Introducing 440 Riverside Drive, #48 - a rarely available and truly exceptional residence which combines impeccable renovations, pre-war magnificence, private outdoor space, and an amazing, flexible layout!

Residence 48 features a private balcony and is currently configured as a 4-bedroom with 3 full bathrooms, and a den/home office. The layout can easily be modified to suit a variety of uses ? including the creation of a massive great room that would measure approx. 50' x 38' (as shown in alternate floor plan). This trophy home delivers an elevated standard of living and comfort with superior work-from-home potential, modern luxuries and pre-war charm within the most architecturally significant building on Riverside Drive - located directly across from Riverside Park!

The residence's gracious foyer features elegant marble floors and a large coat closet. The foyer is flanked to the right by a sun-drenched den/home office with beautiful French Doors. Opposite is a full-bath which includes a closeted full-size washer / vented dryer. The great room is a perfect space for entertaining with an expansive, open layout that includes generous space for living and dining. The space receives outstanding natural light via the French doors leading out to the private balcony and long wall of charming windows running alongside it. Tasteful wrought iron railings line the balcony where you can watch the sun rise over beautiful buildings or set down across Riverside Park. A fantastic built-in fireplace with TV above and rich hardwood floors round out the space which is open to the spacious kitchen and a dream for any chef. Custom cabinetry and top of the line finishes, countertops, and appliances surround a massive island with breakfast bar seating for family and friends to gather around.

The peaceful and private bedroom wing includes three secondary bedrooms all providing excellent proportions that are rarely found in the city. Additionally, there is a designer full-bathroom complete with radiant heat floors. The luxurious master is privately set at the far end of the wing and includes an spa-like en-suite with a marble bath tub, oversized shower, radiant heat floors, and dual vanity.

Residence includes two large, deeded storage bins in the basement which were previously purchased for $25,000 each.

The home also can be purchased fully furnished for an additional $100,000.

440 Riverside Drive, spanning 13 stories, was built by the Paterno brothers in 1909 and designed by famed Morningside Heights architects Schwartz & Gross. The Paterno was converted to an exclusive cooperative in 1979. Its distinct and tasteful, curved facade defines Riverside Drive and West 116th Street and Riverside Drive, along with it's marvelous porte-cochere entrance. The lobby, outfitted with marble and stained-glass ceiling, along with the hallways, are being renovated. A gym is also in the works! Other amenities include a 24-hour doorman, live-in super, elevator, roof deck, central laundry, bike room, and storage. Pets are allowed.

The highly desirable location is near Columbia University, situated amidst architectural masterpieces, and right across from Riverside Park which features a playground, tennis & basketball courts, soccer fields, running & bike paths, a skateboard park & more!
