Imagine almost 2000 sqft. of space to create your own vision in a distinguished pre-war cooperative on the Upper West Side. 285 Riverside Drive #11C is your opportunity to bring your architect and make your designer dreams come true. Located on a quiet street with views of Riverside Park and the Hudson River from the high eleventh floor, sits this grand classic six apartment that is packed with possibility.
Enter from the semi-private landing off the elevator into the dramatic and expansive foyer, a perfect gallery to display your art collection. All three bedrooms are ensuite, with the original bathrooms and immense closet space, four of which are walk-in. All bathrooms are windowed and both the primary and secondary bedrooms can easily accommodate a king-size bed. The third and smaller bedroom, traditionally a maid's room, makes an excellent office and is perfectly secluded should you be working from home. The spectacular size alone of the living room with Hudson River views will be a true inspiration to imagine and design your signature of sophistication and elegance. The dedicated formal dining room, also expansive in scale and directly off of the living room, will have you hosting family and friends and gathering adored memories for years to come. There is a butler's pantry with an antique sink that could be restored or redesigned as a wet bar. The kitchen is waiting to be renovated in its current location or could be moved to open to the dining room (see alternate floor plan). 11C is equipped with a washer/dryer that is vented and has exceptional closet space throughout.
Built in 1926 by Rosario Candela, notably one of the most renowned pre-war architects. He was celebrated as a master of luxury interiors, which is on immediate display as you enter the building. The dramatic lobby features custom iron doors, carved ceilings, impeccable marble floors, and stained-glass windows. There is a 24-hour attended lobby, live-in super, porters, storage, and bike storage. Pets, co-purchasing, guarantors, and pied-a-terre are all allowed. There is a 2% flip paid by the purchaser and 67% financing is allowed.
Enjoy daily strolls through Riverside Park, the dog run, al fresco dining in the warmer months at Ellington in the Park, and many of the other world-class restaurants nearby. Shop at Columbus Square or zip down to Fairway or Zabar's on the 1 or 2 train line, bus service, or Citibike. 285 Riverside Dr. is a timeless building of refinement, waiting for your personal mark. Now is your opportunity to step into the magnificent history of 285 Riverside Dr. #11C and create your present dream.
