This two-bedroom pad comes from the prewar condo at 706 Riverside Drive, in Hamilton Heights. Though the building is classic the apartment’s been renovated to look more like a zen loft downtown. A “double loft wonderland” was added to the second bedroom, alongside reclaimed wood shelving and unique decor. After last selling in 2007 for $349,830, it is now asking $775,000.
The apartment is connected by a long hallway, with the kitchen on one side and the bedrooms on another. In the hallway, reclaimed wood from Astoria was used to build the shelving unit. There are also some hidden surprises throughout the unit, like the fold-out desk in the hallway cabinet.
The separate, windowed kitchen is adjacent to the living room.
The spacious master bedroom, with a corner of windows perfect for plants, fits a king-size bed. The apartment gets eastern and southern light throughout the day.
The second bedroom can also fit a king-size bed, but it’s been updated with a “double loft wonderland,” as the listing calls it, a sleeping space that accommodates two full-size beds above. Underneath, there’s space for playing and studying. As the listing notes, the double loft can be easily removed without damage to the floors. The second bedroom also features another surprise design element, pull-up desktops.
This is a first-floor unit within the 51-unit condo. The building has a laundry room in the lobby and storage space in the basement, plus extremely low taxes and common charges. The location, as you might guess, is just a short walk from Riverside Park.
