Description

From your semi-private elevator landing apartment 8C offers a spacious "Classic Six" with river and park views in one of Riverside Drive's most prestigious cooperatives, designed by Rosario Candela in 1926, the foyer leads into a 31' entrance gallery making an impressive entry and an immediate reminder of why Candela apartments are so sought after. The apartment features an expansive living room with pretty North park and river views, two generously scaled bedrooms with ensuite baths, a formal dining room and a staff room and bath. The gracious dining room is so spacious that a separate room has been created and it is currently being used as an office. The wall can be taken down and its flexible layout easily lends itself to becoming a third bedroom or den. There is a windowed kitchen with a washer/dryer and an adjacent maid's room/office. It features an elegant layout with generous size rooms, plentiful closets, high-beamed ceilings, and hardwood floors. This is a beautiful home with river and park views, perfect for elegant living and entertaining.
The Building

A hallmark of this building is the lovely entrance wrought iron doors and a beautiful marble lobby with an intricately carved coffered ceiling. Candela is famous for the string of superluxury apartment houses he designed in the 1920s. He is the architect of such exceptional buildings as 1040 Fifth Avenue and 778 Park Avenue. Building amenities include private storage, laundry room and bike room.
