Stunning Six with the Park at Your Door
A flowing one-of-a-kind layout distinguishes this stylishly reimagined, up-to-the-minute, sun-filled Classic 6 on the park at Riverside Drive and 78th Street. Step into this wonderfully scaled and elegantly appointed home from its semi-private elevator landing, and be greeted by an impressive entry gallery, leading to adjoining formal dining and living rooms which span over 34 feet and feature five large East-facing windows. Meticulously crafted custom built-ins and details abound, including the masterful use of handsome cerused oak in both the sun-washed square living room and formal dining room.
The striking windowed eat-in kitchen is truly chef-ready, featuring top-of-the-line finishes and appliances including a Miele oven and gas range, oversized Sub-Zero refrigerator, deep double sink, Bosch dishwasher, and an abundance of granite counter and hard-wood cabinet space. The original staff room, with adjoining windowed full bath, has been transformed into a laundry and storage room with a full-sized Frigidaire vented washer and dryer and capacious storage.
The bedroom wing is completely separate and private and each corner bedroom boasts its own en-suite windowed full bath. The bedrooms are both bright and quiet, and there is a tasteful mahogany office built-in the second bedroom. The bath adjoining the primary bedroom is enormous and spa-caliber, with extensive custom teak cabinetry, stone floors, and radiant heating. Throughout you'll find multi-zone central air conditioning, custom recessed dimmable LED lighting perfect for displaying an art collection, built-in speakers, hard-wood-oak parquet floors, and 9-foot ceilings.
54 Riverside is in impeccable financial and physical condition and boasts some of the largest homes in the area. Built in 1927 and incorporated in 1969, this quiet and discreet address offers a 24-hour doorman, a resident building manager, porters, and bike and general storage. Two separate elevator wings serve to maintain an unusual degree of intimacy and privacy.
Just outside you'll enjoy all the glorious amenities of Riverside Park, with its trails, playgrounds, dog runs and of course the legendary boat basin. The finest of the Upper West Side is all close, including the best shopping at Zabar's, Citarella and Fairway, the top venues for dining and entertainment, nearby subway and bus service, as well as everything that makes West Side and Riverside Park living so rich and rewarding.
