A Classic Prewar on Riverside Drive for $2.65M, Dazzling Sunsets Guaranteed

Posted On Wed, June 1, 2016 By

Posted On Wed, June 1, 2016 By In Cool Listings, Upper West Side 

This two-bedroom prewar co-op on a pretty stretch of Riverside Drive on the Upper West Side has all the necessities in place to be, as the listing says, a retreat from busy city life–like closets galore and a layout built for convenience (laundry room, office, bedrooms opposite the living area). The corner unit means plenty of windows for enjoying the view, an unobstructed eyeful of the Hudson River, Riverside Park and the evening sunset, depending on the time of day and which direction you happen to be facing. For $2.65 million you could easily move in, forward the mail and call it a day, but there are plenty of improvements, enhancements and personalizations to be made–give that kitchen some love, for example, since there’s plenty of space to elevate it to eat-in status.

300 Riverside Drive Bedroom 3

The apartment’s six rooms, large where it counts, get brilliant light from big picture windows and brilliant sunsets and seasonal vistas.

300 Riverside Drive Entry

Original prewar details like high beamed ceilings, oversized windows, hardwood floors and detailed moldings have been lovingly preserved throughout.

300 Riverside Drive Library

A gracious floor plan balances entertaining and living spaces, with an open expanse on the park comprising the living and dining room, plus an entry foyer and a small study.

300 Riverside Drive Kitchen

300 Riverside Drive Bedroom 2

The bright kitchen gets park views and is ready to go with a new dishwasher, a butler’s pantry, and a large staff room currently being used as a home office/laundry room.

300 Riverside Drive Bedroom 1

The more private side of the apartment offers two spacious bedrooms including a corner master suite with, you guessed it, great views. Two bathrooms and lots and lots of storage including a large walk-in cedar closet stand at the ready to conceal a multitude of whatever you choose. Sitting above the Hudson, the beloved New York City residential thoroughfare of Riverside Drive mixes natural tranquility and the best in city living, no matter the season.
