Artfully designed and renovated, this 2-Bed/1-Bath home offers high ceilings and an open living space featuring a charming and functional kitchen. Bright light filters into this 10th floor apartment during the day, creating a cheery environment. The apartment is well situated in The Riviera, a classic pre-war, full-service co-op centered in the Audubon Park Historic District of lower Washington Heights; a quiet cul-de-sac separate and apart from Broadway's hustle-bustle, but close by if you need it.
Industrial style lighting and accessories tastefully complement the high ceilings and pre-war touches here. It's move-in ready to accommodate all sorts of eclectic or traditional tastes, also easily modifiable if you want to create a third bedroom (see optional plan).
The kitchen butcher-block counter serves the breakfast bar with a Bertazzoni range, fisher paykel refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, cast iron sink, SubZero wine cooler and custom kitchen storage wall all smartly utilitarian and attractive. The engineered, maple hardwood floors sheen complimented by deep pre-war style mouldings. The rear bedroom or home office has a panoramic view of the neighborhood, facing east.
Built in 1911 in the striking Beaux-Arts style, The Riviera at 790 Riverside Drive is an extraordinary masonry building by the architectural team of Rouse & Goldstone. Standing 13 stories tall between West 156th and 157th Streets, this full-service doorman building is pet friendly, with laundry, bike and storage lockers (extra) for residents. The co-op allows purchases by parents and co-purchases. FIOS or Spectrum service.
Audubon Park is a sought after community cul-de-sac, well suited for today's varied lifestyles and neighborly values. Stroll along winding streets past grand pre-war buildings down Riverside Drive, then across the Denny Farrell Pedestrian Bridge at 151st Street (ADA-accessible) to Fort Washington Park and the Hudson River Greenway. Swim, sport and relax at the Denny Farrell Riverbank State Park, a 28-acre state-of-the-art facility offering diverse recreational, athletic and arts experiences for all ages, interests and abilities. Shop 2 blocks away at Super Foodtown or dine at one of the many multi-cuisine outdoor restaurants along Broadway.
You'll also have easy access to Columbia University's burgeoning Manhattanville campus, CCNY, and the world-class NY Presbyterian/Columbia Medical Center. Engage in early Americana at the Morris-Jumel Mansion, Trinity Cemetery, Hamilton Grange, Hispanic Society and other historic locations.
Convenient transportation includes 600 feet to the 1 train at 157th, C train at 155th, and M4, M5 and BX6 buses on the Broadway corner. Quick auto access as well at 158th to the West Side Hwy and George Washington Bridge, and across 155th St to Yankee Stadium and the Major Deegan Expwy. Zip cars available all around.
