Not often does a high floor 4-5 bedroom come to market with 14 over-sized picture windows on the perfect corner of Riverside Park. With unobstructed and dazzling northwest views all the way up the Hudson River to the George Washington Bridge, this apartment and its views are one in a million.
Designed to showcase a major art collection by the previous proprietors, Apartment 14AB was described in a 2015 New York Times article: âOver five decades, the owners built an art collection that seemed to fill every inch of their Manhattan apartment, initially a two-bedroom that grew as they combined it with the apartment next door. There was a Calder sculpture on a tabletop, a Calder on a bookcase, and a Calder mobile hung from the ceiling. When there was no room left to hang the Picasso or Matisse drawings in the Riverside Drive home on the Upper West Side, the couple stacked artworks on the floor, against the wall.â
Currently configured with three bedrooms including a double master suite as well as a den, this thoughtfully combined home with a flexible floorplan can be easily converted to include a fourth or fifth bedroom and an additional bathroom.
Original architectural details throughout include high-beamed ceilings, herringbone floors and a beautiful open floorplan. The apartment is also outfitted with numerous built-ins and extra storage options.
A wide central foyer leads to a grand, north-facing living room with enough space to accommodate two large seating areas. The northeast wing features two bedrooms, a den (or third bedroom), and two full bathrooms, as well as a laundry room and kitchenette with a wine refrigerator that can be accessed through a separate entrance. Updated with top-of-the-line appliances, the eat-in kitchen has river views, abundant storage, and connects to a formal dining room.
The corner master bedroom suite on the northwest wing of the home is unlike any you've ever seen in size, with room for a California king bed on one end and a large seating area on the other. The double master bath is luxurious and tranquil with gold fixtures, double sinks, custom tiled floors, a soaking tub, and separate stall shower.
