At the crest of the hill leading to the Firemen's Memorial in the Riverside-West End Historic District sits a sophisticated and unassuming two-bedroom home. Lifted and away from the sidewalk, six feet below, these nearly 1,300 square feet have a parlor-floor feel that conveys a private, almost maisonette-style of living where the coming and going of your life is fluid and anonymous.
Fully renovated in 2014 the residence has tremendous air and scale thanks to quality materials, an open plan, vaulted ceilings approaching 12 feet, and oversize windows in every... single... room. Originally known as the Chateaux and built in the renaissance-revival style at the turn of the century, this eight-story building was converted 100 years later with its essence spectacularly intact and restored with twenty-first-century conveniences.
A virtual doorman and live-in superintendent help with maintenance and packages and there are bicycle and storage rooms also. Should Riverside Park prove too rustic then an extraordinary roof deck provides alfresco -kitchen, -dining, and -lounge options complete with power and water access. Inside the home are a stacked washer/dryer, three-zones of ductless air conditioning, en-suite master bathroom and a second full bath, no less than eight closets, and a wine fridge.
The carrying costs in this financially sound condominium are exceptional. There is an assessment in place through March of 2021 to address Local Law 11.
A world away from the bustle yet a mere block and a half from the beating heart of the Upper West Side that is Broadway, express trains, buses, and the Henry Hudson Parkway.
Easy access by private appointment.
