194 Riverside Drive, 3CD - Upper West Side, New York

 

RARE, 11-ROOM RIVERSIDE HOME WITH DIRECT PARK VIEWS!
Now is your chance to own a grand, Riverside Drive home with direct views of Riverside Park. Watch the seasons change before your eyes. This incredible home is a rare gem that has not been divided into smaller units like most other sprawling prewar homes of this era. From the gracious, private entry foyer that greets you with its first glimpse of the Park to the impressive gallery drawing you forward to the majestic park views from the formal entertaining rooms, this elegant home awaits a new owner to restore it to its original splendor.

Apartment 3CD is one of only 4 units in the building that still displays the original grand 11-room layout, with 4-bedrooms, 3-bathrooms, over-sized living room, library, eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, breakfast room and 2 staff quarters. Architectural enthusiasts will thrill at the inlaid-wood ribbon border detail of the original hardwood floors, opulent plaster moldings, bay windows, high, beamed ceilings, as well as the gracious and expansive layout.

Built at the turn of the century by renowned architect and longtime Upper West Side resident, Ralph Townsend, 194 Riverside Drive is a stunning apartment building designed in the Neo-Renaissance style, setting itself apart from the neighboring buildings with its curvaceous façade of bay windows, classically inspired entrance with polished granite columns and charming lion head relief sculptures on either side of the main entrance. The beautiful lobby features an elegant barrel vault with decorative coffered ceilings as well as original stained glass. The building boasts a 24-hour doorman, landscaped roof deck, playroom, private storage, bike room, and excellent live-in Super. According to local legend, architect Ralph Townsend lived on a boat offshore in the Hudson Rivers while constructing the building. Today, the location on Riverside Drive just across from Riverside Park is one of the biggest draws to residents.

Don't miss out on this rare opportunity to own a piece of history in one of the most desirable locations in Manhattan! Pets are welcome!
