Loft Living at River House
In one of New York's most prestigious and highly serviced cooperatives, this nine-room apartment has a contemporary feel: airy, light-filled, and elegant. The public rooms make an immediate impression. Anchored by a sensational view east to the river, the impressive living and dining room are perfect for entertaining, measuring close to 1,100 square feet. The fireplace is wood burning.
The apartment, measuring approximately 4,020 square feet, has a flexible layout with potential for four large bedrooms each with en suite baths. The kitchen is immense, open to the west and filled with light at all hours of the day. Smartly located off the gallery is a powder room.
The apartment is excellent for art and lends itself to works of all sizes, in particular, the scale of the rooms and approximate 10' ceilings allow for large format works.
River House is known as cooperative which offers every comfort one might wish in a building committed to the highest level of service and care. Built as a cooperative in 1931 on a cul de sac, one enters through grand entrance gates to a private planted cobblestone courtyard and automobile turnaround leading to the building's front entrance and lobby where the building's staff is ready to be of assistance. The lobby opens onto a formal garden with fountain and a view of the East River beyond. There is a lower garden with a large open lawn where residents can relax, and children can play. The building offers a tranquil setting in a busy city.
River House residents are welcome to membership in River Club. The club, located in the building, can be accessed through River House. The club has a library, dining room and bar, ballroom, guest bedrooms, squash and tennis courts, swimming pool, library, golf simulators and fitness center. It can also provide food service at certain times to an apartment.
