Affordable Old World elegance on Riverside Drive. Great value for a super-charming starter apartment in The Riviera, one of the most sought after buildings in the coveted Audubon Park Historic District on upper Riverside Drive. This stunning 1910 Beaux Arts building is surrounded by a glorious turn-of-the-century neighborhood just steps from Audubon Terrace, America's first planned cultural center. This glorious building is located one block west of the 1 train at 157th St and a few blocks from the C train at 155th allowing you to be in midtown in less than 30 minutes. This elegant home has an open, loft-like feel with high ceilings, a roomy living space, open kitchen and a large bedroom. This pin drop quiet space has a bright southern exposure with an open view to the historic Our Lady of Esperanza church through oversized oak framed windows and a generously proportioned, windowed bathroom. The magnificent Riviera was built on what was originally part of the farm owned by painter and naturalist John James Audubon. With its original details intact, the building has a grand marble lobby lined with stain glass windows and a splendid hand-painted coffered ceiling with a guilt iron and marble double staircase. The building has a full time doorman, live-in superintendent, laundry, bike room and additional storage. The co-op is pet friendly and allows co-purchasing, guarantors, gifting and purchasing by parents. The residence provides easy access to all the restaurants and conveniences lining upper Broadway with close proximity to the pedestrian bridge at 151st Street leading to Fort Washington Park and the Hudson River Greenway. Here you can enjoy Riverbank State Park, a 28-acre state-of-the-art facility offering recreational, athletic and arts activities for all ages. This celebrated location also provides easy access to Super Foodtown and Fairway markets and is a short drive to the West Side Hwy and GW Bridge at 158th Street or across 155th St to Yankee Stadium and the Major Deegan Expressway.Thought it wasn't possible to find a great, affordable home in Manhattan?
