COMFY REVISION-READY CLASSIC BY RIVERSIDE PARK

BIG & BRIGHT RAW BEAUTY READY FOR YOUR UPGRADES

In 1926, the renowned master architect James E.R. Carpenter created what is now one of New York's most treasured buildings: 173-175 Riverside a formidable, handsome beauty with grand proportions and a supreme perch upon what the New York Landmarks Commission refers to as the most influential and architecturally important areas of the Upper West Side. This rambling residence is testament to Carpenter's timeless vision an important, inspiring find that is ready for its next exciting chapter.

A wide, twenty-feet deep entry gallery welcomes you into this rare residence. It brings you to the large living room, graced by two South facing windows. The primary bedroom suite is a corner abode with two exposures (cross breezes, anyone?) and ample closet space. Served by a classic, windowed bath with original cast iron soaking tub, the main bedroom is complemented by what can easily become a sizable second bedroom (see alternate floor plan). Formerly a big dining room, this space can be reimagined and reworked to create a comfortable second bedroom suite and a large dining foyer. The windowed, eat-in kitchen is large, versatile, and includes a washer/dryer. The closets are plentiful and immense. Underfoot are beautiful original hardwood floors, and soaring above are high ceilings with original plasterwork. Everywhere you look there is soul and beauty and potential. Throughout this home, there is a good feeling a feeling anchored in the classic comfort that comes with time.

Sweetly positioned in its stunning, historic building, this home enjoys the benefits of its full-service address. With a top tier staff that includes round-the-clock doormen, a resident superintendent, laundry/bike/storage rooms, a premium fitness center, and a playroom, life here is easy and convenient. Nearby is most every area cultural, educational, dining, and shopping destination, supreme access to Riverside Park, easy access to playgrounds, transportation, and more. Life here is easy, good, and fun.

In 1926, James E.R. Carpenter envisioned grand beauty and grace perched dramatically by Riverside Park. Today, that classic beauty and grace are right here waiting for you ready for your vision.
