 92nd Street, the formal living room with gently curved outer wall, features restored crown and dentil moldings, central ceiling medallion and decorative fireplace mantel. The second bedroom is currently used as a dining room and includes pocket doors that open to the living room offering the potential to expand or enclose the room. The traditional bedroom entrance off of the foyer also showcases a glass transom window above the door. Adjacent to the living room, the windowed chef's kitchen is both stylish and practical with marble counters, floor to ceiling custom cabinetry, SubZero refrigerator and wine cooler, Viking range and Miele dishwasher. Conveniently nestled between the kitchen and living room, the over-sized entry foyer would also make an excellent formal dining area. The serene master bedroom is tucked away on the far side of the apartment for ultimate privacy. It features a large walk-in closet and a gorgeous ensuite marble bathroom with enclosed glass walk-in shower with marble bench, pedestal sink and Toto toilet. The second full bath is also beautifully designed with marble tiles, Kohler tub, and stone topped vanity.
Built at the turn of the century by renowned architect and longtime Upper West Side resident, Ralph Townsend, 194 Riverside Drive is a beautiful apartment building designed in the Neo-Renaissance style, setting itself apart from the neighboring buildings with its curvaceous façade of bay windows, classically inspired entrance with polished granite columns, and charming lion head relief sculptures flanking the main entrance. The dramatic lobby features an elegant barrel vault with decorative coffered ceilings as well as original stained glass. The building boasts a 24-hour doorman, stunning landscaped roof deck, playroom, private storage, bike room, and excellent live-in Super. According to local legend, architect Ralph Townsend lived on a boat offshore in the Hudson River while constructing the building. Today, the location on Riverside Drive just across from Riverside Park is one of the biggest draws to residents. Don't miss out on this rare opportunity to own a piece of history in one of the most desirable locations in Manhattan! Pets are welcome!
